Many elementary and middle schoolers have homework. For this reason, some programs provide dedicated time and space for homework.
These programs may provide:
- Time: Many children have 10 minutes of homework per grade. For example, third graders might have thirty minutes of homework per night. Children can finish their homework before they go home.
- Space: A dedicated, well-lit space without a lot of distractions. Students are also provided with a quiet place to sit and read when they are finished with their homework.
- Materials: Homework centers may provide pencils, computers, and other materials students may need.
- Help: Some programs might provide students with homework help or coaching.
Some programs may also provide extra help with specific subjects. These might include:
- Reading & Writing: Book clubs, story time, a reading library, or help with writing
- Math: Math games, projects, and/or tutoring
- Science: Science projects that expand on lessons learned in school
- Art: Time, materials, and help for solo or group art projects
- Technology: Time for working with technology and building computer skills
