Our homework program will consist of a few different parts. All of the homework will go home on
Monday. It can be turned in Friday, or on Monday, if you need the weekend to complete it. Please try to
bring kits in on Friday, so that I can have them ready for Monday's students. We will have spelling
quizzes on Friday. Homework kits (or bags) will come home about once a month. When your child has
a kit, he/she does not need to complete the math and writing homework. He/she will still be tested on
the spelling words, however.
The components of homework in our class are described below:
Spelling - We have 3 different spelling lists in order to meet the needs of different levels. The bonus
words can be studied for further practice and challenge. Spelling quizzes are on Fridays.
Math - Math will be sent that reviews skills learned in class, or practices new skills. If your child needs
an extra challenge, Accelerated Math will be sent. Need more? I also recommend the IXL website, for
Literacy Bags and Kits - Once a month your child will receive a homework kit. The instructions are
in the bags. Let me know if anything is missing from the kit, or help replenish if you have something
handy. Please put your child's work in the communication folder and send the kit back on Friday.
Home Writing Journal - A journal will be sent home on Mondays. Please have your child write at least
two times a week. Instructions are in the front of the journal.
Nightly Reading - Please read with your child for 15-20 minutes a night. A log is included.
Thank you for helping your child return homework on time!
