Purpose: to provide guided practice on an instructed lesson, and to develop responsibility in using independent time wisely.
Time is given in class to complete daily assignments. Students are expected to finish any incomplete assignment as homework, and return it the next school day.
Purpose: to provide independent practice on a skill previously taught; to develop individual student responsibility and organizational skills; to develop creativity; and to enhance family involvement.
Students will be assigned homework 3-4 days each week. This is in addition to any incomplete class assignments that need to be finished at home. Daily homework is expected to be completed and returned the following day. Often longer "projects" will be assigned. A longer time frame will be given for those.
Your child should read for at least 20 minutes Monday-Thursday. They may choose their own reading material.
Student Planners: Each student will receive a daily planner for the school year and will be expected to fill in the planner with daily assignments. Please check and sign your child's planner daily.
