Homework

Homework:

Reading: We encourage students to read 20 minutes every night. They can read aloud, to themselves, or with someone. This is a great time to talk to students about their reading. Students will also have a one page reading assignment most nights. This supports what students are learning in class and is meant to be finished the same night and returned the next day. 

Writing: Students will be working on their writing at school. Every Friday, students will turn in their writing to check their progress. If a student feels like they are behind they can take their writing home, but they are responsible in bringing it back the next school day.

Math: Math homework is optional. Students may login to their clever account at home and work on Zearn or Xtramath. You can also go to the Embarc third grade website to get more information and math help.
