In addition, students will be assigned brief homework practice from our new math program, Envisions. This homework will provide your child additional practice and review of the skills we've learned in class. Your child will receive a username and a password which allows you and your child to access the many resources available online. Also, check out the free app, Bouncepages! You can scan homework pages and access a video tutorial to help your child review the skills we learned for each assignment!
Spelling Homework-Students will receive a Spelling Tic-Tac-Toe homework sheet on Mondays. Three activities must be completed and initialed by Friday. Please return any completed work with the homework sheet. Below are links to our homework sheets. If your child misplaces his/hers, you may print a new one. It DOES NOT matter which one you use; I just want students to practice their words!
