As a 1st grader, the idea of home work can sound fun until you have been at school all day then go home and start doing homework. This can be especially difficult if the weather is nice or there is snow and you want to go and play with your friends.
The problem is that if you do go out straight away, you know that you have homework hanging over you so you don’t have as much fun as you would do if you had already tackled that geometry task.
The best way to tackle the problem is to have a plan.
The plan is simple and if you do the work straight away it will take less time than if you leave it until later.
If you still feel a little down about completing the work then remember why it needs to be done.
After you have had a snack, choose where you feel comfortable to do your work. Sitting in front of the TV is not a good idea as it can be too distracting.
If you get stuck then ask for some help. You parents may be able to help, but if they can’t then tell your teacher as soon as you get chance first thing in the morning. You may have an older brother or sister who may have had the some work to complete a year or two ago.
As you are a 1st grader you may only have about ten minutes of Geometry to do, and some of it may be a practical task, such as finding shapes or objects with angles. You may even find that you enjoy the task so much that you want to do more.
If you make it your rule that you will always do your homework as soon as you get home, then that will be a good routine to get into as you will get more homework as you progress through grade school.
