BEE Folder & Instructions
Inside your child’s BEE folder you will find their weekly homework calendar. Homework is crucial to your child’s success in this accelerated program. Please follow these steps to help your child complete their homework:
1. Check homework calendar for daily behavior (see color key on the front of Homework folder).
2. Read nightly homework assignment and help your child complete all tasks.
Please be sure that all homework pages are returned accurate and with NEAT handwriting. Backwards letters/numbers and sloppy writing will not be accepted as complete. All homework should be completed with a pencil.
