Homework (material to review and practice for tests)

Seatwork- Each week, I will send home any unfinished worksheets that students have not finished in class for homework. If your child has a lot of pages, I encourage them to do only a page or two a night. Please use these pages to review and practice the concepts we are learning. Also, I will send home checked seatwork to use to review.

Mathwritten– counting pennies and nickels; count by 10s; fill in before and after numbers by 10s, addition and subtraction facts Families 1-7; story problems; count by ones, fives and tens; oral-answer 5 addition problems, and Speed Drill – students have 1and half minutes to complete 12 addition and subtraction problems (4 sets of these)

PHONICS:  For written test– write letter sounds, write special sounds in words (study Chart 6,7,8), write words with special sounds and spelling words; and oral test -practice reading one-syllable words with one or two vowels, and words with special sounds from Chart 6 and 7.

The Handbook for Reading (apple book) is your “Phonics Bible”.  Have your child read letter sounds, blends with long and short vowel sounds, and words to you.  You could also dictate sounds, blends, and clue words for special sounds to your child for him/her to write.  Your child should be memorizing the special sounds and clue words for Charts 6 and 7.  We learn these so that students can use this when sounding out new words.  They should read each special sound and clue word and then spell them (example:  “ck in duck, c – k”).  You could make a matching game with the clue words on one type of card and the special sounds on another, mix them up, and have your child match the clue word with the special sound.  Note:  blends should be read as one sound, not sounding out each letter (example:  “la”, not “l – a”).

Spelling: For homework, I sent home a Spelling Bee sheet. Students need to write their words 3 times by Thursday and return in their red folder on Thursday for extra points. Each day students should study their words.

For the test this week, study these words: day, play, pray, gray, stay, spray, clay, way, stray, hay, is, are

HANDWRITING:  If your child is not getting A’s on the Writing tests, he/she should practice writing at home using lined paper that we use at school (with dotted lines in the middle).  You could have your child write the spelling words, his/her name (which is also graded on the writing tests).   Using the Manuscript Guide (copy in your Orientation packet), have your child practice writing the alphabet and numbers, and words. Make sure that they are holding their pencils correctly.

Bible: Bible verse:  Psalm 34:15 “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry for help.”

Bible story for this week is Bride for Isaac (Gen 24:1-67) and Jacob and Esau part A (Gen 25:19-34)

Language: We are learning about Article Adjectives: A, An, The. We classify them with a capital A. On Wednesday, we will have a quiz classifying sentences. We are classifying sentences with Article Adjective(A)- Adjective (Adj) -Subject Noun (SN)—Verb (V)—Adverb (Adv).

On Thursday, I will send home the worksheets we have done in class for students to use to review for test on next Monday.

We classify sentences in the same order EVERY time:  Subject noun (which answers the question What or Who); then Verb (Action – what did the subject DO?); then Adverb (which answers questions How? When? Where?) and Adjective (which answers what kind? Which one? How many?). There are no questions to find the Article Adjectives, we just know that we must look for A, An, The.

Reading: Comprehension Test will include a short story and questions about the story. I sent home a Reading Homework Calendar last week. Please read the assigned pages each day and initial the date after reading. The reading calendar can be folded and kept in the reader or in the red folder.

Science: We have been learning about birds. We will be finishing our bird booklet this week and will send it home by Friday to use to review for test next week.

HOMEWORK

Bible:   This week’s memory verse is Psalm 34:15 “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry for help.”  No Bible story test this week because we are working on our chapel program, Daniel and the Lions’ Den.  Scripts will go home this week.  If your child has lines to learn, you have some time to help your child learn his/her lines.  The narrator does not have to memorize his lines.

Math:   Practice Addition and Subtraction Families 1 – 7; practice counting pennies, nickels, and dimes (count by ones, fives, and tens—always start with the highest value coin first); before and after numbers by ones and tens; review Arithmetic worksheets.

