About Homework in Fourth Grade:
Fourth graders receive homework most weeknights from Monday through Thursday. The purpose of homework is to review skills and concepts that have already been taught at school.
A typical night of homework might include:
- A short Spelling activity to review words, definitions, or spelling patterns. A spelling test will be given Fridays in school.
- A sheet of review and practice activities from Everyday Math
- Reading a “just right” book for at least 20-30 minutes and recording it in a log.
At times, long-term projects at school will involve homework as well. Homework is differentiated in a variety of ways to meet the specific learning needs of individual students.
Students are expected to check in their homework with a teacher when they arrive at school each morning.
