Students will have a reading log to fill out nightly. They should read at least 20 minutes. This can be out loud to you or independent, but I would encourage you to ask them questions about the text. Students should also practice their spelling and multiplication facts throughout the week. They can bring home spelling sheets for practice that we use in class. They should have a set of multiplication cards at home or they can use Moby Max on the computer (or other multiplication sites). 
Additionally, they should be bringing home nightly any unfinished work from the day to turn in the next day. To help ensure they are completing assignments I always list missing work on the board. You may also get a PowerSchool log-in from the office to see updated grades for all assignments.
