A few things all parents of my students need to know:
In every unit of study, students will have a set of study notes that they are supposed to review and study every night.
Students need to read from their study notes for about 15 minutes each night.
These notes are designed to help clarify material covered in class and to prepare for their next unit test which is always a major grade. A calendar showing test dates is located on my web page.
If your child says they don't have homework, that is simply not true. They have homework for Social Studies EVERY day. It doesn't take long, and the rewards are great. Please see that they are doing their reading.
Students must be reading from the study notes EVERY night, no exceptions.
