Starting this week, 3-Z will have Math homework (along with DreamBox).
The students will choose one day a week, each week, that they would like to have homework. They will then be expected to bring their homework back the next day. This will allow them to gauge their schedule and determine the best day to complete their work. (We will move to two days a week in March.)
The students will also be choosing the area of math they would like their homework to focus on (measurement, perimeter, addition, subtraction, etc.).
Each assignment should take them 15-20 minutes. If it is taking longer than this or it is too difficult, they should stop and write a note letting me know what happened. The same goes for an assignment that is completed too quickly.
My goal is to encourage a sense of self-reflection and responsibility. Please talk to your child about what day of the week they chose to have homework to ensure that it is the best day for them and that they complete the work.
Thank you for your support,
