5th and 6th Grade
Language Arts Homework Expectations
All students must read at least 180 min (3 hours) every week.
Reading logs will be completed at home and checked daily. Students are expected to read 30 minutes every night and 60 minutes over the weekend.
This year, most written reading responses will be completed during school. Fifth graders begin the year by practicing summary writing, while sixth graders are expected to support claims, or ideas, with specific evidence and analysis. If responses are not completed during school, students will need to finish them at home for homework.
In addition, students will be responsible writing in their Writer's Notebooks each week, including editing and completing an editing checklist. Fifth graders will be required to write one full page each week while sixth graders will complete two full pages of writing.
Spelling words are assigned Mondays and work is due on Fridays. Each week, students have a menu of activities to complete in addition to grammar worksheets. Spelling tests are on Friday.
