- Finish your log. Due Monday, completed.
- Math Homework Lesson 8 (Finish problem set if not done in class)
- Notice the watershed around you this weekend- What parts did you see up close and/or far away? Fodder your observations with art and captions.
Mrs. Sakuma's philosophy on homework is that it is a follow-up of what was learned in class to check for understanding (with the exception of some assignments- projects, research, front-loading information, etc). If a child struggles on homework but gives it a good try, there is absolutely no penalty for incompletion IF the student lets the homework checker AND the teacher know by showing a parent signature with a little note or a quick parent email to me. Please put a question mark (?) on the problems struggled with.
How much homework will there be?
Typically there is 20 minutes of reading, one math page and online assignment(s). There will periodically be projects and research. Homework should not take more than one hour. If it does, stop and be done for the day.
How will I know if my child is doing his/her homework?
By Friday, planners need to be logged, complete, and signed by parents. When homework is missing or incomplete, communication via “class dojo” will let parents and students know dates of missing/incomplete (unexcused) homework. Students will stay in for recess to complete unexcused missing homework (not optional) or get tutoring on the parts that he/she did not understand (optional).
