Many students struggle with doing their
homework, especially when the assignment is
the dreaded "long term" variety.
Here is a link to a web site with some free
charts to help your child break the assignment
down into manageable parts.
Organizing long term tasks is a very important skill.
When students learn to do this independently,
it helps them to look at time, materials and
resources in a realistic manner.
In order to strengthen planning and organizing skills,
you can provide your child with daily or weekly
events that they can help organize at home.
Estimating how long a task will take, what materials or people are needed,
and predicting an outcome fosters independent thinking and planning skills.
