Ready, Set, Breakfast!

"Eat your breakfast. It's the most important meal of the day!" Why are parents always saying that?

Well, imagine you're a car. After a long night of sleeping, your fuel tank is empty. Breakfast is the fuel that gets you going so you can hit the road.

What Should You Eat?

Any breakfast is better than no breakfast, but try not to have doughnuts or pastries all the time. They're high in calories, sugar, and fat. They also don't contain the nutrients a kid really needs. And if you have a doughnut for breakfast, you won't feel full for long.

Just like with other meals, try to eat a variety of foods, including:

  • grains (breads and cereals)
  • protein (meats, beans, and nuts)
  • fruits and vegetables
  • milk, cheese, and yogurt

How Can I Help My Child With Homework?

Most teachers assign homework on a regular basis because practice is needed before children fully understand new skills or concepts. Homework also increases the amount of learning time available and allows students to do more in-depth learning.

Here are some general guidelines for helping with homework:

  • Reward progress; use lots of praise; display good work.
     
  • Find out how much and what type of homework is assigned in each class, how students are expected to prepare it and turn it in, and what students can do when they don't understand something; help your child manage the workload by dividing it into small doses.
     
  • Help your child develop a homework schedule that he or she can stick to.
     
  • Talk to your child each day about homework assignments; go over work; see if it's complete; ask questions about it. But don't do your child's homework yourself.
     
  • Provide a suitable place for study (if possible, make it quiet and away from the distractions of TV, phone, and loud music).
     
  • Avoid making homework a punishment.

How Can I Make Our Home a Good  Place for My Child To Learn?

  • Have high expectations for your child's learning and behavior, both at home and at school.
     
  • Praise and encourage your child.
     
  • Emphasize effort and achievement, and be a role model for getting work done before play.
     
  • Establish rules and routines in the home.
     
  • Monitor television viewing.
     
  • Limit after-school jobs and activities.
     
  • Encourage your child to share information about school and respond with empathy.
     
  • If you don't do anything else, read to your young child or have him or her read to you every night. Encourage older children to read by reading yourself and by having interesting and appropriate materials available.

Math Homework Tips for Parents

  • Encourage your child to use a daily math assignment book.
  • Follow the progress your child is making in math. Check with your child daily about his homework.
  • If you don't understand your child's math assignments, engage in frequent communication with his or her teacher.
  • If your child is experiencing problems in math, contact the teacher to learn whether he or she is working at grade level and what can be done at home to help improve academic progress.
  • Request that your child's teacher schedule after-school math tutoring sessions if your child really needs help.
  • Advocate with the principal for the use of research-based peer tutoring programs for math. These tutoring programs have proven results, and students really enjoy them.
  • Use household chores as opportunities for reinforcing math learning such as cooking and repair activities.
  • Try to be aware of how your child is being taught math, and don't teach strategies and shortcuts that conflict with the approach the teacher is using. Check in with the teacher and ask what you can do to help. Ask the teacher about online resources that you can use with your child at home.
  • At the beginning of the year, ask your child's teacher for a list of suggestions that will enable you to help your child with math homework.
