READING

Reading is the foundation of all other academic areas and is especially important as students move up grade levels. It is important that students become accustomed to reading both fiction and non-fiction text. Please be mindful of the amount of reading your child does this year, as well as the balance of different reading genres. Students should be reading for at least 30 minutes each night.


WRITING

Students have writing homework EVERY night. These are called quick-writes, and your child already has a composition book dedicated to this assignment.

To complete a quick-write, students are to write for 10 minutes about a given topic. There is no right/wrong as long as they are writing. The purpose of this assignment is to practice generating ideas and improving the skill of putting those ideas in writing. Quick-write topics are also posted on eclass and may be completed online instead of with pencil and paper. Students are encouraged to respond to classmates’ posts on eclass. (currently my eclass page is listed under Williams until it can be changed to DeVoe).
