Homework Tips for Parents:
• Assume that your children will have homework each night.
• Ask your children if they understand their homework.
• Ask 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.
• Don't do your children's work for them. Help them learn how do it themselves. Familarize yourself with the statewide POWER Library databases like SIRS Discoverer so you can help your children benefit from using them.
• Check out Learning Express Library's Elementary and Middle School Learning Centers for help with Math, Reading and Writing skils.
