It is never too late to help your child learn good study habits. Homework, although sometimes a challenge, is part of the learning process and depends on a child practicing skills learned in the classroom. Studies have shown that homework and school grades go hand in hand. The more time quality time spent on homework, the better the grades. Note the emphasis on quality over quantity. Your child does not have to spend a lot of time for the homework to be effective; the child simply needs good study skills.
Check out “Homeroom“–the blog site for the U.S. Department of Education. Explore more than this one post, though. There is a lot of good information that can help your child succeed with flying colors!
For additional information on parent engagement, take a look at this site, aptly named “Parent and Family Engagement.”
Teachers, make sure your students know how, what, and where to study for optimal performance. Practice of good study skills leads to faster learning and homework preparation. All kids want to learn to save time on their homework. Show them how.
