Room 206 Assignments 2012-2013

Room 206 will be busy with book reports, year-long projects and various writing assignments. In general, homework will be assigned when it makes sense and enhances the depth of student understanding. Here are subject categories and expectations for school and home:

Reading: There will be ongoing literature circles and other reading throughout the year at school. Students should read for pleasure every day at home and have a book to read at school during free reading time. Reports (written, oral, etc.) will be assigned monthly (except December).

Writing: There will be many writing assignments (in addition to book reports) that students will work on at school and at home. Students must SKIP LINES or DOUBLE SPACE to leave room for peer and teacher comments. Papers will be returned to students to redo if lines are not skipped. Writing assignments will utilize the five kinds of writing from the Collins Writing Program.

Math: Students will change classrooms for math. Sixth graders will have either Becky, Katrina or Sara. Fifth graders will have either Matt, Carrie or Colin. Each teacher has their own homework and classroom expectations - if you have questions please see the math teacher. Students should bring their math book to class every day.

Spelling: Spelling is taught using the Words Their Way curriculum. Students will be assessed in September and assigned an instructional level (typically six different groups). Students will work with their small groups each week studying the words and take an assessment on Friday (there will not be spelling during weeks in which there is no school on Friday).



The following documents were sent home during the first week of the year as an overal guide / syllabus (this information is also on the website):
