Here are the activities that your child should complete the first week of homework.
Word Sort: Have your child cut out the words and mix them up. Remind your child to sort the words into categories just like we did in class. There will be a topper (in bold) at the top of each category. Your child should read each word aloud as they sort.

Written Sort: Have your child sort their words into their categories and write them down on paper.

Blind Sort: Lay down the topper word for each category and read the rest of the words aloud to your child. Your child must point to the correct category under which the word would go without seeing it. Lay it down and let your child move it if he or she is wrong. Repeat the process if your child makes more than one error.

Speed Sort: Have your child time themselves as they complete their sort. Record the time and have them sort again and try to beat their time.

Here is a menu of activities that your child can use to practice the words during the second week. Try to choose different activities weekly so that there is more variety when practicing.
