Students will be assigned nightly homework Monday-Thursday. Homework is due the morning after it is assigned. I assign homework to help students practice skills that are learned in class. In addition to homework, I also expect students to read self-selected texts at home, and study for tests and quizzes at home. Students will receive a planner to record assignments and other important information along with a homework folder to hold their assignments. Please check the planner and homework folder nightly for assignments or other information. I do not usually take homework for a grade, but I do collect, check, and record homework for a completion grade. Students are expected to complete missing homework during their recess or free time. Assigned homework should take around 30-40 minutes each night.
