Different types of homework has been shown to benefit different populations.
The type of program you work in may also dictate the type of homework you send home, if any.
Many parents and administrators are all for it, many teachers are against it.
The topic of homework for young children is one that is fiercely debated in the field of early childhood education.
Here at Pre-K Pages, I'm committed to helping teachers just like you teach better, save time, and live more by providing you with everything you need to create a fun and engaging learning environment, lesson plans, and activities for your little learners.
As an early childhood trainer, I have spoken to thousands of teachers in person at popular early childhood conferences such as Frog Street Splash, I Teach K! I was honored to receive the 2012 CCAEYC Trainer of the Year Award.
To implement a successful Pre-K Homework Program in your classroom you must meet with all the parents to explain your program.
Do not expect your program to be successful without this critical component.
The homework calendars are kept in our BEAR books and carried back and forth by the child each day in his or her backpack.
If this method is too much for you then you may prefer the simpler Reading Log method.
