10 Ways to help your CHILD with HOMEWORK:
1. Let your child know that homework is IMPORTANT and VALUABLE.
2. Set a regular time each day for homework, allowing some time to unwind after school before getting started.
3. Be sure your child has all essentials, such as papers, books, school notebooks, and pencils.
4. Help your child get organized by providing folders for papers and a calendar and/or assignment notebook.
5. Have a quiet, clean, and well-lit place to study, with a comfortable chair. Keep all schoolwork there.
6. Discourage distractions, including TV, during study time. Allow study breaks at intervals.
7. Be available to answer questions or help quiz your child, but keep homework as his or her responsibility to complete.
8. Spot check homework when it's completed.
9. Read any comments the teacher has made on return assignments.
10. If a homework problem arises, contact the teacher for clarification.

Remember that you should praise your child for doing the best to their ability on his or her homework.
