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. Occasionally there will be additional homework.
We are now reading for 25 minutes. Students should be writing while they are reading! Encourage them to read with writing in mind. :)
There is no homework on weekends.
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 definitions 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.
There is a total of 9 activities that need to be complete by test time.
