YES, YOU HAVE HOMEWORK!! :)
Our homework policy in 5th Grade is firm and in full effect. In 5th Grade we teach responsibility and homework is a great tool to use to influence this skill. When your student is given a piece of homework, unless otherwise directed by the teacher it is due the very next school day. If it is not returned the next day then it is an automatic 15 points off. If it is not back the following day then it is an automatic zero. and will be marked as a Zero in the grade book.
** Please note that I do give MANY in class assignments. This means that most of our work will be completed in class and due at the end of class each day. If a student does not finish in class then yes it will be deemed as homework.
As a 5th Grade team we want your students to understand the reason behind homework. We do not give it to them for "busy work" or as a punishment. We want to teach them responsibility while keeping their minds constantly thinking about the material from that day in class. We want them to succeed ALWAYS and homework puts a punch in that ticket to success. If you have any questions about our homework policy, please contact me.
