The bedroom can be a great place to do your homework, not only is it a comfortable and familiar space but it is also a private place where you can be free from interruption and the distractions of the rest of your family. But when it comes to homework there are good bedrooms and bad bedrooms. Making the bedroom a good place to do homework means that a student will be able to do their best work and reach their full potential.
The first and most important thing to do when making the bedroom a good place to study is make sure that it is kept clean. A clean and tidy room will inspire feeling of pride and will help the student to feel more positive. It will also help them to feel more organised, hence the phrase “tidy house, tidy mind” A messy bedroom will not only give the student a good excuse to avoid doing their homework because they will want to tidy their room, anything other than doing homework but it will also leave them feeling negative and less likely to want to do their homework in a messy room.
Ensuring that the student has adequate supplies is essential to ensuring that they do their homework, they should have a big, clean desk, a comfortable chair, plenty of paper and pencils and other stationery and a computer if necessary.
Motivational pictures and posters might seem cheesy to an adult but they have been shown to have a positive effect. Also, placing educational pictures around will help the student to feel more inspired to learn.
Being disturbed can be a real pain if you are trying to work so ensure that the child is not disturbed by parents or other family members. A do not disturb order during homework time can potentially mean that the student gets much more done.
Snacks might not seem like a priority when it comes to homework but if they have a lot to do then they will need food. Small healthy snacks and healthy fruit juices will not only mean that they are full up and will not be tempted to wander out of their room in search of food, it will also mean that they have enough energy to carry out their tasks.
Having a bedroom in which to do your homework can make you feel as though you have some privacy and it will also make you feel as though your parents respect the fact that you have work to do.
