4th Grade Homework Expectations
**Denotes that this is part of the requirement for participating in weekly "Fun Friday" activity.
Math (Daily, 15-20 minutes): Math homework should be completed to the best of the student's ability. If the student is struggling with any portion of the homework please leave those problems unfinished, and we can discuss questions the following day in class.
**Reading Log (Mon-Thurs, 15-30 minutes): For the reading logs students should read 20 minutes for each log, then complete a 3-4 sentence response. Since students have to read for their guided reading group, they may use the time they read for their reading group to fulfill the reading log satisfaction as well.
Guided Reading (varies; contact guided reading teacher for more details): This will vary from teacher to teacher, but generally the expectation is that students are completing the assigned reading, and completing the corresponding assignment (response to questions, write a summary of the assigned reading, etc).
Music (varies; contact music teacher for more details): For homework expectations/questions/concerns please contact Ms. Brame at email@example.com.
Spelling (Daily, 5-10 minutes): Students should utilize quick, daily practices to ensure students master weekly skills and accurate spelling of words.
**Planners (Mon-Thurs): Planners need to be viewed and signed by parents.
Ms. Hoehn's Classroom Expectations:
1. Show your C.A.R.E.S.
2. Do your best!
3. Treat others as you wish to be treated
4. Have a positive attitude
Why Classroom Dojo?
Classroom Dojo is positive reward program we use in 4th grade to reinforce C.A.R.E.S.
How it Works:
Students earn 6 points daily for their positive behavior, but can also lose 1 point for every check they receive. Students can also receive beyond their 6 daily points for going "above and beyond" by demonstrating an aspect of C.A.R.E.S. The more points students earn throughout the year the higher the belt level they advance which ties in to how they are developing socially and behaviorally.
What are points used for?
As an added incentive students can use their earned dojo points for certain privleges such as extra recess time, use the "teacher chair" for a day, etc. If you would like to view resources we use in the classroom for classroom dojo please see the "More" tab.
