I’m sure the children ask
parents, “Do we have to have homework?” The answer to that question
is, “Yes, absolutely!” There are many good reasons for having homework.
Here are a few:
To help establish
good study habits
To develop a sense
To practice and
reinforce concepts and skills
To complete work
not finished in class
To make up work if
you are absent
It is very important for the
children to do their homework and hand it in the very next day. There
are times we can get forgetful, or something unexpected comes up, and
we may forget to bring our homework to school. Students will have a
second chance to bring their homework in. If they forget a second time
they will have to miss their playtime to complete it.
Homework will be kept in the
S.T.A.R. Book so papers do not get crumpled and rumpled. Children must
always have their name and date on homework papers. If an assignment
is turned in sloppy it will not be accepted and it will have to be
done over. Neatness is very, very, very important to me. There are
many reasons for this:
I spend a lot of
time correcting papers and LOVE reading students’ work. Neatness makes
this job easier for me.
Being sloppy is a
hard habit to break.
PERSONAL BEST. This shows that you
take great pride in what you do.
DO IT NEATLY THE FIRST TIME,
you will not have to
do it again.
