    I call work at home "practice." How much a student needs depends on his/her skill level. Student A might need more practice with paraphrasing, while student B needs more practice with spelling. The new curriculum allows me time and a venue for assigning individual work based on student need. This is really exciting! Some types of practice at home may include:
    • Finishing Closed Reader practice pages
    • Vocabulary study
    • Outside reading (timed and/or reading logs)
    • Group projects
    • Speech/presentation practice
    • others...
     I try really hard to allow for as much family time as possible. I will let parents know via email when tests, large projects, or papers are due.
