Homework Expectations

Homework needs to be meaningful, appropriate and purposeful. The main focus is on practicing skills independently.

Reading is the primary homework in Grade 1 (Below you will find a more detailed description for each subject)Between General studies, French and Hebrew, your child should not have more than 30 minutes of homework per evening (please inform us if this is not the case at your home)

Ivrit:

  • Once we start, the Hebrew reading booklet will be coming home daily.  The homework should not take more than 10 minutes. 
  • Please let me know if it is taking too long (you may write a note in the booklet itself or send me an email).
  • Please remind your child to use his/her finger (or some kind of pointer) to read (this will come in handy as words become more complex).
  • Please sign it every day and remind your child to return it to tote bag.

 

Genesral Studies:

  • Once we start the English reading, it will be coming home daily.  The homework should not take more than 5-10 minutes. 
  • Please let me know if it is taking too long (you may write a note and place it in the note tote or send me an email).
  • The students will have a red homework duo-tang that will have helpful reading strategies, a sight word list to familiarize themselves with and a daily log for you to sign.
  • Alternate between the sight word list and book so that the homework session does not exceed 30 minutes.
  • Please sign it every day and remind your child to return it to their note tote bag.
