It is important that you help your child select a study area for him/her to complete his/her homework. The study area should be located in a quiet part of your home, away from the noise and distraction of the TV and siblings. The area should be well lit and be equip with all items necessary for the completion of homework (Pencils, erasers, markers, scissors, etc. )
It is also necessary that you and your child come to an agreement as to the time that their homework will be completed each day. By helping your student set up a study area and selecting a designated homework time you are effectively communicating to your student the importance of homework, learning and being successful.
