  • Dear Families,

    Please support your child at home to help them problem solve when doing homework or if your child lets you know they're struggling with a concept. Utilizing online sites is a great way to reinforce skills learned in school. 

    Also, it is imperative that your child is fluent with Multiplication facts up to 12 times tables. The topics moving forward, such as Fractions and Division,  requires the students to have mastery of their facts. Utilizing online sites or just plain old-fashion flashcards are great resources for your child to practice daily. 

     If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please feel free to email me or contact me by phone. I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. I look forward to a wonderful and rewarding year! 


    • Homework is usually assigned M-Th unless otherwise noted.  
    • (abbreviations to know:  worksheet: WS,  homework: HW,  Words Their Way: WTW)
    • Planner: please check and have a parent sign the planner daily
    •  Your child should read 20 minutes each day. Encourage them to continue to read their current book until they finish it.  
    • Test Folder:  A folder will come home with graded work a few times a month. Please review the work, sign the cover sheet after reviewing the work and then return all the work on the "Return" side. 
    • Toys are not encouraged to be brought to school unless otherwise directed. This can distract the students from learning.
    • Any Online Site that we use in class, the username and password information will be written in your child's Planner in the "notes" section.


    The students will have recess every day. Recess may be outside, so appropriate outerwear and shoes are recommended. 


    Parents, when the students are off from school, there are many things your child could do to help them progress and learn. Some great activities would be playing math games on the computer such as Prodigy, play Multiplication War, go on Spelling City to work on the current word list, and of course, read a good book. Story writing or taking notes on their favorite topic in a nonfiction book or article is another way to keep them learning at home. I certainly appreciate all the support you do at home.
