Homework is a constructive tool in the teaching/learning process when geared to the needs and abilities of students. Purposeful assignments not only enhance student achievement, but also develop self-discipline and associated good working habits. As an extension of the classroom, homework must be planned and organized, must be viewed as purposeful to the students, and should be evaluated and returned to students in a timely manner.
Teachers may give homework to students to aid in the students educational development. Homework should be an application or an adaptation of a classroom experience, and should not be assigned for disciplinary purposes.

Activities that were practiced during speech therapy may be sent home. The purpose of this is to further practice learned skills allowing them to become more habitual. These exercises will also allow family to become more involved in the student's treatment. I will not require these exercises be returned, however it does provide me with an additional opportunity to monitor progress towards goals and make necessary adjustments as needed. If you would like activities sent home with your child, please let me know.
