I am looking forward to meeting my new first grade friends! :)
1st Grade Homework
New spelling list comes home today! :) Practice by writing each word on a note card and then sorting the cards into categories based on spelling patterns.
Use the note cards to read each spelling word aloud and then cover up the word and write it from memory on a piece of paper. Uncover the words to check and correct your spelling.
Cut the word cards into separate letters and mix the letters up. Then use the letters to build each spelling word.
Take a practice spelling test using the blue HW sheet that comes home today. Follow the directions for each step. After checking the test, write any missed words 3 times. Don't forget to practice your sentence, too! This HW paper does NOT need to be returned to me.
Spelling test today! :) Please think carefully, use your neatest handwriting, and do your BEST! You will be a shining STAR!
Please read aloud to a parent 15 min./evening. You should see paperback books coming home 2-3 days each week. It is beneficial for your child to read these books aloud to Mom or Dad. Please be SURE that you bring your literacy book back to school each and EVERY day! THANKS!
