I create a monthly homework packet by running the pages back to back and stapling them together. I pass out the packets on Monday and they are due Friday. I ask that families keep the pages stapled together as a packet. (September’s packet has a brief letter to the family explaining this!)
Each activity should take no longer than 10-15 minutes to complete, depending on the strengths and skills of the student. You can supplement the packet with other activities and books to read.
