I generally assign homework Monday-Thursday. If homework is given over the weekend it is either because work was not completed during the week or you may have a project that needs extra time to be completed. A good guideline is about 40 minutes of homework and 20 minutes of reading a book/magazine of your choosing. I expect all students to read 20 minutes every night of the week, even weekends.
Most assignments are due the day after assigned. Exceptions will be noted in assignment notebook or on the assignment. 10% will be deducted from the assignment grade for each day the assignment is late. Projects are due on the due date as you will have plenty of notice of when projects are due. If you are absent on a project due date or presentation day, the project is due the day you return and you will present the day you return.
If you are absent due to being ill, you have as many days as you are absent to make up the assignments. If you are absent due to illness, please feel free to call the school or email me if you want your homework available for pick up so you do not get behind in homework/classwork. Any "in class assignments" will need to be completed during the school day and perhaps during recess.
