Homework: As children enter kindergarten they are eager and ready to learn. They enjoy age-appropriate homework with assignments that provide successful learning experiences. When kindergarten homework is fun and meaningful it lays the foundation for good work habits in later years. Positive homework or homeplay helps establish the home-school connection and involves parents as partners in their child's daily experiences.
- set a regular time and place to do homework
- help your child find a quiet and comfortable place to work
- encourage him or her to avoid interruptions (turn off the TV)
- have necessary tools on hand such as paper, pencils, crayons, scissors and the homework calendar
- assist your child by demonstrating how to complete the homework if necessary
- if you have questions, ask the teacher
- PRAISE YOUR CHILD FOR HIS OR HER EFFORTS AND ALWAYS KEEP A POSITIVE WORKING ATMOSPHERE
