For Parents

My name is Ms. Lewis and I teach 6th and 7th grade Math at MS 337.  I am currently developing this website as a resource for my students to find extra practice for the mathematics they are learning in class. 

From time to time, I will be asking students to visit the website as part of an assignment.  I have reviewed all of the sites linked to the website to confirm that the content is appropriate for their learning.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns:

Below are some tips to help you help your child with his or her school work at home.

Tips for Helping Your Child Succeed  

Many students have trouble at some point in their academic career.   Below are tips for supporting your child, even if you do not remember the work.  Knowing that you are involved and care about their learning will help your child be a better student.

  1. Ensure that your child is completing the homework.  It is crucial for students to complete homework to practice what they learn in class.  While you may help them, do not do the assignment for them

  2. Ask, “What did you learn today?”  Your child should be able to describe the topic even if he/she does not completely understand it.  If your child consistently has trouble explaining the lesson, contact the teacher immediately at 718-860-4181.

  3. Read over your child’s notes.  They should be neat, clear and organized. 

  4. Encourage the child to ask the teacher for help outside of class.  Contact the teacher if you would like your child to receive additional help.

  5. Dial-A-Teacher:  The UFT sponsors a homework help program for elementary and middle school students called Dial-A-Teacher. Classroom teachers answer homework questions at (212) 777-3380 Monday through Thursday, from 4 to 7 p.m. during the school year. They can also answer parents' questions and give advice on how you can help your child at home. The staff speaks 12 languages, including Spanish.
