There are a few things the students need to do at home:  we have daily math homework, which is always due the following day.  There is also one spelling homework most every week, which is due Thursday of that week.  Once every two weeks your child will need to present a news article to the class (I will provide newspapers).  Finally, please encourage your child to read at home -- 15 minutes per day is a guideline.  Fourth graders are expected to read 25 books during the school year.
