Struggling to figure out how to help a kindergartener with their homework? You’re not alone- many parents have a hard time motivating kids to do their homework (without doing it for them). If you find yourself in that position, here are some tips- from a teacher-parent!- to help you get the kindergarten homework help you need (WITHOUT anyone crying in the process)
As a teacher, I hated homework. I hated assigning it, and I felt bad that parents struggled to get kids to complete it. Research doesn’t support it, and, frankly, I’d rather have the kids practice with me at school than muddle through with their parents at home, often picking up misconceptions in the process.
As a parent- well, I just hate homework for the regular reasons. Mostly because my kid doesn’t want to do it, but I’ve got to make her.
If you find yourself in need of kindergarten homework help, know that you’re not alone. Here’s some advice from me, both as a parent and teacher, that can help end your homework battles once and for all.
