    March Newsletter
    Mrs. Axile's Class
    Dear Families,
    The month of March is an exciting one for your child. We have recently celebrated Literacy Night which was a fun event. It was great to see so many of you in attendance! Nevada Reading Week was also a success, as many students were enthusiastic about reading and enjoyed participating in school activities.
    I want to remind all families that homework is a requirement, even for first grade. The homework assigned is very basic and should not be problematic for your child. Since the homework expectation increases each year with his/her new grade level, it is crucial that good habits are established now. Homework helps to reinforce concepts and skills that have already been taught in the classroom. The continued practice at home helps to solidify those skills. Continued non-return of homework can have a negative impact on your child's study practices. Please review his/her homework on a nightly basis to insure completion. Also, reading logs should now be completed by your child. It is good practice for him/her to copy the title of the books that he/she is reading, as this helps him/her to identify book features that are being taught in class such as title, author, etc.
    We have been working hard on our math facts and learning how to compose and decompose tens. We will now be exploring geometry. Please ask your child to read to you nightly in order to practice fluency and decoding skills.

    Mrs. Axile
