Check to make sure your child has written down assignments for the day, and get the tough work out of the way first.
Teach your child to check their work frequently.
Establish a regular time and place to complete homework.
Minimize distractions such as phone calls, television, or computers during homework time.
Help your child learn to keep their materials and homework assignments organized in their folder.
Get in the habit of double-checking to be sure homework, library books, and school supplies are put in the backpack before leaving the house in the morning.Parents may review their child's homework to make sure they have completed all assignments, and that it is done correctly. This will help your child begin to do this themselves.Homework ScheduleHomework should be done each day. Please help your child find time to read for 30 minutes each day (can be broken into 2 or 3 time periods if needed). Also, students should complete a Dreambox lesson if they haven't finished at least 1 lesson per day in class. For math, students are expected to practice their math facts (multiplication, division, as well as addition and subtraction). This practice is essential to prepare students for the upper grades, as the complexity of their problems increases greatly.Each evening, please mark on the Behavior/Homework Calendar to verify that the practice was completed. and initial the circle to show that you have seen their daily behavior report.
