1.) Homework assignments will be communicated to students’ verbally in class and in written form that students must write down in a daily planner. Assignments are due the following day.
2.) 3rd grade students will be assigned 30 minutes of homework four nights each week.
3.) Students learn to read by reading. Thus, it is our expectation that students will read independently for 15 minutes nightly. This time will be included in the 30 minutes.
4.) Students are expected to complete their homework independently. Parents should facilitate completion, not teach content. Our goal is to help students become independent thinkers and learners.
5.)Homework will be checked daily. Students may be expected to make up missing assignments during recess time or during a choice activity time at the end of the week.
