Math Probes are a weekly assignment. They consist of 4 pages of basic mathematical concepts such as basic calculation, problem solving, linear measurement, geometry, and time. The probes are given 2 pages at a time: pages 1 and 2 then pages 3 and 4. Students are given 2 days to complete pages 1 and 2, and 2 days to complete pages 3 and 4. They are scored with the goal of improving over time. They also are a great indication of area weaknesses which need to be addressed. 

Spelling is another weekly assignment. The goal of the spelling homework is to allow students the chance to write new words multiple times. This will enable them to recognize these words in their reading and be able to use them correctly in their writing. Students are given ample time to complete assignments.
