Homework is a very important part of education.
Homework is a chance to practice
the strategies and skills learned in class.
In 5th grade it is expected that students read for 30-60 minutes
and practice math facts for 5-10 minutes daily...even on the weekends!
When a book is completed the story elements are recorded in a
graphic organizer and the title of the book is recorded in the student's book log.
25 independent books is the goal for every child!
Responding to the Poem of the week is done with 3 separate assignments a week.
