Each child will have a folder that goes home only on Monday. In the folder will be a homework packet and a take home book. These are to be completed throughout the week and returned with the folder by Friday. Your child does not need to do the entire packet in one night. Have them do a page or two each night. Also, study the vocabulary words and spelling words each night. Study the spelling words in the car or write them with chalk or markers! A first grader should spend about 20-30 minutes a night on homework. Homework will begin the second week of school.
