The Homework Habit needs to be truly owned by a student. Homework must be given on a daily basis and in amounts that a child perceives as "do-able". At Scholars' Hall the "rule of thumb" for the total amount of homework assigned, each school night, is 5 minutes X's their grade. A Grade 3 student will get 15 minutes of homework while a Grade 11 students will have 55 minutes of homework.
Eat Smart Food for breakfast because it is the most important meal for peak academic performance. Serve them an egg sandwich or melted cheese on toast. The protein-carb combo keeps kids energized. Toast up whole-grain bread or frozen whole-grain waffles. The fiber they deliver will keep kid's stomachs satisfied longer and deliver loads of glucose which fuels brain power.
A lot of people have been asking how Nickolas is doing at his new school. I won’t go into too much detail of why he left his public school, but as a parent I am glad I listened to what he was saying and validated his feelings. He has gone from getting in trouble for tripping over his snow pants to excelling at an amazing school. Nickolas was not challenged where he was and not complimented or encouraged. He is now doing amazing. Since January he has done a science fair project, two book reports, a speech (memorized), a project on Nauryz, and a spelling bee.
He is doing fractions, multiplication, and two column math (with carrying). He is treated with respect and kindness and is loving and excelling at his new school. He has regained his self-confidence, and can’t wait to come home and do homework. It goes to show that when you love children, and teach them with the respect they deserve they will grow and develop. Thank you Scholars’ Hall for showing children how incredible they are, and helping my son rise to his full potential! I have my confident son back!
