Thursday PAT: earned review game
Friday review & quiz
Every Monday, students will
copy the weekly homework assignments into their planner. Students and
parents will need to refer to the planner each school night to confirm
the assignment. Every several weeks, I will check students planners

planner before beginning their homework. Students need to establish
a nightly routine of checking their planners to plan their after school
schedule. Homework assignments will be collected on a random basis.
Occasionally, the students will correct their assignments in class.
