A Guide to Successfully Planning Homework
Keep meeting goals, the key is organization
We are living an improvised situation in which we must stay at home, for our health and that of others. We have been talking about how being organized is the key factor for everyone at home to continue achieving their goals. However, we know planning can be challenging, so today we bring you 5 easy steps to help you put together your homework schedule.
• Hold a meeting with all family members to decide what activities are going to be done and how they are going to be done.
• List all the activities that arise from the meeting: online education, telecommuting, leisure time, routine tasks and household duties.
• Set rules about which activities should be done every day and which are non-negotiable, such as homework and family responsibilities.
• Use a poster board and start putting together the weekly plan. If the day is organized with pictograms, it is advisable to have them printed and laminated (if possible). If we have children at home it is a good time for them to participate by drawing and coloring the activities for each day, get them involved beyond telling them what and when to do things.
• Ready! Now hang it in a visible place and follow the planning.
