2nd Grade Homework Policy:

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 (the 2nd grade team) believe that after long school hours, children need to explore and have time to play.

The 2nd grade team wishes to make homework meaningful and related to teaching content. We will send home a weekly reading and writing log in Friday Folders each month that are completely optional to use, but might be a helpful tool. We hope that each student is reading or read to for 20 minutes daily, and writing for 20 minutes daily. Any unfinished work in Math will be sent home to be completed. Unfinished work should be completed and returned to school. 

We will periodically send home family home projects for units of study.

Reading & Writing Log - A good goal for 2nd graders is to write for 20 minutes and read for 20+ minutes daily (or be read to!). This Reading & Writing Log is an optional tool for you to use if it is a helpful way to track minutes.
