Home Program Homework
When done right, homework provides fun and effective ways for students to practice key skills so that class time can be spent on more complex projects and lessons. Practicing what has been learned during the day through homework helps deepen student understanding and improves fluency. In the younger grades, when students are doing homework with their families, homework provides parents and guardians a window into the curriculum and how their child is responding. In the older grades, homework helps students sharpen their executive functioning skills and gives them time to develop independent thinking which deepens class engagement.
At Park Day School, we strive to create an environment where educators and families work together to support learning at home and school. We all want what is best for students—for them to enjoy learning, to build from success and persevere through challenges, to become reflective and critical thinkers.
