Spelling: DUE ON FRIDAYS
Your child should choose 1 spelling activity for each night. A list of choices of spelling activities are attached and will be posted on the class website. They must complete four each week (unless it is a shortened week). Any further ideas for spelling activities are welcome! Students must choose a different choice each night.
Reading: READING NEEDS TO BE DONE NIGHLY BUT THE LOG IS DUE ON FRIDAYS
There will be a reading log sent home on Mondays. Students need to be reading and filling in their reading log every night. The reading is always due the following day. It is crucial to the students’ reading growth to fit it into their schedule everyday. An online version of the reading log will be available soon.
Math: DUE ON FRIDAYS
There will be 1 math page for each night of the week. It will be a review of something already covered in class or practice of a skill learned in past years.
Editing: DUE THE NEXT DAY, ALWAYS! (This one is a little bit different!)
Editing will be sent home on a nightly basis. All editing is due the following day. We will correct the editing in class, so each student needs to be prepared.
All homework should be done independently. The editing, however, will be challenging at first, and I encourage students to have conversations with parents about the editing. It will be more meaningful and it’s only a paragraph a night! All other homework should be able to be completed independently. If the homework seems to be too challenging week after week, please have your child let me know, and we can always adjust. Alternately, if your child would like or requires an extra challenge at home, please let me know.
Choice time on Fridays: Each Friday, the students earn a “choice time” in the afternoon. Choice time is earned only if students are:
1. Completing all of their homework
2. Completing all of their morning work
Please email or call me if you have any questions.
