5 Ways to Make Homework Fun for Kids Infographic
Sometimes the thought of your child having to do homework after being in school all day is frustrating. However, to help make the task more pleasant for your kids and yourself, this infographic provides 5 ways to make homework fun!
- Magical Motivators
Use incentives to get your children to do their homework without a fight. Small snacks, stickers, iPad time or toys work well for younger children.
- Write it for Them
No, that doesn’t mean do it for them. It might seem counter-intuitive, but if you mix up the routine, and have your child dictate the answers to you, they will be a lot more interested in the actual subject material.
- Learning Apps
Homework can be frustrating if your child doesn’t understand the material. Fun math practice apps can be a great resource for visual examples and games that help your child practice concepts he is struggling with.
- Get a Homework Buddy
Turn homework into a play date. Have your child invite a friend over and encourage them to do their homework together. Make sure you lay down a few rules ahead of time.
- Don’t Take it Too Serious
There are more important things in life than homework and grades. Too much emphasis on grades can destroy your child’s love of learning and devalue relationships.
