Step 1: Download and print the homework chart on card stock or plain paper.
Step 2: Help your child fill out the chart. Begin with the week’s dates at the top, and fill in all school subjects along the left hand side. As the week progresses, have your child write each assignment in the corresponding box. Once the assignment has been done, there’s a check box to mark off so they know it’s completed at a glance. If there’s no homework in a certain subject, write “None.”
Step 3: Fill in any extra boxes as you see fit—those are a great place for extracurriculars like music, sports, and so on.
Step 4: If you child has required reading, fill in that column with minutes or materials read.
Step 5: Enjoy the organization and have a great school year!
