4 Tips for Better Homewok

There is a strong connection between how well students do in school and doing homework. Homework has an important role in learning and in the consolidation of important concepts. It is the best way for parents to evaluate how much their kids understand what is going on in class. However, homework does not mean spending long hours with your kids explaining and helping them with their assignments. Kids should be encouraged to take a break and relax, but this does not mean that you are going to do it for them. Kids should be encouraged to enjoy doing homework by themselves.

So the following are some tips for a better way to do homework:

·   Help your kid to be organized:  your kid should be equipped with the basic items they need for doing homework such as: papers, folder, binder, pens, pencils, scissor, ruler, glue…etc. It is a good idea to have duplicates of the objects they use in the classroom. It is also important to make your kid start with the easiest tasks, so as to feel motivated to work and to keep the potentially difficult ones till the end. But before they start, you should help them look at all the assignments and set a time limit for each one based on how difficult it will be.

·   Not all homework need to wait until your kid gets home: ask your kid to look through homework before they get home, so as to ask the teacher about homework or the tasks that they do not understand.

·   Meet your kid’s teachers: Meeting teachers is very important to be involved in your kid’s education. Teachers want to listen to you and offer you tips on how you can help your kid with their homework. Early in the school year and regularly, ask teachers about your child’s subjects and homework policies.

·  Reward your kid for doing homework: your recognition of your kid’s effort can mean a lot to them and can encourage them to always try hard.  The reward can be a gift, a family trip, dining out together, going to the fun fair…etc. Most behavior is influenced by the consequences that follow it, so when you rewardyour child’s behavior, the behavior is more likely to happen again in thefuture.
