Homework is assigned every day except Friday. All
assignments will be posted on the board. Homework is
generally in the academic areas of math and spelling.
Students are also required to read at least 15-20 minutes.
Please initial your child's daily planner once they have read at
home. I will put a stamp by your initials to indicate I have
seen that your child did his/her reading. Students are responsible for writing down assignments and
returning the completed work the following day. A daily
planner, courtesy of the PTA, will be given to everyone.
Children will also be given a homework folder to keep
assignments and notices in. Please be sure you check your
child's folder each day. If a student forgets an assignment or
an unexpected emergency arises, an "Oops Sheet" will be
filled out and signed by the teacher, the student and parents.
The completed assignment will be returned the next day,
along with the signed sheet. If it is not returned, the student
will need to make up the missed assignment during part of
recess. Homework reinforces skills taught in class. It also helps to
foster a sense of responsibility. However, daily homework, in
cluding reading, should not take longer than 30-40 minutes
total to complete. If your child is having any difficulty, please
let me know.
