This year you can help your child by being involved in their learning throughout the week. This includes helping your child to stay up-to-date with homework, studying and preparing for tests. Really a big emphasis over the next ten months is each students ability to produce high-quality independent work. As students prepare this year for Grade Four, it will be more about what each child is able to demonstrate in their understanding of the topics we are learning as the year progresses. There will be time for collaboration exercises throughout the year, however, a large emphasis will be put on producing individual work.

This year students need to be able to demonstrate how to take ownership for their learning. They need to regularly practise how to take responsibility.  The more your child can do for themselves this year, the better. Learning to solve their own problems, making use of what they know and also taking initiative will help. You can help at home by emphasizing these things, and giving your child as much responsibility as they can handle for their age.

We have 19 students this year in our class. Please know that if I have a concern about your child’s progress, I will most certainly contact you for an appointment. You are also encouraged to make an appointment yourself, if you have things that you’d like to discuss in person.

Due to the number of families I will be working with this year, I won’t be able to speak with everyone each week, but I am most certainly available to discuss any questions you have or concerns throughout the year.

I am not a believer in children spending hours and hours on homework every night. Each child should have some downtime in the evening, an opportunity to play or family time, and a time for finishing any assignments that are due.

Your child should have around a half an hour of homework each night. Here is what this half an hour of “work” could look like:

– Reading their at-home reading book (and logging their time read)
– Studying spelling words for their test on Friday (or Thursday if Friday is a holiday)
– Studying for a test or quiz
– Contributing to an online class discussion on Google Classroom
– Working on EQAO practice questions
