HOMEWORK
 
MY GOAL IS FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILD TO HAVE A ROUTINE AND CALM HOMEWORK EXPERIENCE. HOMEWORK REQUIRES SOME PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT AT THIS LEVEL WITH SOME ENCOURAGEMENT AND INDEPENDENCE.  YOUR COOPERATION IS ESSENTIAL IN DEVELOPING A POSITIVE HOMEWORK HABIT.
 
HOMEWORK PROCEDURES
 
ALL HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS ARE EXPLAINED, MODELED AND WRITTEN ON THE 'HOMEWORK' BOARD AT SCHOOL.  STUDENTS COPY THE DAILY ASSIGNMENTS IN THEIR 'HOMEWORK PLANNER.' PLEASE REVIEW THIS 'HOMEWORK PLANNER' ON A DAILY BASIS WITH YOUR CHILD.  
 
IN 2ND GRADE, HOMEWORK IS USED IN PART TO BUILD RESPONSIBILITY.  AFTER YOUR CHILD COMPLETES THEIR HOMEWORK, YOUR JOB IS TO REVIEW IT WITH HIM OR HER AND ENSURE THAT IT IS COMPLETED.  PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD TO PACK HIS OR HER BACKPACK INDEPENDENTLY EACH NIGHT.
 
THE FOLLOWING DAY, AS A CLASS, WE WILL REVIEW THE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS.
 
THERE ARE SEVERAL INCENTIVES I USE IN MY CLASSROOM WHERE STUDENTS ARE REWARDED FOR COMPLETED HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS.  PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT IF YOUR CHILD FAILS TO COMPLETE HOMEWORK HE OR SHE WILL BE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE ASSIGNMENT AT HOME.  PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT HOMEWORK IS 10% OF EACH SUBJECT'S FINAL GRADE.
