Homework is sent home on Monday and due back on Friday. At this time there will be one spelling sheet and a reading log.
I ask students to read a minimum of 15 minutes per night for at least four nights per week. If you are busy one evening, students can read 20 minutes for three nights or 30 minutes one extra evening. If your child reads 30 minutes EVERY evening he or she will get the greatest benefit in regard to gains in reading scores. Your child can read alone, you can read to your child or you and your child can take turns reading the same text.
We use Words Their Way for spelling. The students are asked to sort their words by looking for patterns within the words. Students should practice with their words every day. By the end of the week the word cards (or picture cards for some students) should be glued on a piece of paper. Using the backside of junk mail is perfectly fine with me, just make sure it has no personal information on it.
