Homework is usually listed every night on my website.Only 30 Minutes a night…..Total!! For example, if a student has 30 minutes of math homework from another teacher, I don’t expect them to do my homework. Please write me a note in their agenda informing me of the situation.
I usually give reading homework every night ranging from 15 min to 30 min. Students should be reading without interruption. I also ask parents to sign their reading log and agenda every night. In addition, I usually give some type of spelling or vocabulary homework every night such as:
Spelling or Vocabulary Sentences in a story
Pictures that relate to the spelling words
Pictures that relate to the vocabulary words
Finding words that are antonyms or synonyms to the spelling or vocabulary words
Writing the word 3x each
On occasion, I may give students an option of what activity they want to do for homework that night.
