Homework in 207!

    Students will have homework each night Monday through Thursday.  You will find once we get started, that assignments are quite predictable. Usually, students are asked to complete a spelling and/or reading activity along with either a math or grammar assignment.  I also ask that students spend 20 minutes nightly reading and filling out a reading log. Reading logs go home on Monday and are due each Friday. Students are asked to write a few sentences about what they have read. Several different prompts are listed on the top of the reading log to get students thinking in a different manner rather than simply summarizing what they have been reading. You will see what I mean once we get started!
    While I know that it can sometimes be daunting, homework teaches responsibility and is designed to be a review of skills learned throughout the day.  If for some reason your child experiences extreme frustration while completing an assignment, don't torture them or yourselves!  Please just write me a note on the assignment or in their planner, and I'll help them the following day.  In addition, homework should not take more than an hour to an hour and a half.  Contact me if your child is struggling to complete their homework in a timely manner.  I am sure we can work together to help them be successful.
