Daily Homework Time

If homework is not automatic in your home, if it causes some battles, if you know there’s “got to be a better way,” consider Daily Homework Time. Your student will only have two kinds of homework this year: (1) stuff from class they didn’t finish, and (2) stuff they should work on at home to get better and smarter.

The second thing is called Daily Homework Time. The basic idea is for you set aside about 40-50 minutes Monday through Thursday for your student to get smarter; 40 minutes for 4th graders, or 50 minutes for 5th graders. Each night, they should practice some math, do some writing, and finish class homework. Other things might be to work on cursive, practice math facts at MobyMax, or work on spelling. There’s no such thing as, “I have no homework,” because there is always math to get better and usually writing to work on.

Here’s a sample schedule of daily homework time and more information. You can also find more information about homework and missing assignments on the Homework Policy page of our class website. I also have copies of Homework Without Tears, the source of the Daily Homework Time idea, if you would like to borrow one.

Your student probably won’t do this on their own. But with your guidance, you can help your student get into good habits of doing something every day to improve themselves (not to mention their grades).
