Homework

When you do your homework please always remember to edit your work. This means that you read your written work and correct all the mistakes that you see. If you have a dictionary at home you should use it for homework. Your homework should always be done in your best handwriting. Merci!

I'll post the homework for the week in this section of my webpage. I'll post the weekly spelling list as well in the "liste de vocabulaire" page of the website.

Please have your child check his/her agenda daily for homework assignments. If the homework posted here is not the same as the one recorded in your child's agenda, then the homework in the agenda takes precedence.

I would like to bring to your attention my Friday homework assignments. Every Friday I invite the children to have a conversation, showcase a new skill, or ask their family a question regarding something that we discussed in class that week. This is absolutely optional, but I see this as an opportunity for your family to discuss a topic that we studied in class. Hopefully this might help to get past the typical answer to "What did you do in school today?"

Homework in Room 212

Children in 3rd grade French Immersion will be assigned French homework on Monday and Wednesday. They should spend about 15 to 20 minutes completing their French homework. If your child spends significantly more or less than 20 minutes on French homework please let me know.

Students also have to read in French for at least 15 minutes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.

My objectives in assigning homework are:

  • To develop responsibility and sound study habits
  • To reinforce and strengthen skills taught in class

When I check homework I will therefore look for:

  • Accurate spelling of high frequency words from 1st and 2nd grade (and 3rd grade as the year progresses).
  • Sentence semantics and construction (grammar, length)
  • Capitalization and punctuation
  • Quality of handwriting (letter formation, neatness)

With these criteria in mind I will use the following marking system for homework:

V++ You went above and beyond what was expected.

V+ Your work is complete and it shows your best effort.

V Your work is missing information and you didn't do your best work.

V- Your work is very incomplete and shows very

little effort.

Please keep in mind that 3rd graders need support with homework particularly in the areas of time management and organization (proper workspace, packing after completion). Thank you very much for your support.

We are done with our reading log program for the year. We are now working on a book report. A letter regarding this project went home and is also in the reading log tab of this website. I know that we are up for a treat when those dioramas come to school. Your children are very creative! 3rd graders are just beginning to learn to plan for long term project. Thank you for supporting your child meeting the deadlines for this project.

Have a great week end.
