~Homework is a constructive tool in the teaching/learning process when geared to the needs and abilities of students.  Purposeful assignments not only enhance student achievement, but also develop self-discipline and associated good working habits.  As an extension of the classroom, homework must be planned and organized, must be viewed as purposeful to the students, and should be evaluated and returned to students in a timely manner.


    ~Teachers may give homework to students to aid in the students educational development.  Homework should be an application or an adaptation of a classroom experience, and should not be assigned for disciplinary purposes.


    ~In our classroom:

    -Complete Read Well homework Monday-Thursday.  Each day's homework assignment will be indicated on the homework pages.  The Read Well homework packet will come home on Friday in the Friday folder.  (Some weeks will not have Read Well homework but different reading homework assignment.) 

    -Return the Read Well homework on the Friday of each week.

    -Practice spelling words during he week so your child is ready for the Friday test.
