    * Homework will be individualized for each student.  Whatever work they did not finish in class will be sent home in a clear plastic folder to be completed and collected the next day. 

    If you log on to connected.com, there are digital exercises that they can play related to the skills we were learning in our story.

    Please use any other links on my teacher site to play other digital games for skills practice.

    Homework! Homework! Homework! 

     

    It is the responsibility of the student to be aware of all homework.  Homework is individualized for each student.  Homework will be sent home in a clear folder that says "Homework Folder" with the students' name on it.

    Homework will be given when a student hasn't completed their in-class assignments. When they have spelling words, or vocabulary words to study for the weekly test, they will be given the words on Monday.  Do not wait until Thursday to study.  Homework will vary each week except for the week of PSSA's and before a holiday. There will be no homework at that time.  If they have homework, it will be placed in the folder for your child and handed to them before they leave for the day. 

    Reading:  Each student may be given homework from the Reading Series and will have spelling words or vocabulary words, weekly to study for which they will be tested.  Spelling words will be stapled into their agenda.  Another copy of the list will be in the folder.  Keep this list home to study from.  PLEASE check nightly.  Each student has a 20 minute reading assignment every night!  They can choose their own book or if your child does not have any books at home, please let us know and I can lend them one.  Also, please choose a book that they can read and is appropriate.  They should read for 20 minutes a night to an adult.  If your child is reading for another class  please let me know, as I will accept that as my homework as well.  They do not have to do double reading.  Homework will count toward the students' final grade each quarter.

     If you or your child does not know how to complete the assignment, please write me a note.  Do not leave it blank or I will assume they just didn't do it because they didn't want to.

     

    On Monday, every week, each student will have a spelling study sheet of the current week's Spelling Words, or Vocabulary cards in their homework folder.  Spelling and /or vocabulary should be practiced nightly in order for your child to receive a passing score on Friday's test. ******DO NOT allow them to wait until the day before the test to practice the spelling or vocabulary words.  

    If you are looking for ideas to write and read about, check it out www.rif.org/readingplanet.  They can also access their ALEKS account.

    All students will be given multiplication flash cards to study from.  They are encouraged to practice them nightly.

    I look forward to working with you and together we can  look forward to a lot of progress.

    Have a great day.
