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.
