Homework Policy

homework is funHome Work

 

Dear Families,

         

          I hope this letter will serve as a helpful guide to you as you become part of your child’s 1st-grade learning experience.  I invite you to join me on this exciting and adventurous journey and become partners with me in your child’s education.  I want to be sure that you and I have the same learning goals for your child.  One way I try to achieve this shared vision is to relate the homework assignments to the work we are doing at school.  Therefore, I would like you to help your child with the following kinds of homework assignments:

         

1.  Daily Reader:

Every day except for Friday, your child will be bringing home a book and a log to record reading time.  By filling out the enclosed contract and promising to read with your child every night, you can participate in our Home Reading Program. 

 

2.  Curriculum Assignments:

Every Monday, your child will be bringing home a homework packet with assignments in various curriculum areas to complete throughout the week.  ALL work will be due on Friday morning.
