Homework is important as an aid in helping students make the most of their learning and growth.  It is designed to reinforce skills already learned, to extend concepts, to teach responsibility, and to develop positive study habits. 


Because I personally understand the schedules of today’s family, homework in my classroom will NEVER be busy work. 

Homework in 5th Grade consists of a weekly comprehension passage and a nightly math assignment, that reinforces concepts taught in class each day.
