Homework- Homework is an important part of our educational process.  It serves to reinforce concepts learned and helps the students become responsible.  First grade teachers typically assign homework during the week.  In addition, children are also encouraged to read nightly.  *15 minutes a night is the expected amount of homework for Grade 1 students.We have homework Monday through Thursday.
Flashcards- Students are tested every week on their word lists. I have about 28 different word lists. Students go at their own pace and are required to read each word on their list before moving on to the next one. It is not unusual for a student to spend more than one week on a list.
Sight Words- First graders are expected to master 188 High Frequency Words.
