Students are expected to read for 30 minutes each night. In addition to silent reading, they will receive 1-2 pages of math homework each week. The due date for math will be Friday. All students are aware that if they need help on the homework, they can ask for it at any point during the week. *Friday morning is not an acceptable time to ask for help.

At some point this fall, your child will be involved in a literature circle with other classmates where they will partake in deep discussion about a shared book. They will all have different roles, weekly, to prompt their discussion. Class time will be available to complete the work, although on some occasions, they may need to bring their work home to make sure it’s completed. Literature circles will continue throughout the year.

*Homework and all take-home papers will come home in their blue Lyndale Eagle folder.
