Homework is designed to reinforce what has been learned in class, prepare students for upcoming lessons, teach responsibility and help students develop positive study habits. Homework will be assigned every night, along with monthly book projects. My expectation is that your child will do his/her best on each assignment. I have found students are more successful if they have a regular time set for homework and understand that homework is a top priority.
The intermediate class is also subscribed to an educational blog website called KIDBLOG.org. The students are expected to read for at least 20-30 minutes nightly and then respond to a question on KIDBLOG. They will be shown how to use the blog in class.
