Homework Policy

Homework is a time to practice skills for mastery.  Your child will generally have nightly reading, a math assignment, and spelling practice.  Students will also be expected to read a poem each night to help increase their fluency.  It is vital that your child complete his/her homework every night it is assigned.  Please set aside a time each afternoon for your child to complete these assignments.  
If your child is sick and misses a day of school, he/she will have a two day grace period for each day missed to complete the missing assignments.

In addition, please contact me if homework becomes frustrating or if it is taking your student too long.  I will adapt homework assignments if needed.  Homework time for a fourth grader should not exceed an hour.
