Homework Expectations

Homework Directions

 

  • Read every night Monday – Thursday for 30 minutes.

This can be a combination of different kinds of reading and can vary throughout the week. For example you could: read to your child for 10 minutes and your child could read silently or out loud to you for 20 minutes. Your child could read the entire 30 minutes on their own. Etc. During this time they can read their books that they bring home from school or something that you already have at home. Let them pick something they enjoy! 

  • There will be math problems that can be worked on throughout the week. You pick the days and times that work best for your family. Just turn them in by Friday.
  • Occasionally there will be another very short assignment or project to work on at home. These assignments will be listed on the homework/behavior sheet that will be in their folder daily. It may be something small that your child needs to work on specifically or it may be a fun project that the whole class is doing.
  • Please sign the space provided in the yellow folder each day to let me know that you have looked in their folder and that they have completed their assignment.
  • If your child has a lot of unfinished work throughout the day this will be sent home for homework. Please send it back in when it is completed.

 

I am hoping that because there will not be a lot of homework that you and your family will be able to: sit down and eat together, play outside, spend time talking, participate in other fun activities, and that your child will be able to go to bed early so that they are prepared for the next day.
