Reading Homework-February 1st-3rd

Your child’s reading assignment will be found on our Daily 5 Choice Board. They can read it online or print a copy.

To make things even easier, you can have your child go directly to the online Classkick reading log. The link and the code is also located on the Daily 5 board.  Please remember to sign it each time your child reads.

They can navigate Classkick like pros and make the page ready for your signature by typing in the name of their book and the date. All you need to do is sign it. Once I see the signature, I can then add a sticker to the log. 

Our first day back was awesome!

  • Remember to use the reading strategies as a tool when completing the reading homework.
  • Please sign the reading log (in their grey take-home folder) each night (this lets me know the homework was completed) and your child will receive a stamp or sticker the following day. Online students received a PDF of their book and they too will receive a sticker each time the log is filled out. It is posted on Classkick. At the end of this month, the students are required to record themselves reading 1 book from their assigned homework on Classkick.

Social Studies Homework

Dear Parents,

This week the students were introduced to timelines. We brainstormed some of the big events in their life (the first time they rode their bike without training wheels, their first word etc…). They need your help filling out the dates of these special events and maybe even narrowing down their list to the top 5. There is a Social Studies’ timeline template in their grey take-home folder. Please take some time to help them with this task, it needs to be filled out for next Tuesday. Thank-you for your help. We will complete these timelines next week with the help of these completed templates.

Thank-you for helping us as we continue to learn and grow together.
