Weekly Homework

Every Friday we will send math and reading practice home with your child. It will be due on Thursdays. Students are required to complete all of the homework packet and show work for each problem and question. They have been taught how to do this, so don't let them fool you. :)

We still want them reading 20 minutes every night, but they are not required to complete a reading response. If your child has been given a guided reading assignment that can take place for their nightly 20 minutes of reading.

An example of he homework can also be found on the 3rd Grade Website.
