Homework Policy

Homework 

Your child should be bringing their assignment notebook and portfolio home nightly. 

Please check your child's assignment notebook nightly to assure that your child is completing their assignments and sign it.  

 Weekly Homework

  • Spelling - Each child will take a Spelling Test each Friday.  Your child will have 2 weekly spelling workbook pages to complete each week which are due the Thursday of each week.    
  • Responsibility Recess - Children are rewarded each Friday with an additional grade level recess if they have acted responsible each week.  This does include turning in all their homework for the week.  Any missing assignments in any subject area during the week exempt their participation in "Responsibility Recess."  Our goal is to reward responsible behavior.  
  • Center Work - Your child will have center work to complete independently in class each week.  If your child does not finish his/her center work by Friday morning, he/she will be required to finish the center work for homework and/or during the responsibility recess on Friday.  If he/she is missing a center assignment, it will be counted as a missing assignment. 
ReadyGen

Language Arts
Pearson ReadyGen Series
Language Arts incorporates reading, writing, spelling, and speaking.
 
*Trade books offer authentic, rigorous interactions with text.
*ReadyGen uses a generative approach to vocabulary instruction.  Words are taught in clusters, with a focus on key words that are critical to understanding the text. 
*At the heart of ReadyGen is the mutual exchange between reading and writing.  Students write to sources and cite evidence, developing close reading habits.  They write in different modes, including Informative, Narrative, and Opinion writing.
*Spelling curriculum focuses on spelling patterns.  Students will have weekly spelling homework (Word Anyalysis Workbook) and will be assessed weekly on these words. 
*Silent reading book is needed for class every day.
