4 Best Techniques For Tackling Summer Homework

Oh dear! Summer homework is the dreaded two words of many students throughout their scholastic careers. The two words just don’t seem to go together! Summer is for having fun, playing and being free. Homework is just the opposite. It is structured, mandatory, and strict and definitely cuts into free time. Here are four techniques to make summer homework tolerable:

  1. Balance homework with play – This is something that can be done quite easily. If you have a couple of hours of homework to do each day, just understand that it really isn’t that long and there is still plenty of time to play and relax with the rest of the day.
  2. Get it over with early in the day – Believe it or not, if you just get to the work and get it done, you won’t believe how great you will feel. Just imagine, getting up, eating breakfast, and doing your homework. Then imagine the rest of the entire day you can do what you want and relax and have a great time. If you don’t do it right away, it will be hanging over your head all day and you will be forced to think about it. Get up, get it done, and forget about it. Try it just once and see how good it feels.
  3. Break it up into stages – If you have a lot to do and it isn’t feasible to do it all at once, and then break it up into stages. Do some of it in the morning after breakfast, then have some fun. Do some more after lunch and then take another break. Then if you haven’t finished, do the rest after dinner. By breaking up your work, you learn to budget your time as well as learn that you can relax and still have fun.
  4. Don’t get into the situation where it is necessary in the first place – Most of the time the reason you have summer homework is because you didn’t do the work during the school year. If you complete all of your work during school and do a good job, you won’t have to worry about doing it during the summer when all the other kids are at the beach. Do the work when you should do it and you won’t have to worry about it when the sun is shining and you should be running around without a care in the world.
