Balanced after school routines are important: family time, restful and fun activities, and time to complete homework.
Chunk homework, long-term projects, and studying for tests. 10 Rules for Good Studying
Use a weekly/monthly calendar to include in and out of school activities and commitments
Maintain a reasonable bedtime schedule and avoid late Sunday night school work, which results in increased student stress.
If your child is learning how to use time effectively, help him/her to estimate the time needed for assignments (each and cumulative). An example is the Pomodoro technique.
Practice mindfulness and other wellness strategies when the tasks at hand feel overwhelming.
Use of the daily planner: each class, each day
Make a “daily plan”-a tool for completing daily assignments and developing time management skills
Reference unit calendars & syllabi
