Homework is an important part of your child's academic program in school. I
encourage you to use it as a time to discuss with your child what was done
and learned in school that day. Let me stress that I LOVE WHEN PARENTS HELP
THEIR CHILDREN WITH HOMEWORK!!! :) It gives you the parent a chance to see
first hand the many different things your child is learning in school.
I will assign homework Monday through Thursday, and most nights there will be
reading, grammar, spelling, and some nights even some kind of writing. My
homework is primarily a review or extension of what was taught in class, usually very simple, and
definitely should not take more than 30 minutes or so to complete.
There will not be any homework on Fridays! You need time to go be a family!
Enjoy your weekend! :)
We will usually check homework together in class. I find that if students
see their own mistakes, they learn from them immediately. I will, sometimes,
want to check a particular assignment myself. When I do that, I will use
a "check plus" if the work was exceptional, a "check" if the work was
satisfactory, and a "check minus" if the work was poor and could have been
In addition to my homework assignments, there will also be various homework
assignments from other teachers as well. Please check your child's
assignment pad daily to be sure they are completing all assigned work!
