All homework have deadlines. They needed to track when each assignment is due, not only to remember the time to turn them in but also prioritize and plan their time to do their homework on time. Planners : Their school provides a school year planner notebook at the beginning of the year. He writes some of his assignments down but mostly teachers post the details of the assignments along with deadlines on Google Classroom.
The student can use planner, however, it is crucial to use one and only one planning and tracking system, otherwise, it defeats the whole purpose of simplifying. One year, each teacher was using a different platform, both online and offline, to assign homework and it was a nightmare.
Thankfully, this year every grade uses one standard platform for all teachers. Whiteboard : This semester both kids started using our n ew DIY dry-erase whiteboard wall to schedule their weekly assignments and track their due dates. They see everything in one place so that they can prioritize, plan their week. We use online Google calendars for all of our scheduling but in my humble opinion, excessive use of electronics and online resources for school work cause more distraction for students.
Especially, if your kids are having hard time focus as is. There is already so much use of the internet, whether it is classroom portals, online learning websites, e-mailing and messaging for classroom projects. Wristbands: My son uses these adhesive colorful wristbands to remind himself to turn in his homework. Each color represents a different subject. Whenever he has an assignment to turn in, he puts on the corresponding wristband in the morning. He rips them off once the homework is turned in.
Awareness is the key for the wristband to trigger an action. At the beginning of each class, he can check his wrist to see if he has a wristband. Post it notes: You can use post-it notes on a pencil box, folder or another item that student definitely takes out of their backpacks every day.
Post-it note should trigger action to turn the homework in. Locker checklist: If the student has a locker at school, they can create a reminder note, laminate and put it up visibly in their locker. Final check before school dismissal : Getting into the habit of going through a checklist at the time when they are packing their backpacks before going home is a great way to work the executive functioning part of those growing brains.
This can be with the help of an exact same note as the locker checklist, or merely a mental checklist:. During the parent-teacher conferences, we talked to the teachers as well. We asked to have a standard method of turning in the assignments if they varied so that the students would know what is expected. We also advised our son to go up to the teacher before the end of the session and ask whether he should turn in the homework if he is in doubt.
It is his responsibility to let the teacher know he has completed his assignment on time and has it ready by its due date. Online homework is rather easier with one precaution. If homework is an online lesson, the homework is considered submitted when the lesson is complete. However, if an online document needs to be submitted, that has to go on time as well. The same organizing and reminder methods can be used.
