Doing homework regularly is an important part of having a successful school year. Taking time now, at the beginning of the year, as a family to discuss great homework habits can help students reach that goal.
When do you do your homework?
It’s important to know that everyone is not the same when it comes to doing homework, and no one plan will work for all students.
- Some kids can do homework as soon as they get home from school.
- Some kids might need a snack first and then do homework.
- Some kids need to recharge their batteries after school, taking 30 minutes of free time before doing homework.
Not everyone can stay focused for the same period of time. While some may be able to sit down and finish their homework others will need breaks.
Working for 30 minutes on homework, taking a 10 minute break, then working for 30 minutes more might be the solution.
