* Please be sure that your child is READING with an adult ALOUD (talking as they read) for at least 20 minutes everyday, even on the weekends. This is part of their DAILY homework assignment. They are responsible for writing down the book they read and a short summary in their own words (3 sentences for ALL students). They can read in their native languages (such as Korean or Chinese, etc.) but they must write about their books in English to summarize.
* SPELLING is due EVERY MONDAY - They should be writing their words daily 3 times and send all work in their spelling notebooks on Mondays. You can make it fun for them by doing it in different colors, alphabetical order, looking up words they don't know in the dictionary, etc.
* The Blue Folders are a means of communication and should be checked DAILY by parents. My assistant Ms. Reta will be checking homework and filing it on a daily basis. Please make sure you pull out ALL papers in the HOME section and keep it at home. I will contact parents if your child is not completing the daily homework by email.
* Emergency Lesson plans will be on the Moodle for you and your child to work together only if there is bad weather this year. RED RAIN DAYS are still considered school days AT HOME.
