Everyone will have a homework folder that will be taken home daily along with an agenda. Thirty to sixty minutes of homework can be expected on a nightly basis. A parent/guardian must sign the agenda once homework has been completed. This signature indicates that your parent/guardian has seen your completed homework (including your reading).
Homework Schedule: (This is subject to change, but gives an idea of what to expect).
Monday through Thursday - 30 minutes of reading
10 - 30 minutes of math reinforcement
(possible) Social Studies / Science
Most Fridays there will be no homework!
Reading: During the 30 minutes of reading please be sure your student is in a quiet spot where they can get "in the zone" and really enjoy the book they're reading. They need to have an uninterrupted period of time to get the most out of their book. This is the most important part of their homework!
Math: Students will be given homework on the concept they worked on in class that day. They will be given homework Monday through Thursday.
Spelling: I believe strongly that students need to learn to be good spellers. To do this I think they need to learn the spelling rules and why words are put together the way they are. We will work on this in class, and they will have spelling homework.
