It's funny, my pre-schooler was so jealous that her big brother had homework nightly. Then she finally brought home her own--a simple alphabet tracing exercise; and after one minute, she decided homework wasn't as thrilling as she imagined it would be.
Still, it's important to make time and effort for homework--it reiterates the key lessons kids learn during school hours. We have tips to help you make sure your kids succeed--and these are the common pitfalls to avoid.
Homework Help: Common Mistakes to Avoid
- FAILURE TO SHOW WORK
Teachers want to make sure students understand what they're doing. If a student gets the wrong answer on a question without showing their work, it makes it difficult to figure out where they went wrong and explain how to arrive at the correct answer.
- NOT UNDERSTANDING THE DIRECTIONS
Whether they don't understand the source or material missed a vital detail in the question, Brainly can help students better understand the question being asked which is integral to finding the right answer.
- FORGETTING TO PROOFREAD THEIR WORK
There's nothing more frustrating than an unforced error in one's schoolwork. Proofreading ones work to make sure that it is up to the expected level and that it hits on all required points is essential to receive a positive grade.
- POOR TIME MANAGEMENT
The longer students procrastinate on their work and wait until the last minute, the sloppier their finished product comes out. It's always best to begin a homework assignment as early as possible to avoid a rushed outcome.
