I’m a teacher as well as a mom. A good homework hack is to have a place or station set up where your child can do homework. Have pencils, erasers, ruler, pencil crayons, paper, etc. all available in that dedicated spot. They could be in a box that gets put away and pulled at homework time or left in a permanent place. Nonetheless, have all the supplies necessary available so that valuable time is not lost trying to find supplies. It helps to keep your child focused on the task at hand and eliminates excuses.
It's also helpful to have a dedicated homework time. That time may be different for your family but some suggestions are right before dinner or right after dinner. It’s tough for kids to sit down to homework right after coming home from school as they need a break too. Remember play is just as important to their development as the work they do. It might be worth giving them some time after school to play for a while and then getting down to home work. They will be a lot fresher that way.
