2 Daily Assignments Required:
Nightly Reading - 15 min
Math Fact Practice - 2 to 5 min
Reading homework may consist of a combination
of an adult or older sibling reading to or with a child (at a higher level than
the child can read independently) and independent reading.
Math fact practice can be done with a water-based marker on the laminated math fact sheet in your child’s B.E.E. Book. Your child and I will be adding math fact sheets as s/he progresses. We will be doing 2-minute timings at
school. At home, however, you do not
need to time your child at first. I would rather
s/he finish the page 1 time. Then proceed to doing a timing.
Activities will be listed, and it will be up to you if you feel as if your child could benefit academically from them. I do not believe in giving lots of homework in first grade, however some parents and students appreciate having academic activities to do at home.
This is an individualized, brain-based activity for your child to do 5 - 10 mins prior to bedtime. (Research has proven that our brains actually retain what we do or study 5-10 mins prior to falling asleep.) The activity given will be short, fun, and optional.
