“What’s the Deal with Homework?”
The homework for students in fourth grade is to read every night for 20 minutes. While this doesn’t seem like homework it is what we see works best for students. Our goal in fourth grade is to see more students starting and finishing books in a timely manner, and this set time helps them do that. In addition to reading, they should be completing their reading calendar daily to track the books that they have read.
Looking for more? Starting with Unit 2 of Math, we are sending HomeLink packets home. The packets will contain all HomeLinks for the unit. These pages are for practice. They will not be collected or graded but are a way for you to connect with your student and see what they are learning at school. With the HomeLinks is also the Family Letter which contains helpful information along with ideas for practicing math at home and a few selected answers!
