A spelling booklet was sent home with your child. It has one month's worth of words in it. The dates of the tests are written at the top of each page. Please practice the words and sentences each night with your child so that they are ready for the test on Fridays. Most of their practice will take place at home, not in the class.
Occassionally classwork will be sent home to be completed and returned the next day. There will also be Home Connection activities and games that you can do with your child. These are great for reinforcing math skills taught in class.
Each month your child will have a monthly family project that is due at the end of the month. Detailed directions will be included with these projects. Please take the time to complete them neatly and creatively. Be sure to complete all the required components. Sometimes you have to create a project AND a poster explaining it. These projects are always sent home early in the month so that you have lots of time to complete them. They are required and count as multiple grades such as, reading, communication, homework, social studies, etc.
