Make Your Home Learning-Friendly
Many students do homework or study outside of class and families can help to improve their regular study habits by following a few helpful tips.
Studying can be made to feel like a daunting task thanks to piles of papers and workbooks. You can help by organizing your child’s learning materials and storing them in a particular area such as a filing cabinet or using paper folders for each individual subject. A chart could be posted on the inside front cover of said folders to note the completion of assignments and chapters and track studying time.
Noise levels from televisions, phones and other outside noises can be very distracting to children who are trying to study. Try and avoid playing video games or having loud conversations while your child is trying to study and if possible silence electronic devices which can also interfere with concentration.
Having a specific room or table for the child to be able to study at is very helpful, creating an environment which is conducive to learning as well as helping the student to get organized.
