Students at MAJ have homework Monday through Thursday evenings. Here are a few hints to help maximize your child’s homework experience!
Provide a consistent and quiet place for your children to complete their homework every night.
üAsk your children if they understand their homework. If they do not, work a few examples together.
üUtilize the APS Homework Hotline. It’s free and available from 3:00pm-5:00pm, Monday – Thursday evenings.
üAsk your children to show you their homework after the teacher returns it, to learn where they're having trouble and where they're doing well. See if your children did the work correctly.
ü Stay in touch with your children’s teacher. Ask about their class and what they are studying. Ask teachers how you can support what they are studying (flash cards, spelling, projects, etc.).
Remember, you and your child’s teacher want the same thing—to help your child learn.
Don't do your children's work. Help your children to learn independently.
üShow your children that you think homework is important. If you are at work during homework time, ask to see their work when you get home.
Help older students organize their assignments by recording them on calendars or agendas, along with due dates, dates turned in, etc.
