Students receive a weekly homework packet that is sent home on Monday and should be returned on Friday. The homework is consistent every week with occasional exceptions.
Reading: Reading should be done for 15-20 minutes everyday. The title and number of pages read should be recorded on the homework reading log and a parent or guardian should sign the log on Thursday before returning the homework.
Spelling: There are two spelling activities that should be done on two different days as a way to practice the words for the test on Friday.
Grammar and Reading Comprehension: Students are given two to four pages of activities that reinforce what they have been learning in the classroom.
Writing: Students are given a writing topic every week. They should be using the Step Up to Writing method that they have been learning in the classroom. Their expository (informational) writing should always include a topic sentence, at least three details, conclusion, and a detailed picture. When writing a narrative it should include a beginning, middle, and end. The writing should be neat and organized. The picture should be neat and colorful.
Math: Students should complete the 2 (front and back) pages of math. There are several concepts on each page. Most activities are review but on occasion there are new concepts that we have not learned yet.
As a rule homework should be done neatly and completely. Parents should review and sign it every week. Homework must be turned in on Friday. unless other arrangements have already been made.
