Developing Effective at Home Study Habits
With a new school year upon us, this is the perfect opportunity to help our students develop or better their study habits. When the school day is over many students still have homework assignments to complete and tests to prepare for. This is why it is so important for parents to help build these skills at home.
Dr. Erin Millard and Dr. Geoffery Putt of the Akron Children’s Hospital have compiled a list of good study habits. I would like to take this opportunity to highlight just a few, which as a teacher I think are key.
- Give your child a 30-minute break immediately after school to have a snack or play outside before beginning homework. Don’t let your child start a TV show or play a video game, because it is difficult for them to break away and may turn into an argument.
- Designate a specific place for homework and studying that’s free from clutter and away from the TV and other distractions.
- Set aside time each day for homework. Encourage your student to stay at the desk or table for 30 minutes, even if they are finished. This will help to make study time a part of the daily routine.
- Provide a 2-3 minute break every 15-20 minutes to help keep your child going; if a break lasts too long, it will be hard to get the child back on track.
To help keep your child motivated throughout the year and studying hard have some incentives. These do not need to be monetary or bribes, but things that they would choose to do. Self-selected incentives are more often effective.
It is very important to acknowledge effort from your child. When they get a good grade from studying or improve a grade in a class, make it a big deal and show them that their hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.
