4 Strategies To Help Your Child With Homework

 

Children even as small as preschool age can certainly benefit from homework as long as it is appropriate for their age and their style of learning. Since children are not made from a pattern, it is important to remember that there are four types of learning styles. They are:

·         Auditory

·         Kinetic

·         Visual and spatial

·         Logical

 

Each child will have their very own way of processing this information, and so when looking for preschools in Maryland, it may be a good idea to be sure that the teachers are able to help place your child’s learning style to provide the right kind of learning environment. However, regardless of the type of learning style your child may have, there are many universal ways to help your child with homework to facilitate their absorption and understanding of the subject matter.

1.      Always have your child do homework away from distractions such as television, radio and electronic toys. Give your child a quiet and comfortable place to do homework where they can focus solely on the task at hand.

2.      Get them excited about their own progress. Make charts with stars to mark good grades or homework tasks accomplished. This lets them see the progress they have made, and you can work toward rewards after so many stars have been earned.

3.      Be sure to try creative ways for making homework interesting. Many children, due to their short attention span, often get bored. Keep them interested, and they will be able to stay focused for a much longer period of time.

4.      Look at many preschools in Maryland before choosing one. Make sure that the school matches your child’s developmental stages and that the staff can provide the right kind of learning environment for your child’s learning style.  Give your child the right start for a good finish.
