Homework is assigned to allow students to practice, master, and enrich skills that have been previously taught. Every Friday, students will receive a homework packet with a reading log, spelling checklist, writing prompt, and math problems. Our expectation is that students read 20 minutes each night and complete a reading response, complete one Spelling activity, and work on math. On Friday, students are to return their homework packet. Students are paid $10.00 for completed homework packets that have a parent signature. In general, homework assignments should not take more than 40minutes per night, not including the 20 minutes of reading, so please expect your child to spend approximately an hour of homework nightly. If your child is having difficulty with homework, please contact the teacher.
Links which support all areas of the 4th grade curriculum can be found at www.pisd.edu. If you are looking for additional support or challenges for your child, practice math facts, hunt for spelling words, read for additional minutes,complete research on a favorite topic, or any other activity your child thinks of that can help him or her practice skills.
Rasor's Positive Behavior System:
Always Doing your best
When students use STAR behavior traits, they will be praised and receive “Star Bucks” that can be redeemed for various rewards. In the instance that students are not behaving appropriately, they will be asked to model and practice the expected behavior. If necessary, parents will be contacted.
Teachers will accept and return phone calls from parents within 24 hours. If you have an emergency, please leave a message with Mrs. Munoz in the front office and she will make sure the teacher sees it right away. Parents can help their children by checking their agendas each night.
All communication from Rasor will come home in the Friday folders. This includes notes from the PTA, graded papers, and any other material that needs to be viewed by our parents.
