Students have been given agenda books to record their nightly/weekly homework assignments. Each day, we will devote a few minutes to recording these assignments. Each Monday (Tuesday, if it's a holiday week), I will do a check of their agenda books to be sure we are all on track.
Each night, fourth grade students are expected to read at least 20 minutes in a "Just Right" book and record their minutes read. As the year progresses, more expectations linked to their reading may be added (such as a short written component). Parents are expected to initial in the Agenda Book so that I can be sure we are all working toward success!
Each night, fourth grade students are expected to practice their basic math facts. This can be done with flash cards, math games, recitation, call and response with a partner, songs, artwork, etc. Let's be creative and make this task fun for our kids! Please check agenda books for information on which facts need the most attention for the week.
Occasionally, other homework assignments will be expected to be completed. Please check agenda books for these.
