How to Avoid Homework Meltdowns

December 8, 2020

This school year, students have been adjusting to virtual classes. Though students have been learning remotely, they are expected to complete all their daily assigned work. This can create a stressful environment for students and cause them to be overwhelmed. Here are some tips to support your student from having dreaded homework meltdowns!

Tip #1: Keep a Homework Schedule

Schedule time in the day for homework. It is essential for students to have a routine. This routine will allow students to form successful academic habits that will support their future academic success.

Tip #2: Take Breaks

It is important to take small breaks during homework time. We recommend students to take 5 to 10-minute breaks. Breaks should be taken after every hour.

Tip #3: Do Not Procrastinate

Assignments are due promptly. Though students may not physically turn in their assignments, they may be expected to turn them in digitally. We recommend that students first complete assignments that are due the next day and then complete assignments that are due later in the week.

Tip #4: Support Your Student's Learning

Since students are not physically in the classroom, they may not have opportunities to ask their teacher questions. It is important to understand that students and teachers have a limited amount of time together, and you may be asked to support your student's learning at home.

Tip #5: Encourage Your Student

Learning has been an adjustment for all students. Your student must know that they are doing their best!

How to help your student complete their homework on time:

1. Have your student complete assignments that they can complete efficiently and independently.

2. Be accessible when they are completing challenging assignments.

3. Set an alarm for break times to ensure that students are taking breaks and returning from breaks on time.

We hope these tips come in handy for you and your student!
