homework mondays thursdays

* Students will be assigned homework nearly every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday

-- Math almost every day

-- Reading = at least 30 minutes every night and students need to keep up A.R. goals

-- Spelling = a new list and activity sheet almost every week (sometimes we do something else)

-- Writing once in a while, probably finishing something we started in class

-- Science and Social Studies once in a while, depending on the subject

-- DreamBox on computer … some every day, if you have Internet connection

* Please check your child’s work and initial their Planner every night.

* Students who do their homework are rewarded each month with raffle coupons.

  • * Students may get a Homework Pass to skip one assignment on a particular night.
  • * Getting books with audio CD at the public library or download books on your Kindle can help students
  • raise their AR reading level.
  • Work is to be turned in as soon as possible. Late work accepted until a week after the student comes back.
  • Missed work will be available on or before absence. Please pick it up for your child so he or she can stay current with the class, have them ask me to give it to them before they leave, or have a classmate bring it to them.
  • Students should stay up with their work, so they’ll be ready for any tests when they return.
  • Of course, there will always be exceptions

Education is a partnership between teachers, parents, and children.

Lets work together to:

  • Reserve a quiet place and a routine time for homework each day and check that it is completed.
  • Help students become independent learners and to take responsibility for themselves. (This is a key goal for fifth graders.)
  • Help promote problem solving.
  • Contact me immediately if you have any concerns or questions
