Every night for homework students will have a math practice sheet to reinforce concepts learned that day. They will also need to read and log about what they have read. We will start the year for reading for 20 minutes. Occasionally there will be additional homework.
Students are given new spelling words every two weeks and are responsible for completing a spelling contract by the end of the two weeks. The first week, students will concentrate on sorting their words. The second week, they will concentrate on defintions and using the words in correct context. They will be given time in class to work on these contracts. However, anything that is not finished will need to be finished for homework the night before it's due.
