While your child may be able to do homework on his/her own now, it is unlikely that s/he will be able to take on the task of studying alone. Here are some studying tips:
Study Strategies for third graders:
*Make and use flash cards.
*Create practice problems.
*Teach a friend, parent, or sibling.
*Help a friend to study.
*Write or say the answers when someone else reads you the questions.
*Rewrite vocabulary and definitions.
*Draw pictures to explain concepts.
*Make up songs or raps to help remember.
*Toss a ball as you answer questions.
*Use mnemonics like:
Never Eat Soggy Waffles (North, East, South, West).
When we take tests, I encourage the students to answer easy questions first and star the difficult ones to return to them later. In a multiple choice problem, they can also cross out the options that are definitely not the answer, to help narrow down the choices.
