There will generally be homework Monday through Thursday in spelling/phonics, reading and math. Homework will be on my teacher web page under ‘Homework’ and on Monday your child will receive a planner for the week with the homework assignments and reminders.
The homework assigned each week is usually:
- Spelling: A fundations packet will be given every Monday or the first day of the school week. Students should practice the weekly spelling words, as there will be a spelling/phonics check-up or unit test on Fridays. There are supplementary activities which support and practice lessons taught in class to be used at your discretion.
- Math: There will usually be one sheet assigned each day Monday through Thursday, which is to be returned the following school day. Please practice math facts to 20.
- Reading: A reading log will be given on Monday or the first day of school that week and due on Friday. The reading log is a review of what your child has been learning in school. Your child should read or be read to at home for at least 20 minutes a day (Monday-Thursday). A new reading log will be given each Monday.
Occasionally, there will be homework, projects, and tests to study for, so be sure to check my teacher web page for postings. Please encourage independence when it comes to homework by being available to support your child and helping only when needed.
Homework should not take more than twenty minutes nightly (not including reading). If your child is struggling, please send in a note, and they will be provided with help the next day. Thank you!
