Homework

Homework is a task we do at home to help us with learning.

Homework can help us remember things we did in school or we might have homework that helps us to learn new things.

Most children have homework tasks that they enjoy doing and some tasks that they wish they didn't have to do.

Finding time to do homework can sometimes be difficult. Sometimes we find excuses to do other things we enjoy rather than doing our homework.
Having to do our homework can make us feel annoyed or angry. Many children feel this way.

If we do not do our homework we can make our teachers and parents upset or angry. If we do not do our homework we might also find learning in school much harder.

As we get older we are often expected to do more homework.

Homework is given to help us become better at learning. It is not always fun and most people would rather be doing something else but it can helps us with our learning.

Use the above example to help you create your own social story matched to your child's needs. You may want to modify some of the language for very young children but try to avoid losing precise meaning when using more accessible language. Creating social stories with photos or picture can often help too. This example is available in a printable format below.
