Homework

Each night your child should be reading for an appropriate amount of time. Typically we are expecting 20 -30 minutes, but this amount of time depends on your child. We hope to help create a reading life for each child. They read at school and they read at home. Each week your child will have a reflective question to respond to about their reading. This question will be answered in Google Classroom. 

 

Monthly your child will also receive an optional math problem solving activity page called Math Stars.

 

Math games will be sent home as the games are introduced in school and these can be played

as much as possible at home.
