Tips to Motivate Elementary Students Who Do Not Want To Do Homework

1. Set goals and times for goals and use a timer for student to beat their own time. Reward students for ACCURATE, complete, and fast work

2. Have students do hardest stuff first to get it out of the way

3. Take short breaks (5-15 min) between subjects when doing homework

4. Have students do homework right after school to get it over with and then have a reward activity after

5. Post a schedule so students know expectations and what they can do after homework
