Homework is meant to be an extension of what we do in the classroom. In first grade, the purpose of homework is to help students develop organizational skills, learn responsibility, and reinforce skills learned in school. It is also a time to involve parents in the educational process. Homework is time well spent on important skills, rather than "busy work!"
First graders are expected to spend time each night practicing their reading and sight words On Monday, there will be a homework sheet with the sight words that need to be studied and a weekly calendar. Attached to it will be a reading passage and comprehension questions. The packets are due back the following Monday.
