"Why do we have homework?"
Homework provides an opportunity for students to practice and reinforce the skills that are taught in class. Homework assignments are carefully chosen and the expectation is that all homework will be completed to the best of the child's ability.
Everyday Math Home Links
On most nights, students will be assigned a math Home Link worksheet to complete and return the following day. The worksheet reinforces that day's math lesson.

Students will be given their word sort dependent upon their skill level. Students need to complete an extra practice spelling worksheet and word sort. These will be due on Fridays and students will be tested on the spelling of these words.
