Homework Information

Students need to remember to do their homework and return it in their T.E.A.M.S. Folders daily for homework. Homework helps to review and practice skills learned in the classroom.

If there is a legitimate reason why a student is not able to finish homework, the parent must send a note on the day the homework is due stating the reason it was not complete. Without a note, students will be expected to do the work during recess time.

**Your Second Grade child 

should be reading

20 - 30 minutes daily.**

Let them read aloud to you!


Homework for a Second Grader should take about 30 minutes.

As a teacher and a busy mom, I know that homework can sometimes be a touchy subject. Life gets busy and there isn't always as much time as we would like. Here are some of my  tips for getting homework completed this school year:

1) Homework should not take more than a half hour each night. If it is taking your child longer, please let me know by email or by writing me a note on the homework sheet.
2) For most assignments, your child should be able to complete them independently; however, please check over their work when they are finished to be sure that they understood the directions. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE 100% CORRECT...I like to see how they are doing on their own. However, if you see your child struggling and you know how to help, please do.
3) Please help your child study weekly spelling words, vocabulary meanings, and any study guides that are sent home. Second graders are not very good at studying successfully on their own.
4) Always check your child's homework sheet. This should come home every night.  This is a valuable communication tool for me and you! If your child tells you there is no homework, and it's not a Friday, ask to see the homework sheet.
5) Provide a quiet space, free of distractions for your child to work...that should help it get finished quicker.
6) If there is ever an assignment that you and your child are confused about, please just have him/her try their best and write me a short note on the homework sheet. I will provide extra help for your child when I can.

Make sure your child is READING daily at home.  Students can also do xtramath.org at home too.
