My favourite subject is art because it’s my hobby and I learnt new art and crafts. My favourite part of school is when we have lunch or break we can gather all of us together and chat and we can get news. I like to chat with my friends and tell jokes and make your friends have a smile on their face always. Here are some tip for getting your homework done:-

1.    Work in a comfortable, well-lit environment. Try sitting at a desk in a padded, comfortable chair. Avoid doing homework on the floor or on your bed, because these areas are more likely to make you sleepy and distracted. Also, make sure that you’re working in a well-lit area so you don’t have to strain your eyes to read.

2.    Eliminate distractions by putting away your electronics and isolating yourself. Turn off your cell phone, log off of your computer (unless you will need it for your homework), turn off the television and close the door. Let your family and friends know that you do not want to be disturbed while working so they can respect your privacy.

3.    Download website-blocking apps such as Freedom or Self Control to stay focused while using your computer for homework. Set a timer.

4.    At the start of each assignment or subject, start a timer with however many minutes you’re aiming to complete your work in. You can regularly glance at the timer to stay aware of how much time is going by and how much you have left. This will help you realise when you’re spending too much time on something, and will quickly snap you back into focus when you get distracted. If one subject or type of assignment is taking much more time than the others, you may want to ask for a little extra help in that area from your teacher or parent.

5.    Get your supplies in order. To avoid wasting time looking for things, have all your books, papers, writing utensils, and other materials readily available and easy to get to. Clean out your backpack and binder(s) weekly or monthly consider consolidating your multiple different subject folders and notebooks into one big binder separated by tab dividers. This way, all of your schoolwork will be in one place.

6.    Make a homework plan for the evening. Instead of just grabbing the first book in your backpack and starting the work, plan ahead. There are several ways that you can plan out how to do your homework for the evening, including:

  • Decide how much time you want to spend on your homework collectively.
  • Make a list of all the different tasks you need to finish.
  • Estimate how much time you’ll be able to spend on each task to finish your homework when you want to.
  • Work straight through your list and cross tasks off as you go.

7.    Start your homework soon after you get home from school. Waiting too long in the evening to start may result in working late into the night, which isn’t good because it’s much harder to work quickly when you’re tired. Similarly, waiting until the next morning to do your homework will probably result in a rushed or incomplete end result.

8.    Prioritise by due date and importance. As you write assignments down in your planner throughout the week, make sure to write an “A” next to high priority tasks, a “C” next to lower priority tasks, and a “B” next to tasks that fall somewhere in between. An assignment that has to be completed by the next day would probably take priority over one that’s due next Tuesday. Also prioritise bigger assignments over smaller ones. A ten page essay that’s due in a week that you haven’t started should be labelled an “A” or “B” while a short five question worksheet due in three days may be labelled a “C”. Make sure you don't wait until the last second to get assignments done.
