Homework 1/14-1/18

Homework is due Friday, January 18th.

  • A letter titled “Dear Family” will be sent home in your child’s green take-home-folder (Monday).  This week’s math activity is a review of the same math activity from last week. Please have your student review it as the students still need some extra work on it.  It provides an activity to do together.  Please read the letter and invite your child to share what they know about the concept by doing the activity together. You do not need to return the math homework this week.  
Optional: for extra math practice, play any of these Math Fact Activities 2018

2- Reading Fluency on Raz-Kids.  This past week we officially began RAZ-KIDS our online reading homework. Each Friday I will pull an online report showing student usage for the week and their comprehension scores for the quizzes they have taken.

Happy reading :)

As well as making and confirming predictions. These comprehension strategies also assist them in preparing for our middle of year reading tests.
