Helping Your Child Learn

Here are some tips to assist your child in the learning process:

Adjust homework time as your elementary school student matures. The demands of school change a lot after kindergarten. That means study skills have to change, too. Instead of learning to read, for example, older students must read to learn.

Preparing for tests also becomes tougher. To help your child tackle these challenges:

Set the stage–pick a quiet, comfortable spot for studying.

Pay attention to timing–when does you child focus best? When does she or he need breaks?

Plan ahead–when large projects are assigned, divide them into manageable parts.

Practice–taking practice tests can build confidence and relieve anxiety.
