Dear Parents,

    We will start homework this week.   Homework folders will go out each Monday and be returned  that Friday.                                                                                                                                                                                                              There is a Spelling Contract in the folder with the information on how to use it.  Our class will also be working on handwriting skills.  A handwriting sheet containing your child’s spelling words will be included as extra practice each week.  Spelling words will also be uploaded to SpellingCity.com for study and practice.                                                                                                        

    There is a phonics and vocabulary sheet for this week’s skills included as extra practice for your child at home.  I will be sending a sheet like every week, so you can be aware of the skills for the week.

    The Math assignment will be the Home Links papers for the material we have been working on during the week.  Please complete and return it in the Homework Folder.

    At Home Reading Program – We ask that your child read the weekly story every night to someone at home and then answer some questions about the story.  Please keep the question sheet at home and use with each story. The reading book needs to be returned to school each day.

    I have a webpage on the Marlowe Elementary Website.  You can access my site by going to the Marlowe Elementary School page and click on Teachers.  There is an alphabetical list of teachers and if you click on my name, it will take you to the site.  I have listed several links to practice websites, homework, the Schoology system, Spelling City, and the Scholastic Reader brochure.  The homework page is current each week and lists the spelling and vocabulary words for that week.  I will also post any information that may be important for the coming week.  If you have any questions, please feel to contact me at mrecher@k12.wv.us or call the school at 304-274-2291 and leave me a message.

    Thank you, Mrs. Recher
