Our ACE team works hard to help students utilize effective study skills. We also encourage families to take an active part in their children’s academic progress. Here are some practical tips found on www.Parents-and-Community to empower parents at home.
o There are probably many ways that parents can offer direct homework help, whether it's teaching numbers and letters, practicing reading, or helping with projects. Keep abreast of classroom activities and homework.
o Parents can keep in touch with teachers to make sure their children are finishing their homework. They can ask their children if they have any homework and make sure they set aside enough time to do it.
Provide a good work space
o Provide a clean, quiet work space to read or do their homework. Even if it is a simple table and chair, children will concentrate better with a defined place to study.
Find a tutor
o If parents cannot directly help with homework, locate a tutor to help their children and answer any questions.