Phonics/Spelling:  Practice Charts 6 – 8; practice blends in Handbook for Reading; say short and long vowel words to your child and have him/her sound them out and write them; practice Spelling words every day (have child write words as you dictate them or spell them to you orally).  Read words to your child from the Handbook and have him/her write the special sound(s) they hear in the words.

Spelling List 5 (for test Thurs.) – day, play, pray, gray, stay, spray, clay, way, stray, hay, to, you, have, does, for

Spelling List 6 (to be introduced Thurs. for next week’s test) – cuff, puff, stuff, sniff, cross, bless, will, well, bell, doll, your, of, said, says, has

Language:  We will complete Chapter 6.  See the practice worksheets that are sent home.  All of the vocabulary words we use are usually listed at the bottom of the pages.  You may make up sentences using these words and have your child classify them.  You can send them in (Take Home folder), and I will check them for you, if you want.  We don’t classify the sentences from left to right.  We find the subject first, then verb, then adverb, then adjective, then article adjective.

Reading:  SIGHT WORDS:  It would be great if you could pick up a pack of sight words flashcards and practice at home.  I am seeing that many students do not know common sight words.  We made some flashcards at the beginning of the year.  See the Reading Homework calendar for daily reading homework pages.  Don’t forget the Handbook (HB) pages.  Initial the date after listening to your child read.  Your child should be reading fluently and with expression.

Writing:  If your child is not getting A’s on Writing tests, please have him/her practice at home.  Send in the practice sheets (in the Take Home folder), and I’ll give him/her a coupon for the extra work (10 coupons = prizebox).  I AM SENDING HOME SLOPPY WORK TO BE ERASED AND REDONE.

Science:  We are studying birds.  No homework.

TEST SCHEDULE

Monday – make-up tests

Tuesday – Writing, Reading Comp

Wednesday – Math test and Speed Drill

Thursday – Phonics and Spelling tests

Friday – Bible verse and story tests

HOMEWORK:

BibleThis week’s memory verse:   Psalm 34:14 “Turn away from evil and do what is good; seek peace and pursue it.”  The Bible stories are “The Offering of Isaac” (Genesis 22:1-14; Hebrews 11:17-19) and A Bride for Isaac “ (Gen. 24:1-67).

Next week’s memory verse:  Psalm 34:15 “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry for help.”

Phonics/Spelling:   Practice Charts 6 – 8 (chart 8 will not be on the test); practice blends and words in Handbook for Reading; say short and long vowel blends/words to your child and have him/her sound them out and write them; practice Spelling words every day (have child write words as you dictate them or spell them to you orally).  We made flashcards for Chart 8 (special sounds on one side and clue words on the other).  Practice these with your child.

Spelling list 4 (for Thursday’s test):  back, bake, lick, like, snack, snake, brick, clock, shake, broke, comes, is, are, they, friend

Spelling list 5 (to be introduced Thurs. for next week’s test):  day, play, pray, gray, stay, spray, clay, way, stray, hay, to, you, have, does, for

Language:   Review classifying sentences using worksheets I send home.  When we classify sentences, we always identify the SUBJECT NOUN FIRST (SN); then the VERB (V); then the ADVERB (ADV); then the ADJECTIVE (ADJ); then the ARTICLE ADJECTIVE (A).  Students are having trouble remembering to capitalize the first word in the sentence and put a period at the end.  You could give them some sentences to write correctly (use spelling words to study spelling at the same time).  We are starting Chapter 6, and sentences may now have more than one adjective or adverb.  Also, students must now put the capitalization rule(s) used for each sentence at the end of the sentences.  See the worksheets that go home.

