Team Expectations

  • Kindergarten Homework Policy

    Math:

    • Check your child’s weekly calendar and binder for interactive math activities.

    Reading:

    • Students need a total of 20 minutes of reading each evening.
    • Of those 20 minutes, some can be the student reading to the family and some can be the family reading to the student.
    • Students need to read their solo stories or one page of their most recent magazine every evening.
    • Families must initial the solo stories or magazines to show what was read.

     

    Helpful Hints:

    • Sit beside your child while they are completing their homework.
    • Don’t just tell your child the answers, ask them what they think and guide them to the answer (example: What do you think that word might be? How could we figure out which group of buttons has the most?).
    • Make it a routine! If you try to do homework the same time (example: after/before dinner) then you probably won’t forget about it!
    • On long weekends or breaks from school, have your child reread some of the older solo stories or magazines for extra fluency practice.
