According to Responsive Classroom research there is no proven correlation between academic achievement and homework. Many children have extracurricular activities that provide rich learning experiences. We believe after long school hours children need to explore and have time to play. The primary team wishes to make homework meaningful and related.
We will send home a weekly reading and writing log in the Friday Folder. We hope that each student is reading/read to for 20 minutes daily and writing for 20 minutes daily. When we start a new unit in math class, we will send home a parent letter about the unit of study and suggested family activities relating to the unit. Any unfinished work in Math will be sent home to be completed. We will periodically send home family home projects for units of study we do as a team.
Do you need another copy of family homework that has been assigned? You can find it attached in this section!
This log will come home each month as a way to document the reading and writing homework each night.
