I apologize that our first week of homework, using the links on this blog, has been so confusing and frustrating for many of you. I am working hard to smooth this process out, making it something useful, efficient, and supportive for everyone.
To clarify, homework is always due on Monday, unless there is no school. In that case it will be due on the following day of school (Tuesday in most cases).
Spelling and Vocabulary words for the entire winter trimester can be found by clicking on the link found in the right column, and then selecting the current week of school from the folder (it appears as two dates signifying the beginning and the end of the homework week e.g. Dec. 5- Dec. 12). Spelling (Sp) and vocabulary (Vocab) documents are printable from home. The spelling provides Tic-Tac-Toe activities for the students to work on. You will notice that the vocabulary and corresponding spelling documents have numbers indicating the specific unit of instruction. For example, Sp 11 (Dec. 12- Jan. 3) is connected to the document Vocab (11-15) because the 11 is the unit of instruction. Therefore, select the appropriate spelling document dates and corresponding vocabulary unit number words each week to focus on with your child.
My goal is to update the Writing and Math homework every weekend, so that it is available Monday morning for the new week of school.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
