WEEKLY HOMEWORK - Little Different this week

Reading Homework - Read 15-20 minutes Monday - Thursday and fill in one square on your reading log nightly

Vocabulary Homework:

Students will need to fill out a Vocabulary graphic organizer on Monday and Tuesday, using 4 words each day.

Math Homework:

Students REALLY need to work on passing off all multiplication facts. They will need to complete a math fluency sheet each night, practicing the facts they are working on passing off in class.

Other Homework:

As we are approaching new standards and need to practice different standards, homework may vary. Students will need to be especially diligent about writing down the exact homework and taking home necessary items. Please encourage your students to build their "responsibility muscle" as the school year progresses.
