Homework is given to practice and review new concepts and skills. Students should be able to complete the assignments in a reasonable amount of time and for the most part independently. Please contact me if your child is having difficulty. Homework should not cause your child any unnecessary stress but just reinforce what was taught each day.
What to expect….
Math, spelling and/or reading homework will be given Monday-Thursday and will be due the next day. Math homework will usually be a worksheet(s). At times, longer assignments in writing, science or social studies will be given.
Fifth grade students are expected to read age appropriate books for 20-30 minutes every day. I ask that parents sign their child’s assignment pad once reading and homework is completed.
