If you are using the Journeys curriculum, this product is for you! It was designed as rigorous homework to be compatible with the Journeys curriculum for your first grade students. Created in black and white, it saves your valuable colored ink. Phonics, spelling, vocabulary, sight words, and reading are included in only one sheet for students to complete each day. The students have homework Monday through Thursday nights, giving them the weekend off. The product reinforces what you are teaching that week and uses the oral vocabulary taught in the lesson which is more rigorous than the selection vocabulary. Simply copy each page Monday through Thursday with the spelling practice page on the back each day.
For the first week that you are sending homework, go over the page each afternoon before you send the page home that night. Encourage the parents to sit with their child as the homework is being completed. Students may need their parent to read a portion of the homework to them.
An introductory letter was included to assist the parents in understanding their child’s homework expectations.
