Homework Clarifications

Good evening second grade families,
 
I apologize for the confusion regarding your student's homework assignments for this week. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time today to go through KidBiz. We will be going through it together tomorrow and I will give them a chance to practice in class. Starting in September we're expecting each student to complete 8 KidBiz activities per month, but we will use the month of August to familiarize the students with the program and get some practice under their belts.
 
Also, each student should have brought home his/her Homework Folder. It contains a reading sheet (front and back) and a math sheet (front and back). Generally homework will be passed out on Mondays and is due on Fridays, but given this is a short week it is due on Thursday. This week your student will need to combine some of the sections so he/she can turn it in by Thursday. The homework is designed to help students practice time management. You and your student may choose how to go about completing it throughout the week. Some students do everything in one night and return it on Tuesday, others do a section each day and return it on Friday. Once the reading and math sheets are completed (including corrections), your student will not have any other paper homework for the remainder of the week.
 
Your student is still expected to sign his/her planner and read for 20 minutes daily. Families may keep RAH (Reading at Home) folders at home until the last day of the week. I will be tracking the number of books they've logged on Fridays, so I can ensure they are keeping pace to reach 45 books by the end of the quarter.
 
I appreciate your flexibility and understanding as your students and I work through our classroom procedures. Thank you for checking your student's planner daily and asking questions as they arise. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
 
Sincerely,
Ms. Sakuda
