Homework Checklist for Parents

  • Provide a quiet, well-lit space, away from distractions and with all the right study materials - paper, pens and pencils, books, a dictionary, a desk, etc.  

  • Try to find a separate space for each of your children, or schedule quiet times for homework in designated spaces.

  • Create a regular schedule, allowing for adequate study and free time. 

  • Limit TV time, and do not allow it during homework.

  • When possible, be available to answer questions. Try doing a problem or two together, then watch as your child tries the next one

  • Avoid simply giving an answer. Instead, ask questions that let your child see the problem in smaller, sequential steps.

  • Make use of the assignment notebook for writing down assignments. When they’re finished, compare the homework and the notebook to make sure everything is done.

  • Review completed and graded assignments.

  • Discuss errors to be sure your child understands the material.

  • Share any concerns with your children's teachers and be sure to let them know if your children are having difficulty or are unable to do most of it by themselves.
