Mrs. Moorman's Class - Homework
Each night, your child will have four assignments that are to be completed before they come to school the next day. The assignments, which should take no longer than 50 minutes to complete, are listed below:
* 30 minutes of reading
* Reading Log
* Math Review Sheet
* Comprehension Practice
Below I have attached the Reading Log that I use in class. If, for some reason, your child does not have a Reading Log for the night, feel free to print one of the Logs below to record the night's reading.
Why do I assign homework? I believe homework is important because it helps reinforce what has been learned in class, prepares student for upcoming lessons, teaches responsibility and helps student develop positive study habits.
When will homework be assigned? I will assign homework at the end of every school day and it will be due to me the following morning.
What are your child’s homework responsibilities? I expect each child to do their best job on each homework assignment. I expect homework to be neat and done in pencil. I expect homework to be completely finished by class time the following morning.
What will happen if assignments are not completed? If students choose not to do their homework, they will lose certain classroom privileges. After three homework assignments have not been turned in, or are turned in incomplete, the parent will be contacted and a homework contract will be set up.
What about legitimate excuse for not completing a homework assignment? If there is a legitimate reason why a student is unable to complete the assignment, simply write a note for me explaining the reason why in the Communication Log.
What are a parent’s homework responsibilities? Parents are the key to making homework a positive experience for their children. Therefore, I ask that parents make homework a top priority at home, provide necessary supplies and a quiet homework environment, set aside time every day when homework is to be done, provide praise and support, not allow children to avoid doing their homework, and contact me if a problem arises.
Please read and discuss this homework policy with your child. We can do this together!!
In an effort to keep you better informed about your child's progress, as well as keep a dialogue open between you and I, I will be sending home a Communication Log to you each night. This manilla colored journal will have the homework for the day written in it (by your child) as well as a place for you to sign once your child has completed his or her homework.
If you ever have a question about class, please feel free to write it in the Communication Log. I read them daily and will respond as soon as possible.
On Fridays, a Weekly Report will be inserted into the Log. This is designed to keep you updated on your child's academic and behavior progress. Make sure you are reading them each Friday, sign and return on Monday. I have attached a SAMPLE of what the document will look like.
