HomeworkNightly students will have reading and math homework.Reading: Students are expected to read at least 20 minutes nightly. Each month students will be assigned a genre of which they are to pick a chapter book of their choice. Throughout the month students will be expected to complete the book. At the end of the month, students will choose a project from their choice boards to complete on what they read and turn in. The project each month will be used as an ELA grade.Math: Each week students will be given a math sheet that has the entire weeks homework on it. Each night there will be 8-10 problems assigned. Students are welcomed to go ahead for the week and complete the nights when they have time, but each night must be ready for the following morning, (ie: Tuesday night's column must be completed by Wednesday morning but students may go ahead if they prefer). On Friday the entire completed sheet will be collected. We will go over the assigned homework daily in class.House Keeping1.
