Homework Expectations

By far, the most important homework in 4th Grade is independent reading.   Students are expected to read for at least 20 minutes a day, five days a week (but more is great, of course!).  Students are also expected to keep a Reading Journal and to write a summary of what they are reading every two weeks (or when they finish reading a book, whichever comes first).  There will usually be a page of daily math homework, and sometimes projects (such as science) that will require some home study.  In general, students should not expect to spend more than 30-40 minutes on homework on a given day, reading included.
