Please help your child to practice reading the Words to Know in their Vocabulary and Fluency books.  It is important for your child to read the words to you to assure they are reading the words correctly.  Please mix up the order as they practice.  Also have your child read the fluency practice sheet to you.  Their reading speed should improve with each reading.
Children will receive a spelling list on Monday.
Mon. - write each word two times
Tues. - Thurs. - spelling practice pages
Fri. - spelling test in class
Math practice page.
Practice reading Math Vocabulary (flash cards from their book sent home with each chapter).  Practice addition and subtraction facts daily.  Flash cards with answers on the back are great for this.  They can be purchased or made with index cards.

Homework should not be a stressful event and is meant to reinforce what we have been learning in class.  Please let me know if your child is being stressed over it.
