Due Date Assignment Description
5/15/2009 Second Grade Homework Policy (DIRECTIONS FOR WRITING SPELLING SENTENCES AT BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.)

Because we would like the children to get used to doing homework on a
routine basis, and to develop good study habits at home, we believe in
regular, scheduled homework assignments. Your child may occasionally bring
home unfinished daily work, or a short additional assignment from us.

Our schedule for the first half of this school year is listed below.
Your child will write the detailed information about that day's particular
scheduled assignment each morning on his/her A.N. (Assignment Notepad).
Please check it daily, as we will often have your child write "up-to-the-
minute" information about school/classroom events, deadlines, changes, etc.

In Second Grade, it is a requirement that the A.N. be signed by a parent
DAILY. While we expect the children to take ownership for their assignment
notepads, ultimately we consider this responsibility to be a shared one
between you and your child. Please find a reliable system/routine that will
work for both of you, so that this critical task becomes automatic and
stress-free. (This includes getting the notepad returned to the
backpack!)

DIRECTIONS FOR WRITING YOUR SPELLING HOMEWORK SENTENCES FOR THIRD AND FOURTH QUARTERS


1. Have fun with your sentences! They don’t have to be serious! They
can be silly and surprising! Use your imagination! (Oh yes…but they STILL
have to make sense!)

2. Use at least two different spelling words in each sentence. You may
use more if you would like, as long as the sentence is good.

3. Use up all ten regular spelling words. Use of Bonus Words is
optional.

4. Use each spelling word only one time. If you have to use a word
more than once every so often, that’s okay.

5. Underline the spelling words with a ruler.

6. Be sure that each sentence begins with a capital letter.

7. Be sure that each sentence ends with a period, question mark or
exclamation point.

8. Read each sentence out loud to see if it makes sense. If it does
not, you may have to change part of it.

9. BE NEAT. ERASE MISTAKES ALL THE WAY.

10. USE REALLY NICE PRINTING. You will be asked to rewrite your
sentences if the work you turn in is sloppy.
