Even if you don’t have kids in grade school, you’ve probably heard of Common Core. Parents have been talking about it at PTA meetings, after carpool, and all over Facebook.
I’ll admit, when I first saw all of the discussion about Common Core, I was thankful my kids were too young for the curriculum. But they’ve gotten older and now it’s our turn to experience Common Core ourselves.
Homework is sometimes difficult after the kids have had a long day at school. They may not fully understand an assignment or can’t remember what they’ve learned and have questions about it, so they turn to their parents for help. When that parent can’t help their child, it can be extremely frustrating.
Common Core Standards are helping more students be prepared for the future, but as they’re being implemented across the country, the homework can seem confusing and complex to parents.
Thankfully, now there are resources for families to get help online.
The Homework Help Desk is a tool that can help parents learn strategies to help their children with homework through instructional videos, one-on-one chats with expert teachers, practice problems, and more.
With the new standards of teaching, children are learning new concepts and strategies in the classroom that parents haven’t seen before. That means that while kids are learning in school, parents are having to learn right along with them.
That can be difficult to do without access to the child’s teachers and classes, so the Homework Help Desk is ready to help.
They have worked with teachers and parents to figure out what parents are struggling with most and are offering help.
Parents can sort for assistance by topic or by grade, can browse through instructional videos and speak one-on-one with a trained teacher to get specific help. The Homework Help Desk wants to give parents the support and knowledge that they need to help their children with homework assignments.
If you’re getting frustrated at homework time, be sure to check out the Homework Help Desk for help!
