Homework

HW

 

{How It Will Work}

Students will receive all of their homework for the week in their Homework Folders each MONDAY.

 

In each student's homework folder will be:

  • a monthly Spelling activity packet

  • a list of weekly spelling words

Students will have a week to complete the contents of their homework folder.  When each student does his/her work throughout the week will be up to him/her.

Homework folders (with completed work) will be due in class on the following Monday. Student will then receive their new work for the upcoming week.

 

{Breakdown of Weekly Homework}

*Spelling*

Students will complete 4 spelling activities per week.  These activities will prepare them for their test on Friday.

 

*Reading*

Students will need to read at least 20 minutes each night.

 

*Practice Math Facts*

Each night students should spend AT LEAST 10-15 minutes reinforcing their basic math facts. These facts include:

  • addition

  • subtraction

  • multiplication

  • division

 

{The Rationale}

As a third grade team, what we are hoping to do with homework is to continue fostering responsibility and time management without overloading your child. We are also hoping to alleviate stress (both from students AND parents) in regards to homework.

 

In essence, we are going for QUALITY, not QUANTITY.   

 

 

Please remember:

   * Have your child read each night.

   * Discuss the book(s) being read at home!

   * TALK...about anything and EVERYTHING! This helps kids to develop a robust vocabulary.

   * Encourage your child to be a kid and play!
