How To Help A Kid Complete First Grade Homework Assignments

It can be very difficult to watch your young child struggling with their homework. This is especially true these days because they have revised the educational system so much that our children are learning many things differently. Even though we may not understand exactly how they are teaching our kids how to divide these days, there are some things that we can do to help them.

  • Create a schedule
  • Have your little one do their homework at the same time every day. It is best to have them get to it right after they get off of the school bus. They will still be in “school mode” for the most part and it is a consistent time.

  • Offer assistance
  • You want to let them know that you can help them if they need it, but don’t overcrowd them. Let them ask you for help instead of standing over them to see if they need it. You can make them nervous when they don’t remember right away and that can stop them from doing the work on their own. You will be able to read their facial expressions to see when to step in. you can do this mostly by reminding them that you are there to help them.

  • Use programming
  • The best part of having a kid these days is that we have so many more resources to help them than when we were kids. There are so many educational games, movies, and sites to check out and you can sign them up for a bunch of them for free. Surf the net to find these resources and have them available. They can “play and learn” for a few hours on the weekend or on the days they don’t have homework.

  • Communicate with the teacher
  • You can also keep in contact with the teacher when you have any questions about the assignments that come home. Some schools will even host meetings where they teach parents how to do the problems so that they can help their kids.

The best way to help your child is through communication. Let them know that you are there to help. Let them tell you when they need the help. Just be there to assist them and make the time to get involved in their education and you will find that they will be successful.
