Title: The Importance Of Providing A Proper Homework Environment For Children


1
The Importance of Providing a Proper Homework
Environment for Children
2
Once the fun-filled days of summer day camp are
over, kids return to one of the most famously
dreaded tasks of childhood, homework.
3
Of course, homework is an important part of every
childs school experience, and one of the most
helpful things you can do to help your child
4
with this much-complained-about task is to
provide a comfortable, pleasant work area with a
minimum of distractions.
5
Youll find that with well-organized space set
aside for doing school assignments, along with
some appropriate parental support, math problems
and school projects
6
can provide some great opportunities for
parent-child bonding as well as increased success
in school.
7
Getting Organized
8
Organization is a skill kids will use to great
advantage all their lives, and kids do best with
an established routine for completing school
assignments.
9
A designated time and space for completing
homework gets kids into good study habits.
10
Make sure when your youngster sits down to start
homework, all the necessary tools are at hand,
from books to pens, pencils and instructions from
the teacher.
11
Constantly getting up to find various items is a
big distraction and can cause kids to lose focus
on the assignment.
12
Whether theyre working at a desk, at the kitchen
table or even on their bed, kids need to have
everything close at hand in order to complete
tasks in a timely manner.
13
Space should be well-lit and relatively quiet.
14
Setting Up a Space
15
For many families, a kitchen or dining room table
gives optimum room to spread out, but if possible
a specially designated space is a better option.
16
Kids dont need a fancy desk for a homework
station a portable folding table or simple desk
from Ikea will allow you to create an
individualized work area for your child.
17
When a space is especially designated for
homework, kids can get themselves better
organized without the need to constantly clear
school paraphernalia away for other activities.
18
Necessities
19
Let your child help you gather everything needed
for various assignments.
20
For younger kids, this can include pencils,
scissors, glue sticks and erasers kept in
colorful cups or bins.
21
Vertical desktop files or portable file drawers
are great for storing paper, past assignments or
reference books, while other helpful items
include a clock, calendar, pencil sharpener and
trash bin.
22
A large calendar is an excellent way to help your
child prepare for big projects or exams, making
sure milestones are met and studying isnt put
off until the night before.
23
Teen Spaces
24
A designated homework space is important even
for middle or high school students, as it
encourages better concentration than sprawling
out across a bed.
25
Desks provide space for supplies, computer
docking stations and dry erase board.
26
Workspace should be well illuminated, have a
comfortable chair and be kept in proper order.
27
Good workspace organization is a great study aid.
28
Parental Supervision
29
While older kids should be able to study
independently, younger children need someone to
keep an eye on them to make sure they are
sticking to the task at hand.
30
Kids also do better when they know an adult is
there to provide some help if they need it
31
much as kids at day camp find it helpful to
have counselors and supplies handy to help them
with their homework.
32
One of the most important aspect of a childs
school experience is doing homework.
33
Children enjoy completing their homework in the
afterschool program at Maplewood Country Day Camp.
34
Experienced staff provide guidance and help.
Then it's time for arts and crafts, rock
climbing, gymnastics and more.
