    Did you know ?

    Homework can turn into "homeplay" when you support your child and do your best to make learning at home a fun experience. Use the following tips to help your child make the most of homework experiences.

    • Set a regular time and place to do the homework. Allow your child to help make this decision so she or he is part of the decision-making process.
    • Help your child find a quiet and comfortable place to work. Encourage him or her to avoid interruptions. Turn off the TV !
    • Provide the necessary tools such as paper, pencils, crayons, and scissors.
    • When necessary, read the directions to your child and make sure they are understood.
    • If necessary, demonstrate how to complete the homework before having your child try it alone.
    • Whenever appropriate, sign your child's homework paper.  This sends a message to the teacher that you are involved in your child's learning.
    • If you have any questions regarding assignments, ask the teacher.
    • If your child has difficulty, stop. Write a note to the teacher explaining the problem and send with your child.  Do not do the homework for them.
    • Praise your child's efforts and keep the atmosphere positive.
