Homework Assignments

  • March/April homework
    We , occasionally, have science homework over the next month, and those procedures will remain as they have. We are trying something different for math homework.

    The students have agreed to complete 20 to 30 minutes of homework each week night by either completing a review sheet (choices available in class), or at least 20 minutes of math activities on Prodigy.  Prodigy has an MCAS review assignment designed to be completed over three or four weeks.  The entire assignment represents approximately two hours, but should be completed over time. Students have a Prodigy log that parents should sign.  The first log is due on Monday, April 10.  Work sheets are due the day after they are completed.

Helpful Hints:

The assessment for our animal unit is a designer animal project.  The project will be completed in school, though your child may want to discuss the project at home. The project gives your child the opportunity to use, in depth, the concepts we have been learning about animal adaptations.  It also has a creative aspect. Your child may bring in a shoebox, craft supplies to share, or craft supplies to be used just by your child.  Pipe cleaners, tissue paper, craft feathers and beads would be greatly appreciated.
