Homework is tricky to navigate, as most kids would rather not spend their evenings doing more school work. And who can blame them? Nevertheless, it has to be done, and here are some ideas to help motivate them.
Try to Make it More Fun
You can try to turn it into a game or incorporate some fun activities. Homework is often just a writing exercise or reading a textbook, so if you can make it more active then it will be more enticing.
Even if you can’t turn it into a game, then just taking an active role in it will help them stay focused. This will show them that you care about it, so will help them consider the benefits. It will also help them to feel you’re taking a real interest in them and their work, so they’ll feel more positive about doing it.
Have a Treat for Completing It
You don’t want them to only be doing homework for the reward, so use this along with the above. But having something to look forward to will help them crack on with it.
