    Our Nightly Homework Routines/Procedures

    *Word Work:  
    Word Work word lists will be given to your child every Monday.  Please practice these words with your child each night.  Follow the directions listed on the Word Work folder each night.  The Word Work folders do not need to be returned to school, as each week follows the same routine, with the same activity choices outlined in the folder.  All assessments will be given on Fridays. 

    Please read for 20 minutes each night. Be sure to choose a variety of reading material.

    All math homework will be sent home Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and is to be returned the following day. The homework will usually be a worksheet. At times, your child may have a take-home game or online assignment (IXL).  Please guide your students when needed, especially when reading and following the directions given. 

    • Please encourage your child to review their classwork as they do their homework each night. This is an excellent way to reinforce the concepts we learn!
    • All chapter tests must be signed, corrected, and returned the following day. 
    • Practice your math facts every night!
