Homework is given Monday - Thursday, and very occasionally some assignments will need to be completed or worked on over the weekend.
Students are responsible for copying their homework into their agenda each day! It is each student's responsibility to make sure that they have copied their HW from the HW board in my classroom correctly.
Daily homework for a fifth grade student should take approximately 50-60 minutes to complete. (not including long term projects and reading time)
Students should be reading for at least 30 minutes each night.
Homework is expected to be completed, in school, and in class the day that it is due, which is usually the next day. I will keep accurate records of student homework completion.
Homework should be written neatly and legibly in pencil.
Homework is an essential part of learning. It gives students a chance to further their knowledge and practice the material that is being learned in class.
Students should always do their best work on their homework assignments. They should always REREAD and check their work carefully!
We may go over homework assignments the next day in class, or I may occasionally collect an assignment to read/check it more thoroughly.
Most homework should be able to be completed independently by your child, as it will be covering topics and concepts that were taught at school. Of course, please help and assist your child if/when they have questions/concerns on their assignments. I encourage you to ask your child about their homework and what they are learning in class. The more they are able to talk about the material they are learning the better!
Encourage your child to keep a neat and organized work space at home - as well as neat and organized materials.
