***Having trouble with homework?? Homework should not take longer than thirty minutes!! Try to follow these simple suggestions: *Mixed Review Language Arts, Math, & Cursive Homework--Complete showing work (10 minutes) *Review Vocabulary words-this should be saying the word and discussing any words they don't know. We go over these daily in class so they get most of the "studying" done at school. (5 minutes) *Spelling-Review words every night (5 minutes) *Study math facts-(5 minutes) *RAH-15 minutes/4 nights-READING IS A VERY IMPORTANT HABIT!! This could be a cuddle time before bed. It is always good to snuggle before bed and read together!! I-Station counts as reading too! :)
