Parental interest in a child’s schoolwork is one key to success. Parents are encouraged to discuss with their children the daily school activities and to review together any assignments brought home. As a rule, homework assignments in Grades 1 and 2 tend to be informal in nature and may include daily reading, the rehearsal of basic facts or the completion of unfinished class work. In Grades 3 to 6, students may be assigned homework at the discretion of the teacher, and in general will be of the reading or study type. Providing a quiet environment at home for students to work on assignments and enjoy leisure reading will help students achieve success.
