    Homework Tips

    Pay attention in classes 

    • It'll reduce the time you spend trying to learn the topic at home


    Establish a routine

    • Make a schedule and stick to it.
    • Decide the best time for doing homework.  You may think the best time is right after school, or you may need a break first and then do homework after dinner.
    • Do homework at the same time every day.  If your involved in after school  activities, homework comes first!
      • Since coaches sometimes change practice schedules from week to week, plan ahead to complete homework assignments.

    Set up a study area

    • Do homework in the same place every day
    • Find a place with proper lighting where you are comfortable

    Homework survival kit

    • Get the supplies you need: pencils, eraser, pencil sharpener, paper, crayons,  dictionary, scissors, glue, ruler, calculator and other supplies
    • Keep supplies in a box near the study area


    • Homework time needs to be a time when you can concentrate.  Work at reducing distractions and interruptions by Social Media and TV.


    Focus on the subjects you've been struggling with

    • Give some extra time towards the topics you're not the best at
