Homework is sent home on most nights, but it should not take more than 40 minutes to complete. If it is taking your child more than this time, please let me know.
Assignments that are sent home will not be graded. Homework isn't always an accurate reflection of what students are able to complete independently. However, this does not mean that your child has no homework. Assignments that are sent home need to be completed and returned to school the next day unless otherwise noted in the assignment notebook. I will still check assignments for accuracy and completion. Homework is crucial for review and mastery. Unfinished assignments will continue to be sent home until they are completed and returned.
There may be a few take-home projects that will serve as a grade. These projects will come home with a rubric and complete directions that can also be found on our classroom website. At least a week, and sometimes more, will be given to complete these parent/student assignments.
