Homework

Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday. The assignments are as follows:

Spelling

Spelling words are based on a phonics skill or are related to a story we are reading in class.  The assignments are used to assist students in memorizing the words and prepare for the spelling test given each Friday.

  • Monday – Students will write each of the spelling words 3 times each.
  • Tuesday – Students will pick 10 of the spelling words and a sentence that contains each spelling word.
  • Wednesday – Students will put the spelling words in alphabetical order.
  • Thursday – Students should practice spelling their words out loud.

Copies of spelling lists are sent home each Monday. The current list can also be found on the Homepage or on the Spelling Lists page.

Please note: The Spelling Lists page contain all spelling lists for the year.  The current list is highlighted in yellow.

Math

Math homework will be assigned based on the concepts taught during the day.  There are typically 6-10 math problems with new content and a review section containing 6-10 exercises using previously learned concepts.

Due to the nature of the math program, a large number of word problems are assigned.  Please ensure that your child completes every problem to the best of his or her ability.

Reading Logs

Students who read each night for 10 minutes will have read a total of 34 additional hours by the end of the year.  While we read at school, it is important for students to read materials of their own choosing in order to develop a love of reading.  To assist in this, students are asked to read for 10 minutes and record what they read in the reading log sent home each week.

Other assignments are given occasionally.  Please check the Homepage or the Homework Page for the nightly homework assignments.
