             Every night, the children will bring home their Baggie Books.  They will have their books to read based on their own reading in class weekly.  They will also receive a flashcard for each sight word as it is introduced in class.  Please take a few minutes each night to review and practice these words.  Math homework will also be sent home daily.  If your child is having any difficulty completing the required homework, please let us know.
