New Language Arts Homework Procedure Information

This week we are going to attempt a new homework system for Language Arts.


Students will be responsible for their spelling words through the week, there will not be any "spelling boxes." There will be one page of Language Arts sent home a night to be returned the next day. These pages should only take 10 minutes, maximum, to complete. If your student is struggling, STOP, we will work through it together the next day. Each day when they get to school they will turn their Language Arts homework into Mrs. George and they will review it as a class. I feel as though this is the best way to gauge who is understanding concepts to get them prepared for 4th grade.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

Math Homework Updates

This week we are going to attempt a new homework system for Math. Starting Tuesday students will be assigned online Math homework on Itslearning. Those who have permission will be allowed to bring home their Chromebooks. The homework will primarily be on IXL.com. The students know their login information for these sites. There were a few students that indicated they will not be able to go online at home. I will provide a related homework page for those students, that will come home in their take-home folder each evening. Math homework for tonight went home with the Spelling page. This week we will be focusing on review activities as we gear up for the start of ISTEP next week.


Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
