ideas 1 Set homework goals At the beginning of each homework session ask your child What do you need to do today This simple question will help your child get focused on the task ahead Later have your child write a homework goal at the beginning of each study session 2 Get comfortable Some kids need absolute quiet to study Others can tolerate lots of noise Some need to sit at a desk Others work best when theyre sprawled on the floor Theres no right or wrong way to do home work Let your child experiment and see what works best 3 Set a schedule For more kids homework time should average about 10 minutes for each grade 20 minutes for second grade 40 minutes for fourth If they dont have that much homework they can read for pleasure review or work on an independent project Block out homework time every day 4 Identifiy learning styles Children learn in differ ent ways Some learn primarily through their eyesvisual learners through their earsauditory learners Some need to involve their entire bodieskinesthetic learners ExpefimenUo seewhat type of learning is best for your help her plan homework activities that support her learning style 5 Do a fiveminute check At the end of each homework session have your child get in the habit of checking homework Is his name on the paper Has he proofread the essay Parent Quiz Are Your Organized for the School Year Heres a quiz to see how
