First grade homework will be sent home every Monday with the daily assignments. The assignments should be completed each night and returned on the last day of the week. The homework will support practice of new concepts and reinforce previously taught learnings. Daily reading is an integral part of first grade. This includes the child being the reader and the listener. As the year progresses, your student’s responsibility will increase as their reading skills develop.
Often the homework assignments ask for an illustration or to color, cut, glue, roll dice for a game. Many students tell us that they do not have supplies at home and are unable to complete their homework. It is a good idea to put together a container with school supplies that is designated for homework.
