Homework Rescue 101
Homework time can be really challenging, especially getting little ones to focus.
Here are a few techniques that will help you and your child get thru the challenges of online education:
Tip #1: Feet Flat on the Ground
Feet should always be flat on the ground while a child is studying or doing homework. Try a low table or kitchen table where they can reach the floor. A kitchen island is not recommended as their feet cannot touch the ground.
Tip #2: Start with the least difficult homework task
Once a child successfully completes a task, they will feel proud and want to continue.
Tip #3: Take a Motion Break every 30-45 minutes
Younger children require more frequent breaks. Set any timer you have with an alarm (phone/microwave) and when it goes off, show your children your best dance moves, do jumping jacks, run in place; anything that gets them moving. Enjoy the moment and be silly! A motion break should be no longer than 10 minutes.
