Last school year was a really big year in my classroom. We started flexible seating you can read more about that adventure HERE , we implemented a Bring Your Own Device program, and we did away with homework. Like I said— BIG year! While each of those three changes contributed to a very different feel in my classroom than years prior, I was particularly nervous about doing away with homework. I know that homework has its place, and I know there are concepts and skills especially in 4th grade!
homework policy letter
Center Academy Homework Policy
Connect with parents through positive communication, and they will reinforce your behavioral and academic goals. PreK—K , 1—2 , 3—5 , 6—8 , 9— Keeping parents informed is a yearlong responsibility, but one that has huge potential to make a positive difference in a child's educational experience. Parents don't need to be sitting in the classroom to help their child, but they do need to know what you expect from their children. Connecting with them through positive communication helps them reinforce the right academic habits and classroom behavior that will help students succeed.
Creating a Homework Policy With Meaning and Purpose
I have written this letter to answer any questions that you may have regarding homework assigned in my classroom. Please discuss this policy with your child. Why do I assign homework? I believe that homework helps reinforce what has been learned in class, prepares students for upcoming lessons, teaches responsibility, and helps students develop positive study habits.
