I assign homework each and every night, Monday through Thursday. It is checked each day your student turns it in. I keep track of who does and who does NOT complete their homework. Students who complete their homework each day for an entire marking period will receive a certificate and 25 Tokens! Students who do not complete their homework will lose time off of their recess.
My philosophy of homework is simple. Homework helps reinforce skills taught in class and also helps develop a sense of responsibility. Your child will copy their homework assignments in their Agenda, remember to bring home their homework, ask for your INITIALS in their Agenda and return both to school the next day. Homework should never take more than 5-10 minutes. If you child is struggling, cannot figure out how to solve etc... simply write a note and send it back with the homework. I will re-teach the skill. You child will NOT be penalized for not completing the assignment.
