HOMEWORK

1471072169033

Monthly Homework Calendar: This calendar will come home on the first of every month. Students will complete a short activity daily according to the calendar. There will be reading, math, and writing activities that you can do at home with your child. 

 

-Reading: Students should be practicing reading every day! Students can work on tracking print from left to write and attempting to read short words. Being read to is also great practice! Try to read at least 10-20 minutes a day!

 

--Raz Kids: Raz Kids is an online database that allows students to read, listen to, and answer questions about stories. This is a fantastic website and great practice for literacy! You can access Raz Kids by clicking here.

CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR PLAN

Here is our classroom behavior chart. It is a reward system that focuses on positives reinforcements. The students start out on green everyday and can clip up on the chart for good behavior. If they clip up to the red or star they will earn a reward coupon. They can redeem this at any time. If the student clips down to blue they will have the opportunity to clip back up. But if they clip down again to purple it will be the teachers discretion to decide if they miss out on something. If they clip down to pink I will contact you and let know what happened during the school day.
