Homework Tips Homework Tips
 Create a homework survival kit:

* In order to get homework done, have the supplies needed in one place. Kit 
   should include: pencils, writing paper, crayons, pencil sharpener, eraser, glue,
   and scissors. You may add items you feel are needed.
* A homework survival kit (contains all the supplies needed to do home learning)
   will prevent your child from being distracted by the need to go searching for
   supplies, and will free you from last minute trips to the store.
* Respect your child's homework survival kit. Don't use these supplies for other
   family needs.

 Schedule daily homework time:

* Help your child develop good homework habits by encouraging him or her to
   start homework at the same time each day. By scheduling a special time for
   homework, you will not only help your child get work done on time, but you will
   also ensure that homework is done at a time when you are available to assist
   your child.
* Remind your child each day when he or she is to do homework. Don't leave it
   up to your child to remember.

 Encourage your child to work independently:
* Homework teaches children responsibility. Through homework, children learn
   skills they must develop if they are to grow to be independent, motivated, and
   successful adults. They will learn how to follow directions, how to begin and
   complete a task, and how to manage time.
* By encouraging your child to work on his or her own, you are helping develop 
   these important life skills.

 Motivate your child with praise:
* Children need encouragement and support from the people whose opinions they
   value the most, their parents.
* Your consistent praise can increase your child's self esteem and confidence.
* Motivate him or her to do the best work possible.
