The beginning of the school year is a new and fun start for students and parents. It is also a great
opportunity for your child to learn and practice good homework/ study habits.
Homework is a time for students to practice the skills they learn in school. It is important that homework is fully completed and turned in on time each week. A homework packet will be sent home on Monday and are returned to school on Friday. Please encourage your child to take the entire week to complete it. By trying to complete the work in one day, stress is added and your child doesn’t get the daily reinforcement that is required for optimum learning.
Listed below are several ideas which will help your child be successful in completing their homework.
-Students should be seated in a quite place, away from siblings and
-Spend time helping your child read the directions and make sure they
understand what is being asked of them. This will ensure that the homework is being done correctly.
-All homework should be completed in pencil. Only crayons or colored pencil
should be used when students are asked to color. Please do not use markers,
as they bleed through the paper.
-Students should always do their best on all of their homework. It should be neat (trying to color inside
the lines and realistic) with no other markings/drawings on the page.
-Help your child with handwriting by making sure that your child always starts at the top, puts two finger
spaces between each letter or word, and all letter are written between the lines.
-Before your child turns in his/ her homework, help them double check to
make sure it is complete and correct.
Homework that is not complete or has many errors will be sent home to fix and should be turned back in ASAP.
