Rhodes Home/School Folders and Planners:
Please put any notes in your child’s Rhodes home/school folder and have your child check their folders nightly for notices. Any papers on the “stay at home” side of your child’s folder should be taken out and kept at home. In addition, remind your child to show you their planner nightly. This ensures that you know what your child’s daily responsibilities and homework are.
Please check in with your child each school day to see what book they are reading and initial their reading log. Reading logs are collected/checked on Fridays and passed back to students on Mondays. Students should be reading a minimum of 20 minutes per school day Monday-Thursday.
Students will generally have math homework Monday through Thursday. The homework will be a review of previously taught skills. Talk to your child about their knowledge of basic multiplication facts. Weekly review of fact families through the 10’s will be beneficial.
