Homework is sent home every week in a red folder and is to be returned on Friday, filled out by the student and initialed by a parent or guardian.
You are required to log your reading every night! LOG EVERYTHING! Any reading you do counts! You should practice reading quietly to yourself, reading out loud to someone, and listening to audio recordings of stories. You can even read to your stuffed animals or pets!
Homework menus are provided so that the students may choose how they practice at home. Each student who returns their homework on time will earn Dojo points! Each student who completes extra menu items will earn bonus Dojo points!
No homework is required over the weekends but for some, the weekends may be the best or only opportunity to get it done. We try to convey to students that it is a good habit to read for 20 minutes every day, even on the weekends!
At the end of each month, there will be a special celebration or prize for those who brought their homework every week that month.
