Should I correct my child�s spelling on homework?
For spelling homework, spelling words should always be corrected when mistakes are made. For everything else, our advice is that you encourage your child to sound out words he/she is unsure of, and show your child how close he/she was by writing correct spelling of the word. This gives your child opportunities to practice using the rules of spelling and phonics being taught at school. Seeing the correct spelling helps your child to learn a new word. You can also encourage your child to use a dictionary to look up words. Children this age usually enjoy using the dictionary to find words.Back to Top
Can my child wear a coat in class?
Outer garments such as coats, jackets, or button up shirts are not worn in the classroom. The school sweater or sweatshirt is worn for warmth. Usually children this age coming in from outside get involved with what is going on around them that they forget to take off their coats and I more than likely remind them to hang it up in their locker.Back to Top
