1-minute Reading Fluency
Second graders will have reading fluency homework each week. You may juggle the nights based on your schedule but typically:
Monday night: read the entire selection with your child. Then time them for one minute. Parents write the number of words read and add your signature/initials.
Tuesday and Wednesday nights: time your child for 1 minute, write the number of words read and initial.
Thursday night: Reread entire selection and answer comprehension questions on the back
Friday: Bring to school and turn in.
Second graders will be writing down their homework each afternoon and bringing home their planner. Please help them look at their planner each night to check and be sure they have complete all of their homework.
Every afternoon, second graders write down their homework and gather the materials they will need. This process takes 15-20 minutes. If your child needs to leave early (before 2:30) please let me know ahead of time, so that they can get their homework organized early.
Looking Ahead: NEXT week:
Monday, Sept 3: Labor Day. No School
Thursday, Sept 6: Back to School Night
