  • Allow your child to re-energize themselves after school by taking a break, having a snack, or playing a game before beginning homework
  • Create a routine for homework each night using the same time and place each day
  • Encourage children to use planners to stay organized with assignments
  • Have a set place for homework like a big desk with all necessary materials available such as pencils, paper, books, and calculators; make sure the area is free of distractions
