For Grade Four-Five-Six, homework goes home nightly. These are activities which are meant to reinforce skills learned in other areas of the curriculum like Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, Health, Technology and Art.
New concepts will not be introduced in homework, so if your child doesn’t seem to know what to do or is struggling to complete the homework, please let me know. Also, it is perfectly acceptable for your child to miss an occasional week of homework due to unusually high demands on their time (grandparents visiting, dance recital, hockey tournament, etc.). I would rather you let me know that your child will only be able to complete part of the homework or none of the homework than have your family put under undue stress over a homework assignment. It is more important for your child to develop a positive attitude towards homework and learning than it is for them to complete every homework assignment.
In addition to the weekly homework pack, all children should be reading for 20 minutes at home each night. Continual practice and reinforcement of reading strategies is the most powerful way to encourage your child’s progress as a reader.
