Fifth grade students will have the following homework assignments every single night:
1. IXL - assigned by unit
2. SILENT READING - read 30 minutes nightly and mark on their 400 Club bookmark (minimum 7 bookmarks per year)
3. COMPLETE A FAMILY ACTIVITY - spend time visiting with their family (i.e. eating dinner, sharing stories, excercising)
4. GET THEIR HOMEWORK PLANNER SIGNED AND RETURNED THE NEXT DAY!
As the year progresses, there may be assignments that need work time at home so that all students can turn in their best work. Some of these assignments are, but they are not limited to: book projects, science fair, Great American Project, writing projects, and more!
Some homework assignments may occur due to how well each student uses his or her personal work time in the classroom. If you feel that your son or daughter may not be using their silent work period to the best of their ability, please ask me for details. You are always welcomed to arrange a visit to the classroom to see how your child learns during the day.
