The students will have a homework notebook to keep you updated on
their homework. This homework notebook needs to be looked at and
signed by a parent every night.
There will be math homework usually every night. Every math lesson
has a set of 30 problems that will reinforce concepts taught that day
and from previous lessons. Students need to check their work and make
sure they labeled their answers. Unlabeled answers are marked as incorrect.
The students will need to present a current event to the class once
every twelve days. Our school rotates on a six day cycle and students
present on every other cycle - so the kids are either on the BLACK
rotation or the WHITE rotation. Please ask your child what day they
present. The students need to cover the main ideas of the news story
(who is it about, what happened, where did it happen, when did it
happen, why or how did it happen). They can get stories from the TV news,
newspapers, magazines, internet, etc. Please avoid doing presentations
on violent crimes or stories that are improper for children.
A spelling sheet will go home every Monday and is due on Wednesdays.
Geography will go home every Tuesday and is due on Thursdays. The
students are allowed to use atlases, maps, dictionaries, encyclopedias
or any other reference material to answer the questions.
Students should also be reading at home and filling out their reading
logs. I usually like the students to read a minimum of 20 minutes a
night. This can be reading for fun or for school.
They will occasionally have homework in other areas as well, but it will
be listed in their homework notebook.
