Children need time to participate in family, sports, and community activities. Excessive homework can rob children of these activities, as well as result in poor sleep habits. Research has not been able to demonstrate a consistent, positive correlation between homework, learning, and improved test scores at the elementary level. For this reason we do not have assigned homework. A parent may choose to have a student work on a Foundations class at home or while traveling, but we will not require it.
Ideas for Fun Family Activities
We offer parents ideas for fun, hands-on activities they can do with their children that are connected with their current learning modules. These activities are not graded, assigned, or even turned in. They are provided as a resource for parents who would like to participate in their children's learning experiences at home.
