Help Your Child Be More Efficient with Their Homework

During the first years of elementary, students might not get as much homework. However, the amount and difficulty of their homework will quickly increase. This makes it more important that students learn better homework strategies. Today we want to share two ways to help your child to improve in their homework tasks.

2 Simple but Necessary Steps For Helping Your Child with Homework

  • Teach them to make a plan.  Once students start to experience a higher homework load or having to juggle several homework assignments from different classes, it can get overwhelming. It is necessary that students learn to make a plan and break down their work into feasible chunks. If they write down what needs to get done and section it into workable chunks it will greatly facilitate their task. Also, for long and tedious assignments, it is best to set a timer. This will help them work in periods of 15 minutes with 5 minute breaks in between so that they can stay focused and alert without getting frustrated and overwhelmed.
  • Get rid of distractions. At first, younger students need to complete homework in an area that is quiet and free of persistent distractions. However, as your child progresses in school, they also need to learn to cope with external distractions, such as other noises, movements, people talking, or other things that draw their attention. They must also learn to limit their own distractions, such as their cellphone and the television. If possible, teach your child to put away their phone in a far away place when working on homework. This is not only good for them, but it can also be a great motivator to concentrate and get the work done in a timely manner.
