Star Homework

What is Star Homework?

Star Homework is weekly skill practice with activities for students to complete each night. Unfinished class work or extra skill practice may also be sent home as needed.

What does a student do to earn stars?

1★= read for 15+ minutes and practice spelling words

2★=read for 15+ minutes and practice spelling words and super speed math or 10 minutes of math practice on IXL.com

3★=read for 15+ minutes and practice spelling words, super speed math or 10 minutes of math practice on IXL.com and super speed reading

What happens the next day? Do they turn anything in?

When students enter the classroom each morning, they should unpack their Take Home Binder and put it into the Binder Bin. I will check the Star Homework page for circled stars and parent initials. Stars will be recorded on a chart.

What do students earn?

On Friday, we will count up all of the stars we have earned for the week and see if we met our class goal. If so, students earn a class reward. We will also look to see if we met or beat the previous week's total. If we did, it's Sticker Time!

What is Super Speed Math?

You will need: clock w/second hand or timer and someone to check your work

  • Students use the sheet of math facts to orally read and answer as many problems as they can in 1 minute. Homework partner should follow along to check and give answers when necessary. Before beginning they should set a goal then mark number of problems completed correctly on the star homework sheet.

    What is Super Speed Reading?

    You will need: clock w/second hand or timer and someone to check your reading

  • Students should begin with level 1 on the Super Speed Reading sheet. As the student reads, the homework partner should follow along and fix any mistakes. Mark your ending level on the Star Homework sheet. The next time you do Super Speed Reading, you may start with the beginning of the level that you ended with the day before as long as you had all of the words correct in all of the previous levels.
