    Second Grade Homework Policy
             Homework is an important part of your child’s school experience.  Supporting good work habits requires a joint effort.  I will support your child and encourage good work habits at school.  Your child will benefit great    from your support and encouragement at home.
             Homework will be given daily and occasionally on a weekend.  Children are expected to write their daily homework in their green assignment book.  In the beginning of the school year, I will check these books to make sure that the homework is written correctly.  Beginning in January, I will no longer check these books every day.  Please sign, or initial this assignment book each day, so that you are aware of the work being done.
             If a child is absent, please call the school office and try to pick up the homework, perhaps a sibling could bring it home, or another child that lives nearby.
            You can also email me, and if the books are home I can send the pages to you via email.                 Whenever a child misses an assignment a notice will be sent to you.  The homework should be completed for the next day.  Every third missed assignment will result in a detention.


    Spelling homework will be the same each week:

    Monday - Write spelling words 2 times each.

    Tuesday - Word sort. Find a certain way the words are alike, and group them together. Write a label for each group that tells how they are alike. 

    Wednesday - Choose 6 words to write a sentence.

    Thursday - Practice for test.

    If a child is absent from school, please try to get the homework for the day.  I don't mind emailing you the pages, if he/she has the books at home.  You know our spelling homework for each night - so go ahead and do that homework for the absent day.


    Behavior and Discipline Policy

              Your child’s success is very important.  To create and maintain a positive learning environment for all students, I will follow this behavior and discipline policy.
             Good behavior is expected everywhere in school, not only in the classroom.  The rules and regulations will be discussed on the first day of school and a copy of the rules will be sent home to you.  When student disobeys any rule, I will move their clothespin to over to the “slip up,” try a little harder side of our behavior chart.  A note will be sent to you regarding the “slip up.”  Please sign this form and return it to school.  If the “slip up” is more serious, a conduct referral will be sent home to you, or a detention will be given.
           Detention will be issued every third time a clothespin has been moved to the “slip up” side of our chart.
