Homework will be assigned on Monday.  Assignments will always be due on FRIDAY but your child has the option of completing it and turning it in before that time as well. 
        Beginning in September, students will take home a book on his/her independent reading level in a book bag for use this year. This helps protect our books.  At the end of the year, students will return the reading bag.  Your child should read the book twice during the week.  Once should be for fluency and the second should be for comprehension.  Questions will be sent home later for comprehension practice.  Write the name of the book in your child's planner at the bottom of the page.  Students have been informed to return the book and pick out a new one each week.  Your child should be reading Monday through Thursday nights.  They are welcome to choose a new book whenever they need one.
         We will begin spelling homework in September.  I will provide you with ideas where your child can practice his/her words for the test each Friday.
