One of the hardest things that a parent has to deal with is getting their third grader to do their homework. With all of the changes to the curriculum since most of us were in school, it can sometimes be hard to give them the help that they need. Here are some ways to help you child succeed in completing their homework.
You should get your child a planner that they can write all of their assignments in. You should look at their planner every day to make sure that they are completing their assignments on time.
Encourage your child to copy what the teacher has on the board so that they can effectively complete their homework. You can read the notes to help them complete the assignments.
Let your child know that you are there for them and will help them if they need it. They should know that you will take the time to help them as much as you can.
Make sure that your child has a quiet and distraction free place to complete their assignments.
Create a routine where your child knows that they will need to work on their homework. Have them do it right when they get out of school before dinner or whatever works for you but try to make it the same time every day.
The school may promote meetings that teach you how to complete the problems the new ways of doing the problems.
Make sure to check your child’s homework to see if they have completed it and if the answers are correct.
If they come home with work and things are not right, have them rework the problems they got wrong so that they can work on correcting their mistakes.
Find additional resources to help your child. There are so many apps and sites that they can use to learn about all sorts of topics.
If they are still struggling, get them a tutor who will work with them one on one, so that they get the help that they need.
