First Grade Homework
First Grade students will receive monthly homework calendars.
These calendars (along with the corresponding homework spiral
notebook) are in their “To & From” folders. Each day (Monday-
Thursday) there will be an assignment for the students to complete,
along with their nightly 15 minutes of reading. Some assignments are
written while others are activities for your child to do orally or with
materials at home. All written assignments should be completed inside
their homework notebook or if there is a sheet attached to the
calendar it should be completed on that. Please help your child
complete the work each night and return their Homework Notebook
every Friday, so that I can check the week’s work. Students will bring
their Notebooks home on Friday.
I realize that it is going to be a challenge for the students to be
organized in their notebook. I will try my part to assist them on
Fridays before the homework folder goes home. We’ll date each page
for the week’s work. You may need to help them keep their work
looking neat. I do not expect them to be able to write on the lines of
the paper. Many of the students are not developmentally ready to
use small lines.
Additionally, students should be reading or listening to an adult
read at least 15 minutes every day. Please initial the bottom corner
of the calendar each day the student reads, so that I know that it
