For our 2012-2013 letter explaining homework this year please
-will be uploaded as they are made-
Math homework this year will be done mostly on IXL.com. If you need help remembering your password please contact me immediately. I want your child to get credit for all their hard work.
Students are expected to READ 60 minutes a week. They may read any form of literature that they want. However, we will be focusing on a genre every month. If students read ONE book from that genre-of-the month that would be great! In addition, if students read from the genre-of-the-month and read a total of 300 minutes in a month (that is a little more than the 60 minutes required) they can fill out a request form and be part of our Super Star Reader Luncheon! The lunch will be a special time where students can eat with me and we will discuss our books, the genre, and take pictures of them for display. They may even get a special treat!
