What can I do if my child has difficulty with their Spanish homework?
Everything that your child needs for the completion of Spanish homework should be found in the Spanish section of his/her binder. Homework assignments review class lessons, and NEVER concern new material. Vocabulary words and grammatical constructions needed for homework assignments will have been discussed and practiced in class; therefore, there should be lists or notes in your child's binder. Additional dictionaries are not necessary. If your child tells you that they don't know how to do their work, you might remind them: "What do you have in the Spanish section of your binder that might help you?"Back to Top
