Do you find it hard to get your son or daughter to study? Would their grades improve if they had better study skills and resources? If you answered yes to either question, we have some helpful tips for you!
GreatSchools.org is a wonderful online resource with tips to help your child prepare for a successful study session. The site is for mainly middle school students, but you can apply most of the rules to all students. Simple tips such as how to organize their study space, plan time to study, and having proper study materials can go a long way toward helping your child be successful.
If you prefer the approach of helping your child directly, then you may want to refresh your memory on topics you learned in school. A good place to get started is Internet Public Library. This online resource can help anyone with a wide range of topics. Here you can look up information that you need, or your child can go there to do research. It has everything your child needs to advance learning. Topics include arts and crafts, nutritional information, and even information on athletics and sports.
If studying in the traditional way is not working for your child, you should look online at Fun Brain for a more interactive approach to studying. Don't let the fact that it is full of games discourage you from letting your child go there. The games provided on this great, interactive site teaches your child a variety subjects while reinforcing basic skills in math, reading, science, and other subjects. Remember, even though they are playing games, they are learning. Any kind of learning is good!
