All homework should be done with an adult and in pencil!
Homework is always due the school day after it is assigned.
Once we are into the routine of school, students will have daily homework. Though they will have a few projects as homework at the beginning of the year, nightly homework will not begin for a matter of weeks.
Homework is a very important part of Kindergarten and, as it is tied to reading and phonemic awareness, a crucial part of their literacy development. It is expected that homework is completed with a parent each night.
In addition to the student's assigned homework, it is expected that parents read to and/ or with their children a minimum of 15 minutes every night. Again, this is an important step in ensuring the child gets appropriate exposure to literature. Just think, 15 minutes a day for the entire year is 5,475 minutes. Of course, you want your child to be 5, 475 minutes ahead, not behind!
Any other homework is designed to be reasonable at 5-10 minutes. Enjoy this time. These primary years may be the only time your children come home cheering about homework!
