Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday each week. This homework will consist of reading for 30 minutes, completing a summary on what was read, and practicing math facts (flash cards, Sumdog, etc.). Students will record their homework in their agenda each morning along with any upcoming tests and quizzes that they should be reviewing.
Please encourage students to read at home and create flash cards or study guides for their upcoming assessments. We keep homework light because we also want our students to have time for family and extracurricular activities.
Our expectations are high in fifth grade, and our students exceed them on a daily basis. As a school, we have adapted a list of 30 Essentials that students from kindergarten to fifth grade are expected to illustrate. Please talk to your student about the 30 Essentials- we hope they are illustrating them at home as well.
