ALL HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN YOUR CHILD'S ASSIGNMENT BOOK EACH DAY.  PLEASE REFER TO THE ASSIGNMENT BOOK FOR UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION REGARDING HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS AND QUIZ/TEST DATES.

Spelling:  Students should do spelling homework each week as they feel necessary to receive the desired grade. On Wednesday nights all students need to be given a pretest by an adult (or responsible older sibling), have the pretest checked by the person who gave the pretest, and write any missed words several times. New words are assigned on Fridays and are tested the following Thursday.  Please see the front of your child's spelling notebook for ideas regarding homework activities.

Reading/Writing/Language Arts:  Students have weekly assessments on given topics we have covered.  Please look for any notes and/or study guides in your child's binder.  In addition, your child will have independent reading assignments and written work from a small group novel. Please refer to the inside cover of your child's small group book for specific information.

Math:  Students have quizzes/tests/snapshots at the culmination of each standard we cover. These dates will be noted in your child's assignment book three or so days in advance.  There may be additional work from time to time, if there is a need for additional practice.  This type of assignment will be noted in your child's assignment book.  Your child can always benefit from extra practice using the IXL program.  This can be accessed at
www.ixl.com.  Your child's ID and password are on a label on the front of his/her assignment book.

Science/Virginia Studies: Students have quizzes/tests/snapshots at the culmination of each standard we cover. These dates will be noted in your child's assignment book three or four days in advance.  There may be additional work from time to time, if there is a need for additional review.  This will be noted in your child's assignment book, as well.  Your child should spend 10-15 minutes reviewing and reading his/her notes EACH AND EVERY NIGHT.  There is a great deal of information to learn in both Science and Virginia Studies, and students will not be able to remember all they need by only studying a couple of nights.
