Mr. Samuels ** Class 405 ** 2014-2015 **** Ability + Effort = Achievement

Welcome New Class 405

Hope Everyone Had a Great Summer

Welcome class 405. I am looking forward to a great year. This website will be a great tool to keep track of homework and what is going on in class.


Homework serves an important role for 4th grade students. Studies and my experience show that 4th grade students should do about an hour of homework a night. This amount can vary depending on a child's abilities. Homework helps to reinforce the lesson, gives a child practice, and the teacher feedback about the child's understanding of a topic.
It is important that parents and guardians make their children accountable for giving their best effort on homework by taking an active interest in it. This goes beyond merely asking if homework has been completed. Rather asking the child to describe what they did and how they did it.
Homework will always be posted on this website, so parents and guardians may stay aware of assignments.
