Math:  

Math homework will go home on Sunday and is due back Thursday. (though, it can be turned in before Thursday.)

Reading:

Also sent home was a Reading Log for your son/daughter. Please keep this in his/her Homework Folder, and use it to record your child’s nightly reading. Please be sure your child is reading about 20 minutes every night then filling in his/her reading log.  Our goal is to create life long readers.  Reading every night is extremely important in developing your child’s literacy skills and love for reading.

Using spellingcity.com

Click on the following video links to introduce your family to spellingcity.com: Spelling Practice Video 1, Spelling Practice Video 2.

The image below shows a portion of the screen the above link will take you to.  Click on one of the following options displayed to practice the current spelling words: “Spelling Test”,, “Teach Me”, or “Play a Game”.  Unfortunately, the “Flash Cards” and “Vocab Test” options require a paid membership.  I encourage you to explore the website with your son/daughter, trying out different games and activities.

If you are having trouble accessing the link, I have also sent home a paper copy of the spelling words to ensure your child has a chance to practice the words.

        Lastly….

        …please note that I do not grade homework for a letter grade. Homework is a chance to reinforce skills taught in class and to help strengthen routines at home.  Although, I will recognize and congratulate students whom consistently complete their Reading Log and show initiative with using www.spellingcity.com to improve their spelling and vocabulary skills.  I will also hold students accountable for completing math homework on time.

    Dear Mr. Rongcal, How can we find the new spelling words over the weekend? We love the pictures on the site. Thank you. Best regards, Anya’s Mom.

    • Hi Mrs. Kulchitsky –
      The spelling words are usually not online until Sat. or Sun. It’s usually not until I’ve looked at all the students’ work for that week can I decide which words would be best for the following week.
      🙂
      Mr. Rongcal
