Oakfield-Alabama Elementary School Homework Expectations
Oakfield-Alabama Elementary School Homework Policy:
The Oakfield-Alabama Elementary School allows our students to shine by making efficient use of time during the school day. Our goal is for families and children to spend time together by participating in a variety of activities, in addition to scholastic ones, in order to develop the total child. Weekly practice will be assigned for students to continue their learning at home. Students are encouraged to set weekly goals for themselves to promote intrinsic motivation. Through the habits of Beginning with the End in Mind and Putting First Things First, students are able to manage time and take responsibility for their own learning.
In Third Grade, we want to make homework as stress free as possible! The homework that will be expected of our third graders will enhance what we teach in the classroom and will be as authentic as possible.

EVERY NIGHT! Being fluent in multiplication will
absolutely support the more in depth math
later in the year. If your child is missing this piece,
he/she will struggle in math later on. Practicing on
IXL and Xtra Math will also be very beneficial.
ELA: Reading with your child, even in third grade, is highly
beneficial. They are still kids soaking up everything
they come across. Listening to your child read gives
you an insight to where he/she is as a reader and
allows you, as a parent, to support him/her. It allows
your child to ask questions about the content that is
being read. We want this!
Spelling: Your child will be given differentiated spelling lists
that are specific to each learner. Throughout the
week, your child should practice sorting and spelling
