100 Sight Words
Each first grader needs to learn 100 Sight Words by the end of the year. Most of these words will be our Rainbow Words this year. However, you can get a list of all 100 words on start working on them with your child. Here is the link to the page on our website where you can find these words: http://www.murrieta.k12.ca.us/Page/782. All children will be tested on their 100 words at the end of September in preparation for 1st Quarter Progress Reports and Parent Conferences.
The district has purchased a fun reading program for the kids to use at home. It is called Raz-Kids. There is a link below for your convenience. Please let me know if you have any questions about the program. I can't wait to see which of my Dunaway Darlings start rockin' on Raz Kids! :)

Life Skills Homework
Work with your child every night on tying their own shoelaces. In these busy times, and with the invention of Velcro, we tend to forget to teach our children this important skill. Children demonstrating mastery of this will sign our special poster and get to RACE Mrs. Dunaway one day soon on the playground. ;)
Special Homework Assignment
Help your child memorize their nine digit student Username and Password stapled into their folder. They will use it every day in the computer lab. We will make a BIG DEAL when kids show us they have memorized this! :) They can also use that nine digit student number when they buy a lunch in the cafeteria. :)
Help your child practice orally counting to 60. Show them the numbers 1 - 60 out of order - See if they know the difference between 15 and 51, 31 and 13, etc. Once they master 1 - 60, move on to 1 - 120! :) Email me when they can count to 120 and I will test them at school. :)
