For the 2016-2017 school year, student's homework consists of reading for 20 minutes and studying Spelling words nightly. A weekly reading comprehension test will be given each Friday pertaining to an assigned story from their Reading book. Although we cover the story daily in class, I recommend students practice the story at home as well (especially struggling students). We will also have a Spelling test covering 10 words each week. A pretest will be given on Thursday and a retake will be given on Friday. Math assessments will be given on Friday, unless otherwise noted. If I notice a student struggling with something we have been practicing, extra work may be sent home periodically. It will not be required for a grade; however, the extra practice is invaluable!
