Homework is intended to be a meaningful extension of concepts learned in class. Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday and the agenda should be signed on those nights. Students will be required to do 20 minutes of reading each night for the first quarter, 30 minutes for the second quarter and 40 minutes for the third and fourth quarters. Research has proven that the very best way to become a better reader is to read! In addition to reading, homework may include problems from math and spelling/vocabulary work. Students are expected to complete all of their homework each night. Providing a set time and quiet place for uninterrupted homework completion makes this possible. Students should be able to complete nightly homework with little or no help. Please make sure to look at the homework listed in the agenda and sign the agenda each night. This is your way to be aware of your child’s responsibilities. Please contact me if your child is struggling with his/her homework.
