• Homework



    Please see the updated homework policy. Click the link below.
    **Please Note: Homework is explained in detail at Back to School Night.

    Homework will be posted weekly. I will post homework on Sunday nights for the following week.
    There are 4 boxes of homework for the week. All need to be completed and turned in on Friday. It does not matter which order the work is completed, but ideally students are to work on 1 box a night. 
    All homework will be a review of what is being taught in class. 
    In addition to nightly homework, students will need to read every night! We ask that they read 15-20 minutes. PLEASE spend time listening to your child read. Read to your child as well. You will be modeling good reading strategies such as fluency and reading with expression, as well as sharing your joy of reading.

    Homework Practice Guidelines 
    • All homework is due on Fridays. (If there is no school, it is due on Thursdays.)
    • Homework folder should be kept clean and organized. 
    • Keep all sheet protectors in the folder.
    • All written homework should be completed on blank paper and stapled together

    Please do not do all homework on one day. Students should complete 1 box each night.

    How you can help your child be successful in school...
    1. Read EVERYDAY! They can read to you or you can read to them. Either way, READ :)
    2. Stay involved and feel free to contact me anytime.
    3. Ask your child about their day in school and encourage them to talk about what they learned.
    4. Make sure your child is getting plenty of sleep and is ready for school each day.
    5. Help your child with their homework.
