As much as school is a space of learning and education for your child, so too can your home be. Here are some practical ways you can support your child’s education at home.
Create a Dedicated Space for Learning
One way to encourage your child to feel happy and able to work from home is to set up a space in your house where they feel comfortable working. This might mean a separate room with a study desk dedicated to them, or it might be a part of a room in which they can find solitude and quietness to get on with their learning.
Encourage Their Curiosity
Children are naturally quite curious, and curiosity is one of the cornerstones of learning. You can encourage this trait in your children by enthusiastically responding when they ask questions, or by researching things together as an activity. You can also get board games in which knowledge is a useful component as this can make learning seem more engaging.
Help With Homework
If your child struggles to find motivation to complete their homework, it can be very effective if you sit down with them a couple of times and go through it with them. This will let your child know that you are happy to help and that you are on their side when it comes to their learning. You can also follow up by being engaged with what they have learned from completing their homework.
