MORE TIPS TO GET YOUR KIDS IN THE SCHOOL ROUTINE
Emphasize the Importance of Education First
Your child takes cues from you with all things in life, including education. If you set the expectations high when your child is young, he or she will embrace that. Creative Learning Arts School recommends that you tell your child how much you value education, how having an education is important in this world, and how attending school and doing your best means a lot to you. Prioritize family activities that support education, such as reading at home, limiting screen time, and learning together. Once your child gets going back in school, ask about their day, what they did, and look at the work they did at school. Praise them frequently, and remain engaged in the happenings of your local school.
Emphasize the Importance of Homework
A lot of children struggle with homework, not because it’s difficult, but because they don’t understand its value. Most homework your child will have here at Creative Learning Arts School will support what the teacher is doing inside the classroom. Let’s face it, there’s just not enough time in a day to accomplish everything there is to accomplish. Your teacher has milestones he or she wants to teach, as well as state standards, which can require additional work. By supporting your child with homework, helping out when you can and answering questions, you will be helping your child’s overall learning. In addition, you can set up a special place in your home or in your child’s room for your child to do homework in. Help your child make homework a daily habit, with a quiet and consistent place to work.
Furthermore, most schools, including Creative Learning Arts School, now have apps where you can stay up-to-date on all of your child’s homework and school activities. Oftentimes, children forget what their homework is, so by helping them, you’ll be setting them up for long-term success.
Emphasize Family Time
Oftentimes in the busyness of school, family time gets squeezed to the point it is completely cut out of the picture. Try to get together at least once a day, such as at dinnertime, to reconnect with one another.
