Homework

The purpose of homework is to strengthen learning that occurs during the school day. You may notice that your children come home quite tired each day as they are working very hard at school.  At Monticello we value the central importance of work, and encourage our students to appreciate rigor and take pride in their accomplishments.

Between the ages of 5 and 8 homework consists of daily reading practice. Please read with your child at least 15 minutes each day.  Parents may also wish to help their young child learn to study spelling words and review math facts.    

Between the ages of 9 and 12 students homework is in the form of math, reading, writing and spelling assignments.  Students will also have research projects, presentations,  and papers from time to time.  Quality of student work is valued at our school.  Please encourage your child to do their own work and puzzle out their own solutions.  Providing a set time for homework and a quiet place free of distractions will help make homework assignments go smoothly.

Our teachers main purpose is to help all our students learn.  If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher.  Home and school working together makes a winning combination.
