Or, you may have to simplify it for them by assigning different homework. If this still doesn’t work, you can try motivating families
by offering rewards or other incentives (i.e. free book, food voucher, etc.) Or, you may simply have to provide time during

Have parents complete GSL forms including:
- Release of information Form
- Transportation Supports Agreement
- Caseworker Form

- Homework: Discuss craft and assign number 1 in the child book. In parent book, see pages 2-9. Ask them to bring a
photograph/object that represents their family for next class
