Weekly Homework  - Homework will be discussed at 
    back to school night. 
    First Grade Homework Guidelines 
    Homework is due on Fridays 
    If there is no school on a Friday, it is due on Thursday.

    Check Homework sheet posted each week for all homework assignments.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!


    Reading at home should be done for 15-20 minutes at least five days a week.  


    Please do not do all homework in one night for the week.  Research has shown that daily practice is more

    beneficial than one night of a week’s worth of homework.
    White communication folders - come home Friday, take all papers out and return on Monday. 
    **Please Note: Homework will be explained in detail at Back to School Night, if you have
    questions please ask.

    Homework will be sent home weekly. I will send homework on Monday afternoon for
    that week.
    There are 4 boxes of homework for the week. (3 on a week with no Monday or Friday). All need
    to be completed and turned in on Friday. It does not matter which order the
    work is completed, but ideally students are to work on 1 box each night. 
     All homework will be a review of what is being taught in class. 
    In addition to nightly homework, students will need to read every night!
    We ask that they read 15-20 minutes. PLEASE spend time listening to your child
    read. Read to your child as well. You will be modeling good reading strategies such
    as fluency and reading with expression, as well as sharing your joy of reading.

    Homework Practice Guidelines 
    • All homework is due on Fridays. (If there is no school, it is due on Thursday.)
    • Homework folder should be kept clean and organized. 
    • Keep all sheet protectors in the folder.
    • All written homework should be completed on blank paper and stapled together

    Please do not do all homework on one day. Students should complete 1 box each night.
