Homework

·
  • Your child should study their spelling words and sight words each night at home. Your child will have Math homework Monday- Thursday. They will also have a brown manilla reading folder that will go home Monday-Thursday with nightly reading homework. Please initial the signing sheet in the folder each day and return it to school. Also make sure to check the L and R sides of your child's B.I.R.D. Book.