Reading:  See the Reading Homework calendar for each day’s reading homework.  Initial the date after you listen to your child read.  Encourage speed and fluency, as well as accuracy.  If your child misses blends/words on the Phonics tests, have him/her read pages in the Handbook for practiceIF YOU SEE SIGHT WORD FLASHCARDS FOR SALE, PICK UP A PACK (we made them at school, but your child may not have them anymore).  STUDENTS ARE GETTING THE HANG OF USING THE VOWEL RULES AND SPECIAL SOUNDS, BUT SIGHT WORDS JUST NEED TO BE MEMORIZED.  THIS WOULD BE A GREAT THING TO DO IN THE CAR (SIBLINGS CAN HELP).

Math:   Practice Addition and Subtraction Families 1 – 7; count pennies and dimes (always start with the highest value coin first); practice finding greatest, least, and in between numbers; review number sequences; review Arithmetic worksheets.  We just introduced nickels, so they will not be on this week’s test.

Science:  We begin our unit on Birds.  No homework.

Seatwork- Last week, I sent home any unfinished worksheets that students had not finished in class for homework. If your child has a lot of pages, I encourage them to do only one or two pages a night. Please use these pages to review and practice the concepts we are learning.

Mathwritten– counting pennies and dimes together; count by 10s; addition and subtraction facts Families 1-6; story problems; fill in missing numbers in a sequence; finding greatest and least number out of 3 numbers; oral-answer 5 addition problems, and Speed Drill – students have 1and half minutes to complete 12 addition and subtraction problems (4 sets of these)

PHONICS:  For written test– write letter sounds, write special sounds in words (study Chart 6 and 7) and spelling words; and oral test -practice reading one-syllable words with one or two vowels, and words with special sounds from Chart 6 and 7.

Phonics quiz- marking vowels in one-vowel and two-vowel words. One vowel rule: if only 1 vowel in a word, then vowel is short sound. If word has 2 vowels, then first vowel is long sound and second vowel is silent.

The Handbook for Reading (apple book) is your “Phonics Bible”.  Have your child read letter sounds, blends with long and short vowel sounds, and words to you.  You could also dictate sounds, blends, and clue words for special sounds to your child for him/her to write.  Your child should be memorizing the special sounds and clue words for Charts 6 and 7.  We learn these so that students can use this when sounding out new words.  They should read each special sound and clue word and then spell them (example:  “ck in duck, c – k”).  You could make a matching game with the clue words on one type of card and the special sounds on another, mix them up, and have your child match the clue word with the special sound.  Note:  blends should be read as one sound, not sounding out each letter (example:  “la”, not “l – a”).

Spelling: For homework, I sent home a Spelling Bee sheet. Students need to write their words 3 times by Thursday and return in their red folder on Thursday. Each day students should study their words.

For the test this week, study these words: bean, made, cat, kick, cone, keep, cute, boat, man, sun, the, a

HANDWRITING:  If your child is not getting A’s on the Writing tests, he/she should practice writing at home using lined paper that we use at school (with dotted lines in the middle).  You could have your child write the spelling words, his/her name (which is also graded on the writing tests).   Using the Manuscript Guide (copy in your Orientation packet), have your child practice writing the alphabet and numbers, and words. Make sure that they are holding their pencils correctly.

Social Studies: We will be finishing Unit 1- learning about rules and laws in school and in our community. I will send home a vocabulary list for Unit 1.  We will have a quiz with these words and definitions next week.

Bible: Bible verse:  Psalm 34:13 ” Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from deceitful speech.”

Bible story for this week is Abraham’s Guests Destroy Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 18:1- 33 and Gen.19: 1-4, 9-29).

Language: We are learning about adjectives.  We are classifying sentences with Adjective (Adj) -Subject Noun (SN)—Verb (V)—Adverb (Adv).  See worksheets that I send home.  We classify sentences in the same order EVERY time:  Subject noun (which answers the question What or Who); then Verb (Action – what did the subject DO?); then Adverb (which answers questions How? When? Where?) and Adjective (which answers what kind? Which one? How many?).

Reading: Comprehension Test will include a short story and questions about the story. I sent home a Reading Homework Calendar last week. Please read the assigned pages each day and initial the date after reading. The reading calendar can be folded and kept in the reader or in the red folder.
