Cabot Historical Society Trip

3rd and 4th graders went on a walking field trip this week to the Cabot Historical Society. We had a chance to look for items from the 1800s and think about how life has changed since that time.

Homework

October 10, 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Last week we sent home a reading log for students to begin working on reading homework.  This week we will introduce math homework.  To help them practice and focus on what math homework will be like we will not have reading logs this week.  Homework for both reading and math will begin next week.  Again, the homework should be independent work and equal a total of 25-30 minutes a night for Monday-Thursdays.

For the math homework please keep in mind the following:
  • Homework will only be on skills students have worked on in class.
  • This should be done independently.

******If your child is asking for your help or is getting easily frustrated please email or call us to let us know and simply tell your child to see us in the morning to let us know what they need help on.  We will also be letting students know this in class so saying this will offer a quick reminder.  We have morning time and quiet time that we can sit and re-instruct students on a skill to give them more confidence in their ability to complete it without help. ***********

Thank you for supporting your children with building these skills at home!  We understand that trying to fit homework into a busy night is at times difficult but we hope giving it to them on Mondays helps them to develop some time management skills and offers flexibility in completing the work.  Math homework along with reading logs should be turned in on each Friday.   

Sincerely,
Ms. Daye and Mrs. Raynor
