Homework may be assigned Monday – Thursday. Unless there is an upcoming test, there is usually no homework assigned on Fridays. All homework is written in the assignment notebook. A checkmark in the first box of each subject indicates that the child has the materials needed to complete the assignment. A checkmark in the second box indicates the child has completed that assignment.
Why is homework assigned? Homework helps reinforce what is being taught in the classroom. It teaches students responsibility and good study habits.
If a student does not complete his or her homework, a missing assignment form will be filled out and sent home. A parent must sign the form. The form and missing assignment are due the following day. If I feel that incomplete homework is becoming a habit and happening frequently, I will ask for a conference so that together we can figure out how to help the child become a more responsible student.
