Homework should be marked in planners daily. We complete this as a class. If there is no homework, students should be reading self-selected materials.
Things to do daily: Read independent book. Study vocabulary (Word of the Day). Study current notes. Work on quarterly project.
It is the student's responsibility to see me about making up work due to being absent. They should also check the absentee folder upon return for work missed and any necessary handouts. You may call for work if your child will be out longer than one day.
Extra Credit is available on a daily basis. Students are instructed at the beginning of the year on options for receiving extra credit. There are a variety of activities depending on student interest, and each assignment is awarded points depending on level of difficulty and student performance.
