Homework: 

There is a sheet in your chid's binder that explains exactly how to do the weekly homework. Please keep it somewhere safe for you reference, I will paste a copy of it below. Homework will begin THIS week, and it is DUE on FRIDAY. 

TESTS THIS WEEK: All Tests will be on Thursday this week due to our Performance Series testing on Friday

How to complete Mrs. Banks’ Weekly Homework: This is also in your child's binder

READING:

You will receive a story in your binder on Mondays. It will stay in the sheet protector all week unless you are completing the nightly comprehension portion on the back of the story. You HAVE to read the story every night. This boosts fluency and comprehension which is critical for third grade and beyond!

Monday Night: Read the story. Complete Monday’s questions on the back of the story.

Tuesday Night: Read the story. Complete Tuesday’s questions on the back of the story.

Wednesday Night: Read the story. Complete Wednesday’s questions on the back of the story.

Thursday Night: Read the story. Complete Thursday’s questions on the back of the story.

Friday: Turn into daily work folder in class. I will randomly choose students for timed reading, but all students will receive a Dojo point towards Fun Friday.

SPELLING:

You have a monthly spelling menu and a unit spelling list in your binder. Please do not lose it. You only get one copy per month/unit.

Monday: Choose an activity from the menu and complete on notebook paper. 

Tuesday: Choose another activity from the menu and complete on the same sheet if there is room. The back of the paper is fine. 

Thursday: Choose an activity and study for your test. Place all notebook paper pages inside the sheet protector with the Spelling menu. 

Friday: Place all of your homework (Reading and Spelling) inside of your daily work folder.

We complete Spelling for morning/classwork DAILY, so if your child is completing their work in class they should be getting plenty of spelling practice. Three nights of homework should be enough. I really want to focus on Reading!

 

Please keep this sheet somewhere for your reference. As always, I will let the students  know if we are not having homework due to testing or changes in our schedule.
