Homework

Daily Take Home Folders: Your child will be bringing a durable red or blue plastic communication folder home from school daily. This folder is a great means of communication. All daily work, homework, messages from school, and teacher notes will be included. This is where you can send notes to me, return forms and homework. Please help your child to empty the folder routinely and complete homework every night. Notes from me will be in the front pocket. Reading Club forms will also be kept in this folder (formally called 100 Book Club).

Reading:

Students should read five nights a week for 20 minutes or longer.  A spiral notebook to document their thinking or reading strategy while reading is a must in class; however, their choice for homework.

Math:

Math homework is sent home periodically.

Planner:

Students have a planner in which we write our learning targets, new vocabulary, and assignments due for each day. A parent signature is required once weekly, usually on Thursdays. I encourage students to bring home both their planners and communication folders on a daily basis.

Science/Social Studies/Writing:

As skills are learned in class, assignments to compliment, extend, and or practice will be given.

NOTE: STUDENTS IN BAND OR ORCHASTRA ARE EXPECTED TO COMPLETE MISSED CLASS WORK AT HOME.
