and Study Tips
Homework is a partnership between students, teachers, and guardians.
Organization and time management can work wonders.
Time to Study!
Here are some sure fire ways to develop solid,life long study skills.
- Plan ahead! Study a few minutes each day, not many hours the night before.
- Gather all materials before you start.
- Predetermine a reasonable amount of time or material to be covered in a sitting. This will set a goal to achieve.
- Have a specific place to study away from distractions. (Even yummy kitchen aromas can lead to other thoughts.)
- Focus on your child's strengths.
- If your child is a visual learner, make flash cards with pictures or color code words with similar meanings or relationships. Review the information by discussing the pictures in the text book and on worksheets.
If he/she auditory learner, read text aloud. Make up rhyming chants, acronyms, or short stories using important vocabulary. Have your child teach them to someone else.
If your child is a tactile learner, try a hands on project like creating a model, diagram, or poster. Colorcode key words. Act out a scene from a book or a concept in science. Take a trip to a museum and walk through a related exhibit.
Last, but not least, get a good night sleep and eat a healthy breakfast.
