    HOMEWORK:
    Each Monday, your child should bring home a Weekly Homework Calendar on colored paper that explains all the homework for the week. Your child is expected to read each night and you should record the number of minutes on their Weekly Homework Calnedar and you should sign the bottom. Your child should practice reading fluency each night for 1 minute and record their score. They will complete the reading comprehension questions on the back side in complete sentences and return it on Friday. Please review your child's Problem Set from our daily math lesson each evening and complete it if they did not finish it in class. Daily Math Homework will come home and it is optional if you would like your child to have addtional practice. Those math papers can stay at home and do not need to be returned to school. 
    All reading homework is due in class on Friday. I check their colored reading fluency page and the comprehension questions and that their Weekly Homework Calendar is signed for each night of reading.
    Homework is not graded in second grade, but it is a really important responsibility to reinforce our daily learning. Students will earn a point for turning in all of their homework and lose a Dojo point for not completing homework.
