Students will be given a homework packet on Mondays, and it will need to be turned in on Friday mornings. Homework will consist of 20 minutes of reading each night. Students can choose the genre of their choice for this reading. This will be tracked on each students reading log. Reading logs have students write down the title of their book, the number of pages read, and a short summary of what was read during that time. Each week students will have 20 spelling words sent home with them on the the back of their reading logs. Students are to go over these spelling words each night. They are also asked to choose 5 of the spelling words and use them to create a sentence. We will be having a spelling test every Friday on the weeks words. Student will also be receiving math word problems work on each week. These word problems will be attached to the packet. Students may also have math homework pages that are not attached to the homework packet. These pages will be due the day after they are given. Lastly, students will have have 4 passages that they will need to read and answer questions on. The questions that they are asked to answer coincide with the Common Core State standards, and are designed to have students work on various comprehension skills.
