Home Support Tips - Ohio Learning Standards
The following are suggestions to help your child at home:
-Establish and provide schedules and routines for your child daily after school.  
-Limit television and video games to one hour. 
-Read with your child or have your child read for at least 20 minutes each evening. 
-Provide silent family reading time and allow your child to see you enjoying reading.
-Encourage your child to write about what he/she reads. 
-Allow your child to conduct research via computer at home or at the Public Library. 
-Provide a quiet area for your child to work. 
-Be available to lend assistance.
-Ensure that homework is completed each evening. 
-Talk with  your child and ask him or her what they learned at school each day. 
-Ask "why?" and "how?" questions to promote critical thinking. We are doing this daily at school also. 
-Make sure your child has a bedtime routine and ensure 9-11 hours of sleep each each night. 
-Breakfast should be eaten every morning (at home or at school at 8:30 a.m.).  
The teachers at Fairmoor Elementary are guided by the designated Curriculum of Columbus City Schools in all academic areas as well as the unified arts classes. All teachers have begun implementing the Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Learning Skills. The standards are a national initiative adopted to ensure our students are college and career ready when they graduate from high school. Our district curriculum has been enhanced to align with the new standards, which offer students more time to focus on depth of understanding of the topics being covered. The clear standards help students realize what is expected of them and allows them to engage in higher level thinking skills.
Homework Information
Homework is given on a regular basis for the purpose of practice, to develop responsibility, to foster a habit of learning outside of the school, and to keep parents in touch with what is being taught at school.
