Homework tips from Grandma

  • Keep in touch with teachers in order that you are aware of the quantity and the quality of the homework given and turned in.
  • Homework can be a sacred ritual too.... Set a schedule, including both a beginning and an ending time.
  • Most kids need some time to unwind after school before they tackle their homework.Doing it too close to bedtime may make it difficult due to fatigue.
  • Fridays are usually the best day for homework that must be completed over the weekend. Assignments are still fresh in mind and last minute panic rushes are avoided.
  • Encourage your child to divide the homework assignment into "What I can do myself" and "What I need help with."
  • You should help only with that part of the homework your child cannot do independently, such as practicing spelling tests, and clarifying assignments. This builds responsibility and independence in your child.
  • Use "Grandma`s Rule." Remember that randma always said that there is no dessert until you are finished with your spinach !
  • Put off on watching TV and other fun activities until homework is completed.
  • Determine a study zone for your child with adequate light and few distractions. Also, a dictionary, paper, pens, etc., should be readily available.
  • Use direct praise for doing the homework and even more for accomplishment.
  • Be available when your child is doing homework, so that you can answer a question if there is confusion.
  • If possible, it is better for you to be in another room, so you are easily accessible and yet not a distraction.
  • Look over the homework when it is completed but never attempt to correct it and make the child rework it.
  • Seeing the pattern of errors is often helpful to a teacher.
