Math Homework Expectations
First Grade students will be receiving practice papers from our Homework/Remembering booklets from Math Expressions. These are intended to be practice and review, as they are an extension from what was taught during day. Though these practice papers may come home 3 nights a week (this number may change depending on the unit), only 1 of them will need to be returned to school. That paper will have an H on the front. Parents are encouraged to check their child’s work and have a “math talk” about the concepts. This is NOT a part of the child’s math grade.  

Reading Homework Expectations
First Grade students should read for fifteen minutes each day. The purpose of reading at home is to practice the reading strategies taught in class, develop fluency, and foster a love of reading. This is NOT a part of the child’s reading grade.
