    Students are expected to complete homework each night. Second graders should do their homework independently and only ask for help after they have given the assignment or problem their best effort. In an effort to promote good work habits, students will copy homework assignments daily. Please be sure they use the assignment pad to guide them through the homework routine. All work is expected to be handed in neatly and on time.


    Please check homework pads daily, as assignments may change.

    MONDAY--Fundations- 3 times each

    TUESDAY--Fundations- ABC Order

    WEDNESDAY-- Fundations- 5 Sentences

    THURSDAY-- Fundations- Review for quiz

    No Homework

    * Read EVERY NIGHT for 20 minutes

    *Depending on lessons taught in class,additional work in Math and/or Language Arts may be sent home if reinforcement is needed.
    * Although it is not assigned daily, the consistent practice of basic addition and subtraction facts ( and multiplication once introduced) is beneficial for all students to build fact fluency and quick mental math skills.

    *Give notices to parents!

    * Schedule your work so that you can get it done, have some fun, and go to bed on time.
