Homework Charts Introduction
Ah-h-h-h, the evergreen challenge of making sure the kids’ homework is done. You can make life easier by using one of our versatile Homework Charts to take the guesswork out of expectations. Some kids, especially those with attention difficulties, do better with a chart to help keep them focused. Others like checking off items when completed, much as adults enjoy clearing a to-do list. Of course, then there are those who try to avoid homework as much as possible. The chart reminds them of your expectations.
Selecting a Homework Chart
We’ve developed Homework Charts for primary ages to teens. You’ll know as a parent when you need to start the process to provide structure and an incentive with homework. You don’t need to start a chart until it is needed. (In fact if you have a youngster who handles all the homework without intervention, give yourself a star!)
Using Our Printable Homework Charts
You may want to include details, like by what time homework should be started. Or you may want to simply focus on academic subjects. You can include different aspects of homework: Bringing assignments and books home, packing up completed work properly for taking to school, and a spot for turning in work. Be sure to sit down and have a discussion with your child. For older students, come to an agreement on how the homework should be approached. Nail down expectations, and determine a reasonable incentive. It feels great to get work out of the way without you having to keep reminding them; let our Homework Charts help.
Keep it Interesting
We suggest rotating the chart from time to time to help keep young children involved with the chart. Don’t forget that Premium and Pro Members at Latitudes.org can type directly onto these charts. We recommend printing a few at a time, then complete another chart in a similar manner, and keep them in a file folder ready for use.
Enjoy and Have Fun!
