3 Steps to Homework Success
Here are a couple tips to help your students through what can sometimes feel like a heavy workload.
1. Discuss. Check in with your child everyday and ask what homework they have. Set a positive tone with comments like, "I loved writing in my journal when I was your age," or "How exciting that you're old enough/skilled enough to create a video to show what you know."
2. Plan. Help your young learner determine in what order she/he will complete their work. You can suggest that they get the hardest material or longest assignment done first, or as soon as they get home, and then complete the easier or shorter tasks after dinner. Or, vice versa - however they feel they can be most successful!
3. Review. Look over your child's work together and compliment on something she/he did particularly well, or in an area in which they have improved. If you see careless mistakes, have them double-check their work, but avoid telling them any answers - let them figure that our for themselves!!
Your dedication and support for your child has a lasting impact in their lives. These small steps will surely help them find success.
