General Comments About Homework

In general,  I  send homework near the beginning of the week (Monday or Tuesday) and ask that it be returned on Fridays. If an extension is needed just jot me a note in the agenda so that I know you will send it in the following week and I will try to ask for it then.


Grade 3 Homework may include:
Math and/or Language activities that involve practice of concepts and skills and/or games that reinforce learning.  Students will have been introduced to concepts before receiving practice activities including those concepts.
A practice activity may include manipulatives or other representations, a game, a specific website activity or a paper/pencil task. 

Reading
 
Read 15-20 minutes each evening. If reading every evening presents a challenge, set a realistic goal that works for you.

Reading is one of the most important ways you can support your child's learning.  In these early years in school children are building upon their reading skills, practicing a variety of reading strategies, developing reading comprehension, fluency, and reading preferences.  When children begin to express preferences and make their own reading selections or choices, they are also developing independence and confidence as readers.  It is important for children to experience reading in different contexts and for different purposes.  Over time, these components come together and children move from 'learning to read' to 'reading to learn'.  Reading for pleasure leads the way in a child's journey to becoming a lifelong reader and learner.  Let them take you on their journey. Making your shared reading times a relaxing and pleasurable activity is a priority.  Establish a routine, get comfortable, and read.  As you read together, be open to your child's comments, invite discussion, and encourage questions.  These discussioins develop and demonstrate their comprehension and engagement.
