Collaborative home assignments can turn into a real ordeal if you do not follow these simple tips.
Parents of schoolchildren often have a hard time when running with the kids homework. First, it is not always possible to persuade the child to sit for lessons on time, and secondly, after a working day, when you need to have time to redo the household chores, you can’t always carve out enough time to solve tasks in mathematics or of learning rules of the Ukrainian language, informs Rus.Media.
Parents of students need to remember that lessons are our lessons! A child of 7 years, from the fact that it is now driving to school, not ceased to be a child. He needs help to organize space, time, breaks, mode, and still it is necessary to solve still play!
Today we will talk about how to do homework with the kids, so this process does not bore you and the baby and went without conflicts.
Stay after school
Before to start performance of homework, the child needs to rest from school. Walk after school mandatory! If your child attends an after-school program where the teacher brings the children out, stay after school in the school yard, let your child a little run with their classmates (that is to say, “clearing his head”) before you continue to “gnaw granite of science”. The minimum Hiking time – half an hour, but preferably an hour and a half. Then, after returning home, after dinner and a little rest can be taken for the lessons.
How much time to do homework
According to psychologists, the best time for homework is 15 to 18 hours. Mandatory breaks for 5-10 minutes every 30-40 minutes, especially for younger students. It is necessary to rest the eyes, hands and back. The child is to do some physical exercises, eat a piece of chocolate or fruit. Preferably, the homework took no more than 1.5-2 hours.
Set up your work space
The child-student should have their own table. No “honor, sitting on the couch,” no TV close by. It is not necessary for students to huddle around the kitchen table while mom is there, chopping the cabbage. The student need full-fledged workstation. A comfortable chair, sturdy table, the light falling on the right. It’s important to not have anything extra around toys, CDs, designers will be able to distract and call for the game, not to serious.
First what you like
Start the implementation of the lessons from that subject which the child likes, and which comes easily to him. This will give confidence: it worked for me, I liked it, I will continue to do the lessons!
If the child for a long time included in the work, to warm up, I ask him to make the job easier. If, on the contrary, the student quickly starts and quickly gets tired, then start with that lesson, which is heavier and requires maximum concentration.
Does not matter, with oral tasks start or writing. Importantly, when performing tasks in the Ukrainian language, for example, the student first learned the rules, and then did a writing assignment on this rule, and not Vice versa. Mother’s participation gives strength!
Try to praise
No, don’t lie! Do not say: “Oh, how smooth the stick!”, if the wand crawled on two cells down. But you can say, “Here, this wand is smooth, well done, and this next time will also be the same smooth, huh?” You should try to avoid negative assessments, so as not to scare resentful younger pupils. Try not to say: “did Not work! You couldn’t do it! It’s bad!” It is better to understand why things are not working out, and exercise.
Do not scold for mistakes
The student still only picked up a pen, instead of “cow” to write “Makarov” and the mother rushes to the attack, shouting: “Error! I just ruined a book! Now we have to cover, tear out a page!” The child is frightened, horrified, throws the pen and feels like a loser.
Don’t be afraid of mistakes. When a mistake is made, or even when some mistakes are made, ask the student to stop and look closely at what he wrote. Let itself will try to find the error. To fix the wrong letter or number on paper is always possible, but to improve in the future low self esteem and fear of all for something to undertake, because in childhood “zatyukali” will be difficult.
Don’t be afraid to help
If you see that the child is tired, do not force him to Wade through letters that merge. Better read it paragraph by themselves. If the child badly feels, help him with his homework. If I see that I still have so much to do and time to sleep there are very few that take the routine work, for example, cutting out while he does the math.
Every caring parent helps the child with homework. Many there are difficulties: it happens that the child is not doing homework, does not understand the material or do not want to do. Therefore, it is important to know how to do with the child the lessons that the process took place without conflicts and not tired.
