Baby Steps- For Homework Help

Struggles with homework?

Homework HelpThink back to when your little one was learning to walk-there was a whole big process that took place: holding his head up, turning over, sitting up, crawling, cruising, standing for brief moments of time, balancing, and then after lots of practice- the first step!  As he took the many steps that followed,   knowledge of what to do and his confidence grew.

In education scaffolding is used to help learn large or new amounts of information. Scaffolding helps students build confidence while learning something, new just like baby steps. By breaking up learning into smaller chunks and then providing support confidence and knowledge combine to help the student reach the next step in the learning process.

At home, we can take it for granted that our children already know the information in their homework. When there is a struggle with homework parents can also use scaffolding to help them out:

~ Break down the work into smaller chunks
~ Ask your child to do each of the chunks separately
~ Review and connect each of the chunks
~Go back to the original question and have them try it again

Share how you have used scaffolding to make homework easier.
