Let me begin by saying that the purpose of this site is for kids to help other kids who feel that their homework is
overwhelming, and they are left no time to play. Let me say that this is most likely a problem for all kids. Have you stayed up long nights without any breaks, even for dinner?! Many of us have. Here is a collection of tips and tricks that may help you free up your life a bit.
To begin with, it's good if you can organize your things. It is most important that you organize your school papers, as this will save you a lot of time. If you have to search your backpack for a long time to find what you want and materials that you need, you will waste a lot of time that could be spent doing the homework itself.
Try to prioritize your day. Never underestimate the time that it will take you to do your homework, for you may never know what problems you may run into. Most important, of course, is getting it done. Try to give yourself at least one break, but only if you have time. On a normal day, you will hopefully have time for at least one break from homework. "The Washington Post", as well as other sources, have posted articles saying that it is reccomended for a child to have all his/her mandatory work done at least one hour before bedtime so that their brains are not strained and busy before bed. Below are a few tips on ways to learn how to prioritize your day.
Many people would prioritize sports and other activities over homework and other things. These things should also be near the top of your list of priorities, but these may take over your break times. As your teachers may have told you, "Homework comes first. No other activities until your homework is done!" Perhaps this has brought a picture of your teacher with a mean face to your mind. Put that picture out of your head, and just think about this: You have to do all these things whether you want to or not. So, why make everything more boring than it has to be? Granted, you don't need to think that homework is fun, but you still need to do it. When you are done you also need to proofread. Then you can have fun! So, do your homework, proofread it, and then do sports. Sports are also only extra curricular activities, so they should be after homework. Have fun!!
