At-Home Tips for School Kids

A fourth-grade teacher offers smart tips parents can use at home with their school-age children.

  • Ask the teacher to check your child’s homework book to be sure he has copied the assignments word for word.
  • Schedule an activity to break up homework, and alternate reading, writing, and hands-on tasks.
  • Consider an early-morning run or a bike ride to school to help your child burn off excess energy.
