Its only the beginning of the second full week of school and I already have parents breathing down my back. I am a new 4th grade in class support teacher and I have this student who needs to have his homework written in his planner for him everyday, as well as having his books to go home with put into his book bag every day. How do I get the parents to understand that their child needs to learn himself how to be responsible for completing this task? I have no problem reminding the student and then checking to make sure that it was done but I just feel so frustrated because the parents expect me to do this for the student all the time. Does anyone have any suggestions that I could use to help this student with the task of writing the homework in the planner everyday and getting the correct books into the book bag on the child's own?
