FAQ ‘s: Daily Language Homework

5-A-Day Language lessons should be practiced on a daily basis (Monday-Thursday).  Each week has language skill items that will be assigned for homework. These items are a spiral review of skills taught and practiced from grades 6-8. The lessons are aligned with Common Core standards. Each week, students will be assessed using a Weekly Assessment, which aligns to each week’s focus. Some students may need additional support at home and/or in school to master these standards.
