Homework can be a stressful activity in any family. At the same time, constructive homework assignments are an integral part of a child’s education that are used to assess progress, reinforce learning, and expand skills. Good homework habits lead to better study skills, responsibility and self-discipline. So what’s the best way to help a child? How much should parents get involved in homework?
Join Allyson Israel, KDS assistant principal, and Rabbi Aaron Frank, KDS head of school for a “Kinneret Conversation” which focuses on how to best engage children in the homework process and make it a positive experience that will pay off with a lifetime of great work habits.
The conversation is geared toward parents of children in grades two through eight, is for the entire community and will take place on Jan. 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the newly refurbished classrooms at Kinneret Day School.
