Set a regular time each day for homework, allowing some time to unwind after school before getting started.
Be sure your child has all essentials, such as papers, books, school notebooks, and pencils.
Help your child get organized by providing folders for each subject. Check your child’s assignment book daily.
Have a quiet, clean, and well-lit place to study, with a comfortable chair. Keep all schoolwork here.
Discourage distractions, including TV, during study time. Allow breaks at intervals.
