When is the best time to do homework? Some children come home from school and need to do their homework while still in ‘school mode’. Others need a break between school and homework. Still, many find the middle ground, choosing to start homework immediately but needing to take frequent breaks to stretch, get a snack and then get back to work.

The point is students have their own study styles. In school, they have little choice in when and what to study. Therefore, at home figure out what works best for your children. Discuss with them what they need and develop a routine that works best for them.

*Keep in mind: What works for one child is likely to be the opposite of what works for another. Tailor a schedule to each child.
