Room I-18’s Expectations We always do our best the first time! We will use appropriate language at all times. We will raise our hands if there is a question/answer. We will respect others and their property. We will use kind words to each other.
Students will be assigned homework on a nightly basis. They will write it down in their reminder binders before going home each day. Your child should be spending approximately 45 to 50 minutes a night on homework, Monday-Thursday, as required by the school district. It will be evaluated on your child’s report card. Please make sure to check and initial your child’s reminder binders each night. Look for any important information I have listed on it for the week on the Announcements Sheet that is taped into their binder. You will also notice a number that is circled each day in their binder. A “1” is Awesome and a “6” is Stop (student owes 20 min.). This is a daily behavior/participation score. Homework consists of: Reading for 20 minutes, Math, and a language arts activity nightly. Some nights will have a social studies or science activity. Study spelling words for test on Thusday, unless it is a four-day week. Homework is checked and collected the next day, otherwise noted.
Students are to read or be read to for 20 minutes each night. It should be a “Good Fit Book” for them. Their Fluency reading log should be filled out and signed by parents on Thursday evening or Friday morning before school. Their total number of minutes read should be greater than or equal to 80 minutes (the fluency reading may count for 20 minutes for the week). Reading Log
