Follow these tips to finish your homework and have time to spare after school!
You finally get home from school and want to relax after a long day. The last thing you want to do is your homework. It makes sense. But homework helps you apply all the things you learned during the school day to real life! Follow these tips to get your homework done in the most effective way possible and have more time for what you want to do.
Have a snack
Before you start your work, you need something to help you focus and give you energy. Have a healthy snack that will keep you on task. Fruit, veggies and hummus, and pretzels are all great options. And even more importantly, pour yourself a glass of water. You need to stay hydrated to do your best work!
Make a list
One thing that can really help you stay organized is to make a list. Write out everything you have to do and organize them by what is most important. For example, your math homework that is due tomorrow is more important to complete than your science project due at the end of the month. As you complete each thing, cross it off. This will help you stay on task as you work.
Start with the hardest thing
Starting with the most difficult task is a good way to keep yourself working. Once you complete the hardest item on your list, you can breeze through the remaining things, giving you more time for yourself.
Homework isn’t always what you want to do after school, but getting started right away will let you have more free time later in the night!
