Teachers use homework to reinforce and review curriculum content. Research shows that when homework is turned in to the teacher, graded, and discussed with students, it can improve students' grades and understanding of their schoolwork.
Parents can assist with homework by providing a routine to complete homework. If possible, set up a quiet, comfortable study area with good lighting and the school supplies that your children need. It is critical that you show your children that you think homework is important. Ask to see your children's homework each day and discuss it with them to show support. .
The amount of homework varies by grade level.
If your child consistently takes longer than the recommended time to complete homework, please contact your child's teacher.
Each grade communicates with parents on a consistent basis about their children's homework assignments, via an assignment sheet, homework folder, or other reporting methods. Teachers want students to learn from homework. Tell the teacher if your child thinks the homework is too easy or too hard. This will help the teacher match homework with student ability and maturity levels.
The amount of help you offer your child depends on each child's grade level, knowledge of skills and study habits. First, make sure the child understands the directions by completing a few problems together. Praise right answers, and show how to correct mistakes. Students should generally be able to complete the assignments independently. Avoid "hovering" over your child while they work on homework. You do not want your child to be dependent on you to complete the tasks.
Help older students organize their assignments by recording them on calendars or planners, along with due dates, dates turned in, etc.
