Weekly Homework

I believe that if a student is working hard at school from 9-4, he or she needs time to go home and fulfill the requirements of family, sports, household chores, and other extracurricular activities. If your child needs extra support in an area, we are happy to provide resources to accommodate that need. Our homework will consist of nightly reading and occasionally unfinished classwork to complete at home.

I will post our weekly spelling lists and you are welcome to practice these words at home. There will however, be no spelling work to turn in. The students will have time in class each day for word work, where they will learn spelling patterns to prepare them for their weekly test.

The link between homework and student achievement is far from clear. There is no conclusive evidence that homework increases student achievement across the board. Some studies show positive effects of homework under certain conditions and for certain students, some show no effects, and some suggest negative effects (Kohn 2006; Trautwein and Koller 2003).

Homework Week:


No homework this week. We're learning routines and getting to know one another.
