Home Learning Activities

Home Learning Connection

Our intention is to make sure there is enough time in our students' days for family time and activities and balance that with time for reading and some real world math. Click the link above to go to our learning connection site.

We'd like students to focus mainly on reading everyday so they have a comfortable, calm space at home to enjoy reading. For the other areas of math and writing we have options for exploration. This will give parents an idea of the areas we are working on in class. If something comes up at home that is a better "real life" experience with math or writing, we'd love for your student to have that time and opportunity instead. (Here is one article that discusses thoughts on student choice and time spent on homework.)

However, if your student decides not to use their time wisely in class, then completing that class work might be required and we'll let you know.

Basically, what we're saying is anything beyond the nightly reading is optional, but we will acknowledge and support their practice and extra interests. There will be projects that will require some work at home throughout the year.

Thank you again for your support.
