- Will my child have homework? If so, how much? Yes, there will be math fact practice from Monday through Thursday. It is your child’s responsibility to practice their math facts nightly and ask you to sign their math fact log. Also, each week the students will have a weekly math sheet. It will be handed out on Mondays and should be completed by Friday. It will consist of questions relating to skills that have been taught in class.
- What is the consequence for not having homework completed? We’ve all been there… busy night, you forget, you left it at school. Life happens. However, homework is as much about teaching the students responsibility as it is reviewing skills. Since life is a series of choices and consequences, this will be no different. If your student does not have his/her homework completed at the beginning of class, he/she will come in for recess only long enough to complete the portion that wasn’t done. Please note that I do not accept the excuse of “My mom/dad forgot to …” Families, it’s not your responsibility to remember to sign papers; you’ve got a lot on your plate. While I do appreciate your assistance with helping remind your child of his/her assignments, your student needs to become accountable for their work. If
- What can I do to help my student at home? The best way to help your child is to keep an eye on how they’re doing on their homework. Talk to him/ her about what is being learned at school and keep us updated if you notice your child is struggling at home. Also, your child has access to programs to help them practice their math skills. Below is a list of these programs with links. If you need assistance accessing them, please feel free to contact me.
