2. To make homework fun, make a game out of it!! This worked for me and also has been working for my 4 year old as we were doing some at home work to practice for school. It has been proven that kids learn better when they're presented with information in an amusing way. (Song, story, poem, etc...) And it's true. It worked for me when I was in school! If it's information they have to memorize, make up a little song or fun poem that they can use to remember it! Honestly, the kids will remember it for years to come. (I still remember some of the silly songs my mom used for me!) If it's math problems or something of that sort, use quarters, dimes or nickles for every right answer! Earning something will encourage them to actually do the work it takes to get it right rather than to just guess on the answer.
