Looking for ways to get organized? Free printables, like this homework chart printable, are a great first step! They’re a quick and easy way to help get the whole family on the same page.
Getting organized, especially before heading into a new school year, is always an admirable goal. However, it isn’t just Mom and Dad that need to get their game face on… your kiddo probably needs a little help getting into the routine as well. That’s where this homework chart kids printable can really come in handy.
Even if your kiddo was a champ about keeping track of assignments in the past, there’s a pretty good chance that all of the summer sun and fun erased those good habits. So, set him or her up for success with this free homework chart printable.
A daily homework chart, like this one, is a great way to get your child re-adjusted to the notion of doing homework. However, it doesn’t have to just be used at the beginning of the school year. Use this free homework chart printable again and again to make sure your kiddo (and you) stay on track throughout the year whether it’s day one or day 100!
Now, I know that most schools hand out student assignment planners at the beginning of the year, but in my experience, those end up at the bottom of a locker doomed to never see the light of day again. What’s great about this free homework chart printable is that you can easily print one for each child and hang it on the fridge (or in some other highly trafficked area) where it’s super visible. Having the homework chart kids printable where everyone can see it will help ensure accountability.
Plus, if you have more than one kiddo, this is an easy way to see everyone’s assignments without having to flip through multiple planners.
Tip: If your child is using a school planner this daily homework chart is still a good idea because, as mentioned above, they’re a little easier to keep in eyesight. Simply have your child write his or her assignments on the free homework chart printable after school each day. (Writing out the assignment should also help it stick in his or her mind!)
Don’t stop at writing assignments on this free homework chart printable! As your child finishes up, have him or her cross off completed tasks or place a fun sticker over them.
Tip: One way to motivate your child to complete his or her homework without being nagged is to set up rewards. For example, tell your child that if he or she does all of their homework for the week without being reminded and marks it off on the daily homework chart you’ll give him or her a special treat, reward, or privilege. Keep in mind that the free homework chart printable reward does not have to be something super unhealthy or expensive. Rather, it can be something as simple as a special family movie night complete with coconut oil popcorn.
This free homework chart printable is a great way to help your child keep track of school work and learn responsibility. Plus, it’s super simple to use!
Expanded Homework Chart Printable
Sadly, especially as your kids get older, sometimes homework can’t be contained to just Monday through Friday. Nope, sometimes it’s going to spill over into the weekend. 🙁 That’s why I put together this expanded homework chart printable, which includes blocks for Saturday and Sunday.
Tip: Okay, I was a total nerd growing up, but even I know homework over the weekend can be a bummer. If you are incentivizing the printable homework chart so that your child can earn rewards for an academic job well done, consider making assignments done over the weekend worth more.
While this printable homework chart includes space for weekend work, that isn’t the only addition. I also wanted to make it easier to keep track of more details, especially if you have more than one child’s academic progress to oversee. With that in mind, this expanded homework chart printable includes fields for:
- Name – If you only have one kiddo to worry about, this field probably isn’t super pertinent, but any parent who has juggled multiple math assignments in a single day is sure to appreciate a way to easily set copies of this printable homework chart apart from one another!
- Week – Write the start and end dates for the week in this field. This can be especially helpful if you’re printing out multiple copies of this homework chart printable so you can schedule out future homework assignments or study sessions.
- Notes – An extra field for any additional things you may want to keep track of. For example, I might use the notes field on this printable homework chart to jot down things I need to do for my son such as pick up certain materials for his projects, like index cards, or signing a report card or a test to prove I saw it.
