On Friday, students took home their homework books for the first time. In their Home Practice bag is a duo-tang with songs, poems and activities we have been learning in the first three weeks. There are a few activities for students to complete if you wish. All children have also received a pencil, eraser and package of crayons to start them off this year. Please keep the latter at home.
Families can keep the home practice book at home until Tuesday night, to review materials sent home. Short periods of work/review on new or old material is the best way for young children to learn. Please return books, inside the bags every Wednesday, so that new material can be added and sent home on Friday again. This Home Practice program is optional for children, although review and practice is important for student growth and success. We are also helping children develop responsibility for personal items as they carry and unpack learning materials at school and home.
Please keep learning materials in a safe place, away from small children, pets and food.
Later in the year, students will receive books to borrow and read to/with family members.
