3rd grade homework is meant be done independently with little help from adults. Students at this age should be completing homework for no more than 30 minutes each night with a 20 minute independent reading block as well. Please look over your child’s homework and help correct mistakes, redo if it is sloppy, or just review. If homework ever becomes too challenging or is taking longer than 30 minutes, please see me and we will adjust as necessary. You can also contact me regarding homework by leaving a note tucked into the pencil pouch in the binder.
Students will keep their homework in their homework binder. The homework binder should go back and forth between home and school each day. This binder will become a valuable resource and will grow as the year progresses. Please use the resources in the binders to help with homework, review work or concepts, and just keep up with current work.
