Room 25's Homework
Students are expected to keep track of their homework in their agendas. Each day, there is time set aside for filling in agendas and collecting homework materials. Students do not need to get their agendas signed by a parent unless they consistently fail to turn in their homework.
Third grade students are required to have a least 30 minutes of homework per night. This comes from Stoughton Public Schools and will be checked every day.
Nightly homework usually consists of a math review worksheet, fact sheet, and a spelling job. More homework may be added depending on the needs of the students.
Maintaining Skills at Home with homework:
Please set aside time and a quiet place each afternoon/evening for your child to complete the assigned work. As a review of previously taught skills, homework should not be a time of conflict or stress. Children are expected to develop responsibility for their own work and to put forth good, concentrated effort for the allotted time. If your child consistently exceeds the time guidelines above please notify me so that we may address the issue(s) in a timely manner.
Maintain a routine with the homework and school schedule. If you need help with this, I will be glad to sit down with you and help set this up!
One of the most difficult parts of homework is not completing it but bringing it back!!!!
As soon as your child has completed the assignment, have them place it in their homework folder and in their bag the night before. Also, be sure to check they did and have them pack a water, a snack and needed money for lunch or their lunch.
Try to get homework done early in the evening so your child can get it finished and be to bed at a reasonable hour. Tired children have a much harder time getting work done and having positive social interactions.
Be sure to help your child with their homework (when needed) and clean out their folder and bag nightly. With this team work, we will build study skills that will last a lifetime. Remember, it will take some work!
