Coin Identifying and Counting: We have begun to learn the names and values of the penny, dime, and nickel.  Many children need practice with this, please find opportunities to practice with your child. It can be very incidental: find a coin in the car or couch?  ask your child what it is.  buying something from the vending machine?  ask your child about the coins you put in.  tooth fairy visiting?  she could bring coins and your child could trade you for dollars.
  
 
 

 

Reading:  

Reading homework includes reading a book at their level on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday night.  Friday is a special reading homework night! Children will select a book from the classroom that they would like an adult at home to read to them.  Although the children are working hard to develop their own reading skills it is still important for them to hear good reading modeled for them.  This is also a special time to cuddle and enjoy reading with your child.  Spelling words should also be practiced each day.  Remember the Friday test will include two mystery words not on the list but words that follow the spelling rule for the week.
