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.
Normally, I will assign a packet on Monday that is due on Friday. That packet will include a story to
read with multiple choice comprehension questions and some sort of open ended question. There will
also be a grammar skill page included in that packet. In addition, there will be spelling tic tac toe that
needs to be completed each week. There will also be a study island topic assigned each week. Finally,
students are required to keep and hand in a reading log each week. Since homework is given weekly
instead of daily, students will need to use good time management skills to make sure they are staying
current with all assignments. Check your child's assignment pad each night to be sure they are up to
date with the week's assignments.
There will not be any homework on Fridays! You need time to go be a family!
Enjoy your weekend! :)
In addition to my homework assignments, there will also be homework
assignments from other teachers as well. Mrs. Gammoh of course, but there is often world language
and/or music homework each week. Please check your child's assignment pad daily to be sure they are
completing all assigned work!
