Please check the weekly newsletter for the current day’s assignments. Students will be assigned a math and English Simple Solutions and an additional math review lesson each night. Reading with your child, flashcard practice, spelling words, and sight words are also strongly encouraged each night. Any additional assignments will be included in the weekly newsletter. Homework should generally take your child 10-20 minutes at this age, a time allotment supported by current research.
