Our philosophy on homework is research based. Homework is about quality, not quantity. The research has shown that there is a strong correlation between reading to or with children every day and increased student achievement. We also believe that having a solid grasp of math facts with fluency will also help your child be successful when approaching new mathematical concepts. You will find that our required homework touches on these two very important skills. Because we want to foster a love of learning we have also included a list of optional extension activities that can build upon the skills we have taught in the classroom.
