Homework Practice Sheets

Instant Words lists will go home every few weeks.  These words have been taught and practiced in class, so the lists are a support to further master the high-frequency words.


Structural Passages targeting common prefixes and suffixes will be going home every few weeks.  These passages have also been taught, practiced, and studied in class.  Students will benefit from quick, nightly oral readings focusing on a fluent and nuanced reading of the passage.  The goal is for their reading to approximate the intonation and rhythm of  their normal speech.
