Reflection: Homework Immigration Week Lesson Five of Six - Section 6: Home Activity


Work that is completed at home is one way to see how a student is performing.  My parents have been really good about telling me if their child has difficulty, or is taking too long to complete home activities.  However, I never know how much, or how little, support a student receives when completing work at home.  Therefore, I complete all of my formal assessing, or "graded assignments", at school.  I like sending home assignments like the reading slip activity seen here, because it provides review and reinforcement of things we've covered in class.  It gives families an opportunity to see the kids of skills, activities, and texts we are working with.
