At Coyote Creek, we value homework as an integral part of the learning experience. We consider it an opportunity to reinforce concepts introduced in the classroom as well as an opportunity to help students develop independent organizational skills, time management techniques, effective study habits, and responsibility. We firmly believe that children should learn to love reading and we expect them to read each day as part of their homework. As a shared family/school endeavor, we encourage parents to discuss books with their children and to read aloud to them at all grade levels. Staff members understand students at Coyote Creek are involved in a wide range of extra curricular activities. It is important to create a balance between these activities, quality family time, and homework.
The staff has carefully designed a plan to support this balance with allocated homework time by grade level. If your child is spending an excessive amount of time completing homework, please contact your child's classroom teacher. One way to support your child in being successful with homework is to establish a quiet place in your home where your child will be able to work without distractions. Having a dedicated routine each day to complete homework or time to simply read a book will build good work habits.
While the type of homework may vary, assignments will be purposeful and developmentally appropriate.
