• .homework Your child will receive homework most nights. We try to assign homework that will take a reasonable amount of time for a first grader (10-15 min.). It is a good time to establish homework routines and habits.   Students should think about their homework and make sure that it is checked over and done neatly.  Check homework with your child and ask them how they figured out a math problem or how they figured out how to spell a word. In addition to written homework, your child should be reading at least 10 minutes every day. Please take time to read with your child and discuss what you are reading. Ask questions about the characters and plot to make sure your child is following a story. Thanks for helping to reinforce what we do in class.
