Strategies for Completing School Work at Home
-Routine is very important. Try to schedule a regular time for learning each weekday.
-Provide a designated work space and a schedule for different subjects that includes breaks for preferred activities.
-For younger learners, the concept of "First....Then" works well. First have your child complete a required activity and then they can complete an activity of their choice for a few minutes.
-Help your child to chunk assignments into smaller, more manageable parts.
-Have your child work in a quiet area, with as few disruptions as possible.
-Determine what works best for your child's learning style. For example, some students work better while listening to music, whereas for others, listening to music while working is highly distracting.
