Homework Policy Grade 5

Homework

Homework is not meant to be a punishment for students… it is meant to reinforce what each student has learned on any given day. Homework should take, on average, between 45-60 minutes per night to complete all subjects assigned.

Again, we cannot stress enough the importance of reading at home! In addition to this daily responsibility, parents can expect to see homework coming home on a regular basis in Math and only occasionally from Science or Social Studies.

Students will be taught to keep their homework assignments recorded in their Agenda Books and the assignments kept in their accordion folders.  Organization will be stressed this year and your help in maintaining a well-organized accordion folder would be helpful.
