Homework and Upcoming Tests
**UPDATE - Homework should take no more than 40 minutes each night. If your child is spending more than 40 minutes, please let me know. Also, remember we go over and work with the spelling words, vocabulary words and the science packet each day in class so that a lot of time is not required at home.
**Amazing words are extra work and are not required - I know that some students like to be challenged, so I have come up with the amazing list for that purpose.
**Math enrichment packet - this is also extra work and not required. At times students finish their work in class and this is something that is good for higher level students to work on during class.
Please make sure you check and SIGN your child's agenda nightly! Their agenda is on their iPad!
*Reading Comprehension 3-4x a week
*Math homework daily
*Math Enrichment packet (extra credit) - Due Tuesday
*Science packet - This can be found on Canvas - please study the packet each night! The first 2 weeks I sent home the paper copy, now you will find this in Neu.Annotate.
*Study Spelling words - Words are located in Neu.Annotate. Also, all words are on Spelling City for extra practice. There is a quick link from the left side of my Canvas page.
*Vocabulary Test on Thursday - Students have downloaded words into Neu.Annotate. They can also practice these words in Quizlet!

***Please remember, your child is NOT required to read every night! They need to keep up with their weekly reading goal.
We will have a reward party at the end of the nine weeks for those students who are at 100% of their AR goal and 88% correct on TESTS.
AR will count as 10% of your child's reading grade each nine weeks.
Congrats to the following Students who are at or ABOVE 40% of their AR Goal:
