__HOMEWORK POLICY__**I expect all homework to be done by the students themselves. Based on their homework I will be able to determine if the child needs further review of the subject matter being presented. Feel free to work with your child as long as they are still doing the work themselves. Please let me know if you notice that there is an area that could use some further explanation. Thank you for your support at home.**

****All Homework must be signed by the parent each night****

**2 or more missing home works may result in a privilege taken away.****Students, who miss homework, must make it up the day after they return.****Full credit is given for full effort.****If homework is turned in one day late, 1/2 credit will be given****After one day late, no credit will be given,**__but__the work must be completed.**All work should be shown along with the answers in an organized manner.****Students are responsible for checking their own work and making corrections.**

In order to help children be more responsible for their homework and taking their finished work home, I have assigned each child a

__HOMEWORK FOLDER__**It will contain their**

__.____home reading log, letters and or notices__from the school or me. The

__home reading log__should remain in the homework folder to be reviewed by me at the end of the week. The reading log is a journal record of their reading. Please sign or initial this log. I will keep them for reference. Your child should

__read for at least 30 minutes each night.__This can be done silently or with you.

__Please look at your child's folder each night. It will provide you with a way of knowing what your child is doing.__****Please Remove Letters and Finished work From Folder Daily.**
