Homework will only be assigned as needed, when students need more time to complete classwork or larger projects, or when additional practice will benefit students’ understanding. Homework is not “one size fits all”; when it is given, homework will be individualized for each student’s needs.
I do encourage my students to read daily at home. Reading time can be with a parent, sibling, or alone. Reading materials should be self-selected to fit each student's interest and ability. Picture books, novels, magazines, graphic novels, cookbooks, and online articles are all examples of appropriate options. The goal is for students to read for their own pleasure/knowledge and to gain additional reading practice in a comfortable environment.
Please encourage your child to build, dream, imagine, draw, explore, invent, and play as much as possible. Enjoy your time together as a family!
