This year is a very important year as your child will not only learn skills in all subject areas but they will also lean how to become independent and lifelong learners. In order to do this, parent communication and participation is very important. Each week your child will have a homework sheet for the week in the front of their homework binder. This sheet will have all of the homework for the week as well as the weekly spelling words, sight words and what your child will be assessed on for the week. Please make sure that you are reviewing sight words each night with your child. The skill of being able to instantly read these words is one of the most important skills in being able to read at or above grade level. First grade sight word and spelling word lists are provided on the Resources page. Please feel free to contact me if you have any quesitons or concerns about your child's assignments or progress.
