Homework is given every Monday through Thursday, except on testing days. Your child is expected to complete the green circled problems ("must dos") and return the worksheet to school the following day. Yellow circled problems are the "can dos," which your child may do for extra practice.
Every week, students will have the same homework. Keep in mind this may change based on which Skills teacher your child has. Sometimes additional homework is given out.
Mondays: Three times each (due on Tuesdays) and Fluency passage (due on Fridays)
Tuesdays-Thursdays: Fluency passage and study spelling words on your own
Notes on Fluency Passage Homework: Your child is to read the weekly passage each night. Please follow the directions of your child's skills teacher. Some groups are asked to time the reading and record the number of words per minute.
Fun Friday & Responsibility Room
Students who finish all homework on time and have acceptable behavior (not ending a day on "consequences") will be able to enjoy an activity of their choice for about a half hour on Friday afternoons.
Students who owe homework or were on "consequences" that week will have to spend that time in the Responsibility Room. If they owe work, they will make up the work at that time. If they go because of behavior, they will discuss what behavior led to them being on "consequences" and discuss how to make smarter choices in the future.
Please read, sign, and return your child's Friday Note each week. This note will allow you to see your child's behavior for the week and read a comment from me.
