First Grade Homework

Homework in first grade is intended to help our students learn the 3 R’s:

Responsibility: Turning in homework on time when it is due.

Routine: Having a set time to do homework each night.

Reinforcement: Practicing skills that have been taught in class.


*Reading: You should be spending 15 minutes reading every night with your child. Also practice High Fluency Words to reinforce recognition of these words in their reading and writing.

*Math: Follow the pacing guide for math concepts practice.

*Writing: Choose one writing prompt a week for your child to complete.

Eagle Hour - What is it?

EAGLE HOUR - Reading Process Grades 1-2

Templeton Elementary School is so proud to continue our Eagle Hour curriculum planning and delivery process for every student grades 1 and 2.  Eagle Hour is a PROCESS by which we assess our students and then place them in a classroom within their grade level for reading and literacy for one hour a day, four days a week.  TES has been and continues to receive thorough training for Eagle Hour, and we are dedicated to deliver differentiated literacy instruction that addresses the needs of every child on such a consistent basis.  This is research based and being done in over 300 schools.  This reading process will begin in mid September this year.

Each child is taught at his or her instructional level and advanced accordingly.  Lessons and curriculum are planned collaboratively, on a weekly basis by the whole grade level team.  

TES Eagle Hour Passion Statement:

"With clear purpose, collaboration, and as supported lifelong learners, we, at Templeton Elementary School will not rest until all of our students participate in leveled, targeted, and engaging instruction that advances literacy and fosters a love of learning."
