Homework

For Grade Two/Three, homework goes home on Friday and is due back at school the following Wednesday. Hopefully, this set-up will allow each family to complete the homework as it best suits your schedule. The contents of your child’s homework packet will vary from week to week, but it will always contain the weekly list of spelling words which need to be practised in preparation for Friday morning’s test. There will also be 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.

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.
