Summer Homework for Students entering 1st Grade


You are being assigned the below homework to reinforce skills you have learned and to prepare you for your new grade. Be safe and have fun completing these assignments as a family. Please log onto our school website, for additional information and useful resources.

1. Math: Remember math is all around us and you should us your math skills to tell time, keep track of your spending and count all the exciting memories you make!

Here are some of the math skills to do daily over the summer:

* Count to 100 by ones and tens.

* Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence

(Example 2, 4, 6… or 5, 10, 15 … or 10, 20, 30…)

* Write numbers from 0 to 20 and represent that number with a group of objects. (with 0 representing a count of no objects).

* Practice addition with regrouping.

* Identify whether the number of object in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group. Use words such as "more of" / "less of" to describe the difference (Example 15 cars in one group and 12 blocks in another. There are more cars than blocks. There are fewer blocks than cars. )

* Play games with your child. Board games, cards games and dominoes require numerical skills to win and friendly competition reinforces family time and needed skills!

*Have your child help you cook and bake, as recipes are full of mathematical opportunities.


2. Reading- as your child’s first teacher, there is no better way to teach your child how to read than to share a love of reading. Please read with your child nightly, visit the library often. The library is offering many reading programs this summer that your child can join and receive prizes for their accomplishments. Please visit Raz-Kids. Also review the sight words your child has been given. Remember to always pack a book with you everywhere you go!


3. Writing- Please have your child keep a journal about events that they have experienced over the summer, things they have done, books they have read or just about how they feel. This teaches them to find their voice in their writing and help them foster a love of writing.


4. Vocabulary- Please work with your child on these skills as you increase their academic language by having rich discussions with them. Ask you child to talk to you about the characters, setting, and conflict in books you read. Use math words to describe things you do throughout the day (i.e. We are leaving at 1:00 pm, I drinking one cup of water). Encourage detail writing in their journal, what happened first, second, last.
