Homework for the Week!

(Please remember how important it is for your child to do their homework on the assigned night. Please do not work ahead.)

 

Monday: This is your first night of first grade homework! Because it is so important to get off to a good start with homework, tonight is your night to get your homework area all setup. Take some time tonight to talk with Mom and Dad and answer these questions:

 

Where will you do your homework?

 

When will you do your homework?

 

Who will be your homework helper?

 

Set up your homework spot with pencils, markers, crayons, primary lined paper, scissors and erasers, and your first grade homework book. Now you will have everything you will need to be successful with homework this year!

 

Complete the attached paper and return to school tomorrow. Be ready to share your homework plan with the class.

 

Parents please take a moment to test your child’s login information for our reading program. Your child’s username and password can be found in the technology section of your homework book. The website is:

Tuesday: In science we have become Developmental Scientists. We have been learning about the stages of human development. Parents please allow your child to cut out photos from magazines of people at different stages of development. Each child is asked to bring in 3 pictures. The pictures can depict an infant, toddler, child, adolescent, adult, or elderly adult. Children please place your pictures in an envelope or Ziploc bag with your name on it. Hand in tomorrow.

 

Parents please take a moment to test your child’s login information for Xtra Math. Your child’s enrollment code can be found in the technology section of your homework book. The website is:

Wednesday: No Homework! Family Game Night! Every Wednesday there will be no homework assigned. This is the perfect time to play a game as a family. Learning to take turns, follow directions, work cooperatively, and win or lose gracefully. This is also a good time to practice a skill that needs some extra practice.

 

Thursday: In your homework book, in the technology section, you received a letter about IXL. This is an important tool for practicing all first grade math standards. Please take the time to login to your child’s account and verify that their login information is working. If there is a problem please email me right away. I will be assigning homework on IXL. When your child receives an assignment I will ask them to practice a particular skill and practice on IXL for a minimum of 15 minutes. If they master the assigned skill before their 15 minute requirement is met they are expected to pick another skill to work on until they have practiced for at least 15 minutes.

 

I will check the teacher portal the next morning and give your child credit for homework completed. If your child practices for 15 minutes the will receive a 3. If they practice but do not meet the 15 minute minimum they will be given a 2. If they do not practice at all they will receive a 1. If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Tonight’s IXL Homework: A.1, A.2, A.3, and A.5.

 

ø  Please complete only First Grade activities. If a student masters all first grade standards I will meet with parents about how to move forward.

 

Blue Friday: Tomorrow is Blue Friday. Wear your favorite Seahawks shirt (or blue shirt) with uniform bottoms.

 

Important Notes for the Week!

 

Back to School Night: Thank you so much for the wonderful turnout for Back to School Night. You are the reason that our school and our students are so successful in all aspects of their lives. Thank you for your constant support and encouragement.

Homework Letter: This is the first of many homework letters. Each Monday your child will receive their homework letter with important information and assignments for the week. The homework letter will also be posted on the St. Charles website. Remember that it is very important for your child to complete the homework on the evening it is assigned and return it to school the following morning.

 

Auction Shirts: Auction shirts may be worn each Wednesday with uniform pants, shorts, skirt, or jumper.

 

Primary Lined Homework Paper – I have the packs of primary lined homework paper in the classroom for $5.00 a pack. Feel free to share a pack with a friend. You can also send the money in with your child and I will put the paper in their backpack.

 

Library: Tuesday (1B) and Wednesday (1A) are library days! Please have your child bring their library books back to school with them by Tuesday (1B) or Wednesday (1A) morning. If your child happens to forget their books, please do not make a special trip home to get them. They can return the books before school the following day. This is a wonderful opportunity for them to become more responsible.

 

September Prayer: Sign of the Cross

Student Absences: This year the office will be calling home for every single absences. If your child is going to be absent please: email the school office (jschmitz@stcharlesb.org) or email your child's teacher (1A – wgeorge@stcharlesb.org), (1B – lbordeaux@stcharlesb.org), or leave a voicemail on our attendance line.
