homework for Monday will be spelling. A new list for the week is given
each Monday and homework will consist of writing the words in sentences
and a practice skills page.
Assigned homework for Wednesday will be a math page to help reinforce the skills currently being practiced in the classroom.
Homework is Helpful!
Students are required to take home any
work they do not get finished in class each day, so they may have
homework on any given day. Mondays and Wednesdays are the only days
assigned homework is given.
I feel that homework is necessary in
third grade for several reasons. It is important in helping
students develop responsibility. It helps in preparation for the upper
grades where homework is a little more plentiful! I hope it can be a
time where parents can spend quality time with their child in helping
them if they need it and in familiarizing themselves with what we
are learning in school. Hopefully it can be a time where students can
learn how to develop good study habits.
The homework assigned should not take more than about 20 minutes to complete.
Please be sure to sign your child's "Weekly Homework Assignment Sheet"
after you have looked over his/her work and sign your name or initials. It's worth an extra scholar dollar to them!
