What's going on in life Skills??
This summer I stumbled across a post from a fellow educator regarding homework. In order to maximize our instruction time and prevent delays in other planned lessons/activities, I have decided to adopt this same style policy. With credit being given to Mrs. Brandy Young, the homework policy for this school year will be as follows:
HOMEWORK will only consist of work that your student did not finish during the school day. There will not be formally assigned homework.
Research has been unable to prove that homework improves student performance. Rather, I ask that you spend your evening doing things that are proven to correlate with student success. Eat dinner as a family, read together, play outside, complete household chores, and get your child to bed early.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to an excellent school year!
