Homework tasks will vary according to student needs. All students will be encouraged to read alone and read with an adult each day. At the end of the week, the child will draw and/or write (depending on writing skills) about one thing he/she read during the week. These reflections will be kept in a reading journal.

Students will also be asked to do word work (spelling) 1-2 times a week, handwriting practice 1-2 times a week, and Passport Club (geography) studying a few times a week. It will be up to each family to decide which of these are key for your child’s success. As teachers, we will work with you to develop a plan that is reasonable and beneficial to your child’s learning.
