Challenge Homework

If you would like to do some additional work (it is not required), here are some ways to "challenge" your child:

There are many, many websites with educational value!!! Your child can go on to (for math work), (spelling and word work), (reading skills -more for first grade), (academic games), and (vocabulary skills). You can find websites with printable worksheets on many subjects ( and most authors have great websites ( with all kinds of activities. There are also some web sites that you will need to pay to join ( that have test preparation activities. You can check on my school web site (under "instructional web links") for ideas.

You can have your child create a "Math Journal". He/she can record observations about math in everyday life (time, money, patterns, fractions, percentages).
You can purchase workbooks and have your child complete the pages.
You can do some simple science experiments at home. There are many websites and books to give you ideas.
Don't forget that children learn while playing! You can run around outside, join an organized sport, sign up for music lessons (Desert Rose Music Studio is near the library), or be creative (keep a journal, paint, draw, build with Legos, play with clay).
