Homework

Homework

Londonderry School District has a homework policy of 10 minutes of homework per grade per night in addition to daily reading and math fact practice. Therefore, first graders will have an average of 20-30 minutes of total homework each night. Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday each week. Homework should be completed on the day that it is given and returned to school the next day. In the event that your child is absent for any reason, make-up work will be arranged when your child returns to school. Students who do not have their homework ready to hand in on the date due may be asked to complete it during recess time.

*You are your child's first and best teacher! Please set aside time each day to go over your child's homework assignment, make sure your learner understands the directions, monitor progress, and review the completed assignment for errors. If you see your child making a mistake, please intervene and help. Please remember that the purpose of homework is to provide opportunities to practice and reinforce the skills being taught in the classroom. It would be a disservice to your child to standby and watch him/her making errors. Please feel free to write a me note if you feel your child did not understand the skill covered in the assignment).
