GENERAL HOMEWORK TIPS FOR PARENTS

 

  • Make sure your child has a quiet, well-lit place to do homework.

  • Make sure the materials your child needs, such as paper, pencils  are available.

  • Establish a set time each day for doing homework. Don't let your child leave homework until just before bedtime. 

  • Be positive about homework.

  • Let your child take a short break if she is having trouble keeping her mind on an assignment.

  • Reward progress in homework.
    If your child has been successful in homework completion and is working hard, celebrate that success with a special event.

Welcome to Room 34!

 

Dear Parents,

    Welcome to third grade at Kaiser!  I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child the first week of school. Please plan to attend Back to School Night on Thursday, September 6th. My presentation will begin at 6:30 in my classroom (34).  At this meeting I will review my goals, curriculum, homework plan, and discipline polices. 

    Please check your child's backpack daily the first week of school for important paperwork and reminders. The official homework packet will be sent home the second week of school. Each week there will be news and reminders listed at the bottom of the homework cover sheet. 

   Many classroom supplies will be provided for the students. The Kaiser office has posted a list of suggested school supplies for each grade level on the PFO website. Often parents and students will ask, "What do I need to bring to school?"  You don't need to bring anything to school, because all supplies will be provided.  However, many students like to bring a few things of their own.  If you would like to here is a list of things to bring and a few things to leave at home:

 

I will provide:

A pencil box

Pencils

Red pens

Work folder

Notebook

Homework Folder
