Homework


Weekly homework will consist of nightly reading Monday through Thursday (minimum of 15-20 minutes recommended), spelling priority word list and Everyday Math Homelinks.  Occasionally, the children will have to complete a project or assignment related to a theme we are studying.

Please check your child’s “Take Home” folder each night.  This will have any homework, notes, or school information in it.  We pack these folders together each day.  The children should show them to you each night and bring them back to school the following day.

*Please note that Discovery math and the vocabulary challenge are optional extensions that you may feel are appropriate for your child.  These will be sent home each Friday in your child’s Friday Folder.

Friday Folders
Each child has a Friday Folder.  If a homework assignment is not turned in on time, I will make a note in the folder on the calendar inside.  Also, I will make a note about any behavior issue that needs to be brought to your attention.  If your child’s folder does not need to be written in by me during the week, a sticker will be placed on their calendar.  Some work samples will also be sent home to give you a sense of your child’s academic progress.  Please sign your child’s folder on the line provided at the end of the week, and feel free to write any questions or comments in the space provided.  I will check the folders on Monday and respond to any of your questions or concerns via e-mail, the phone, or in writing.  I hope the folder helps keep the communication between school and home open.
