“Homework” – this word often causes nervous tension not only for the schoolboy but for all house members. Especially if the kid is a pupil of the primary school when the discipline is not yet established and he has not learned to cope with his tasks yet. In order to avoid this, starting with the first form, the child must be taught some basic rules for doing homework. This is necessary so that the learning process does not turn into a heavy routine for the whole family and waiting for the weekend was not more about the child, but about the mother.
The correct daily regimen
The first task of the parent is to establish a strict discipline and regime in the home. This does not mean that you need to go in lines and sing marching songs, it’s about letting the child know what and when he will do. He will learn to plan and estimate his efforts. At the same time, it is necessary to take into account some principles of physiology that even a very diligent kid will not be able to cope with. For example, after dinner, the child will need a little time for rest. The approximate regime of the day should be:
- the child woke up;
- he made a bed, washed his face, brushed his teeth;
- had breakfast;
- get dressed;
- went to school;
- returned from school, changed his clothes;
- had his meal;
- rested about an hour;
- did his homework;
- rested after duties;
- had his dinner;
- got ready for tomorrow;
- went to sleep.
The task of the parent is to distribute the educational efforts correctly throughout the day. A child should be guided in his schedule and he needs to know what he will do in the near future.
Distributing the efforts
In order to do everything faster, homework is divided according to complexity. The first is always mathematics since it requires the greatest concentration, the latter – drawing, crafts. Do homework in a certain order:
- Mathematics, written assignments.
- Reading tasks.
- Learning tasks.
- Creative tasks.
The hardest tasks should be at the beginning, more creative and “task for rest” should be at the end or between the tasks. In addition, one must remember that those tasks that require constant repetition and memorization are learned during the homework, and then are reminded during the day, at breakfast and at any other time.
All teachers and psychologists recommend helping the child with his homework in the first grades. At the same time, the degree of assistance from others should be strictly metered. In this case, you cannot simply turn away and provide no help, but to control every step is bad. Distribute tasks and teach the child independence is the best. Every parent knows what the pupil has problems with. Therefore, before you do the homework, you need to distribute the tasks in terms of complexity. And every difficult task should be done according to the principle:
- you read the rules;
- you try to make it yourself;
- you do not understand something – I will explain it to you.
At the same time, it is necessary to determine when the child really does not cope, and when he is just too lazy to understand. In the first case, it is necessary to explain, in the second one to push to independent work.
Silence and motivation
In all norms, it is registered that the child should have a place for doing assignments and it is not without reason. Before you do the assignments, he must concentrate on the assigned task and not be distracted. Therefore, the student needs to provide a place for classes, remove all unnecessary gadgets, turn off the music and TV. At this point, you need to negotiate with the family members to put off their noisy business, if you really want to watch a movie or play a game, this should be done in headphones.
One should never forget about motivation; a child should understand why he does all this. By learning how to accomplish tasks quickly, the kid will be able to devote more time to his favorite business – playing, reading, talking with his mother or watching TV with his dad.
