Homework Policy

Homework Policy

It is homework time again! Homework is really going to vary this year in accordance to what the children's needs are at the time. You can access their daily assignments and projects on the school website at https://www.angier.sandiegounified.org/.

There will usually be at least 3 parts to their homework every night. There will be a Reading portion, Math portion, and a Language/Spelling portion. Homework assignments are done daily and are due the next day. If you ever want to know what the homework assignments are for the week, please check the website (https://www.angier.sandiegounified.org/) or their notebook for daily assignments. At our website: You will need to select Classrooms and then select Mrs. Kivett's 3rd grade classroom.

The math program has various types of homework. It may be a worksheet sent home, work done out of their math book, or various home projects. The amount of problems will also vary according to the amount of needed practice. Sometimes more is learned from doing a few problems well. Children will be notified of up coming tests and are administered any day of the week. The math book will be taken home from time to time. It is the student's responsibility to bring the book BACK to school the following day. It will be needed for class instruction and if not returned will complicate instruction. If the math book is lost, it will need to be replaced. Students/parents can also access their math book online. Passwords will be given out once students are entered into the system.

Spelling will be words that we are working on in class. A list will be sent home on Friday of every week. This is done so students who need more time with their words can study them over the weekend. There may be some homework assignments incorporating the spelling list, but most studying of the words will be done at the student's discretion. Tests will be on Friday, except for short weeks.

The students are expected to read at least 30 minutes a night. Each night they will be expected to write the title, author, and genre of the book they read. Please be sure that they are doing their reading at home. They should know at least one thing we are working on in reading in class. You can really help reinforce their learning by asking them about their books and asking them about their skill that they are working on in the Units of Inquiry or Guided Reading.

There will be various writing assignments dealing with their reading, other parts of language study, and the other subjects covered in class.

All homework is to be completed carefully and neatly. Children are expected to write down homework assignments and complete them before returning to school the next morning (longer assignments will be given deadline dates). If you have any questions of their homework assignment for the night, please check their homework journal or the school website. If a student is not accompanied with a written excuse or reasonable excuse for not completing their assignments, they will be sent to the lunch arbor to complete assignments during recess. Homework also needs to be redone if it is not done neatly or is done without care. If it is not completed during the day, it will need to be finished that night as extra homework.

Homework is a very important part to your child's learning. I appreciate your patience and help with the nightly assignments. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at (858) 496-8295 or email me at kkivett@sandi.net.

Sincerely,

Mrs. K.
