Students will have homework every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Most assignments should not take any longer than 30 minutes. However, students work at different paces, so I can't guarantee that your child will finish his homework within 30 minutes. The following are some things you as a parent can do to help your child become a better student.
1. Have a set time each evening for your child to do homework.
2. Provide a quiet place where the student will not be distracted or interrupted.
3. Be available to help your child, but let him do the thinking
and the work whenever possible.
4. Do not be afraid to let him bring his homework back to school unfinished.
If he does not understand something, and you are unable to assist him, I want to know what it is that he doesn't understand. I can then give him the individual attention that he needs.
5. Encourage and praise your child for the effort that she puts forth. If she
doesn't understand, let her know that it is all right and that the important
thing is to put forth the effort. If she keeps trying, she will be successful.
6. Finally, read, read, read! Research proves that students can improve their
overall intelligence by reading. Read to your child. Read anything that
interests your child. If a child doesn't enjoy reading, they are going to have a
difficult time in school. Please don't allow that to happen.
