Homework: How Parents Can Help
Homework is a great opportunity for students to practice what they have learned in class and begin to master the subject matter. It is also an opportunity for parents to get involved in their child’s education. Helping children with homework isn’t always easy and making it meaningful to the student requires cooperation and communication among the teachers, students and parents. This parent checklist provides some useful tips on how to help your child develop good study habits and complete their homework successfully:
- Show that you believe education and homework are important.
- Provide guidance.
- Encourage your child to utilize the free homework resources that MCPS provides for all students.
- Work with your child’s teachers to resolve problems and overcome obstacles.
MCPS Parent Guides
The MCPS Parent Guides will give you an overview of the grade level program and explain what your child will be learning in reading and language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. The information in these guides will assist you in providing support for your child throughout the school year.
