Sixth Grade New Year Smore!
January 8, 2016
For homework, students are expected to read 30 minutes, at least 5 days a week, and record it on their reading log. During that time, they are also required to stop-and-jot while they're reading. The purpose of them stopping to jot down their thinking is so they can monitor their comprehension as they're reading. Any other homework is usually an in-class assignment that has not been finished.
Students were receiving an assignment check-list each week where they could keep track of their assignments and easily see if they had any missing work. When we return from break, we will have students write each assignment (bell work, homework, in-class tasks, reading logs/stop-and-jot pages, etc) right in their assignment notebook. If they have a check-mark next to the assignment that means they have turned it in. You can check their progress each night when you sign their assignment notebook.
