Mrs. Elliott’s 1st Grade Homework Policy
Your child will receive a monthly homework calendar in the homework pocket of their binder. The activities listed on these calendars are for additional practice and will provide students with reinforcement of concepts taught in class. Some of the assignments are written, while others are activities for your child to do orally or with materials at home. There will be no homework on Fridays! :)
All written tasks should be dated and completed in your child’s homework notebook. Please initial inside each box on the homework calendar once your child has completed the task and return the homework packet at the end of each month.
In addition to the homework calendar, students are expected to read each night for at least 10-15 minutes. They may read books of their choice (library book, books from home, etc.). Beginning in early October, students will be bringing home leveled books from me. Students should be able to read these books to you with little help. Once a week, students will be responsible for completing a short literacy activity on one of the books they have read. These will be stapled to the monthly homework calendar.
Small prizes, awards and certificates may be given to students who have done all homework at the end of the month. Please note that the homework will not be graded, however, their work will be taken into account towards their learning progress for their report cards.
