Reading at least 20 minutes
(practice fluency, answer comprehension questions - who, what, where, when, why, how..., summarize what was just read, predict). Reading slip needs to be signed off daily. If your child is not able to read that evening he/she can still make-up those minutes by going to "Breakfast Club" in Room 106 from 7:20-7:45 AM (Tues. - Fri.) to read and get signed off. By the end of the second grade school year, students should be reading at a fluency rate of at least 90 words per minute. Practice reading vocabulary list (if provided).
Study spelling words
for Friday test (give pretest and work only on words the child has trouble with). I have a link to a website called Spelling City on my links page that offers games to help students study as well. Other at home activities to reinforce spelling words include looking them up in the dictionary, putting them in ABC order, using them in sentences, and list their rhyming words .
