Smarter Balanced Guide
If your son or daughter loses a stripe, print out this form, complete with your child, and send back to school.
It is an expectation of our program that students work or study each night to support the skills they are learning at school. The guideline we use is 10 minutes for each grade level (2nd graders work for 20 minutes, 3rd graders work for 30 minutes, etc.) We often are given the question, “What should my student work on if he/she finished his/her reading homework at school?”
Here are some suggestions for wise ways to utilize this homework time:
1. Practice math online. Students can log onto their GoMath account, and go to MegaMath. Here, they choose from six activities. Under each activity, they choose a skill to work on, and a game loads that corresponds with that skill. Please ask your math teacher if you need guidance in choosing the skills to choose.
2. Read a book of choice and discuss the book with an adult, focusing on the comprehension strategy that they are learning at school. As teachers, we will try to keep you updated weekly in our newsletters with the comprehension strategies we are working on.
3. Play a math game! Your son or daughter is constantly learning new math games at school, and most can be recreated and played at home without too much time or effort.
4. Practice writing vocabulary words in sentences. Challenge your student to create creative sentences or a story that show their understanding of the words.
