SVMS 6th Grade Homework Tips for Students and Parents


  • In 6th grade we expect approximately one to two “working” hours on school work.


  • For Math, have your student stick to a time limit, and then have him/her come to class with questions about homework he/she didn’t understand.


  • If your student needs to take a break every 15 minutes, set a timer, take a break, then set the timer again for another 15 minutes.


  • Plan your week using the SVMS SchoolLoop 6th Grade Calendar, which is updated at the beginning of each week.


  • Set aside space to work, with all necessary supplies.


  • Have student do homework where you can easily supervise.


  • Put distractions away during homework time!!! Examples can include social media devices, video games, and TV.

  • Don’t forget that 6th graders require good nutrition and rest to function well at school.
