What Do Students Need from Their Family?
Give your child praise for effort and completing assignments. Encourage him or her to try their hardest on all projects and assignments.
Encourage your child to do their work independently, but be available to help when needed.
Set aside time each day for homework and chores. You may want to use a calendar to keep track of due dates and tasks.
- INVOLVEMENT and SUPPORT
Talk to your child about school and homework. Ask your student to share their homework, projects and other school work with you. Ask how things are going. Be willing to contact their teacher when problems arise.
Help your student prepare for spelling tests or other tests by quizzing them at home.
Set expectations for:
- when homework is done
- when your child may watch TV
- play video games
- play on the computer
- talk on the phone.
If your child does not have homework, have him or her read for at least 30 minutes.
