• Homework Expectations

    Mrs. Short's 5th Grade ELA Block




    Families always ask me- does my student have homework?

    The answer is- YES! Students WILL have homework (Monday-Thursday). The amount of homework will vary depending on how productive they are during the school day. With our virtual classroom open from 9-2 daily, it does not leave as much time to work in class as we would in person. So students WILL need to work independently after 2pm to complete homework assignments. Homework should not take more than a hour at minimum (this includes reading daily for at least 20 minutes!). If your student is struggling with any assignment, open communication is KEY. I cannot help if I am not aware of their struggles!
