This year, the fourth grade team will be utilizing a widely endorsed metric for assigning homework, the 10-minute rule. This rule dictates that children should receive 10 minutes of homework per grade level—so for fourth grade, that would be 40 minutes a day. A recommended breakdown of this time is provided below.

    20 minutes of Silent/Guided Reading

    10 minutes of multiplication or division fluency practice

    10 minutes of word work (Amplify lessons are a great resource for additional practice at home)
