1) Make a Schedule

Making a schedule is one of the best ways to ensure that your child is studying and developing good study habits. Creating a schedule will allow you to keep track of when your child is studying and what they are focusing on. It will also help them plan their time more effectively so that they can have enough time for all their activities.

When creating a schedule, make sure it's realistic for your child's lifestyle and age. It should have enough breaks for rest and play so that your child doesn't get overwhelmed. Additionally, make sure there is flexibility for unexpected events or days off from school. It can be helpful to establish daily routines such as setting aside a regular time each day for your child to do their homework or reading assignments.

2) Establish a Routine

Establishing a study routine can help your child to focus and stay motivated. This can involve setting aside time each day for studying, as well as having the same place dedicated specifically for studying. Additionally, it can be helpful to have certain activities such as writing notes or reading through material before starting the actual task of studying.This will help your child get in the mindset of studying instead of just jumping right into it.

In addition, it can be helpful to set specific goals for each study session. This will give your child a sense of accomplishment and keep them on track. Make sure the goals are realistic and achievable so that your child doesn't get discouraged.

3) Create a Positive Study Environment

It's important to create an environment that is conducive to studying. Make sure there are no distractions such as TVs, radios, or phones in the area where your child is studying. Additionally, make sure it's well-lit and comfortable so that they don't become too uncomfortable while studying. Having some study supplies such as paper, pens, and textbooks nearby can also help keep your child organized and on task.

It's also important to provide support and encouragement throughout the process of developing good study habits. Be available to answer questions and provide assistance when needed. Let your child know that you are there for them and that you believe in their potential. You could even go as far as setting them up with great resources like Generation Genius for an added layer of support and guidance.

Finally, make sure to praise your child for their efforts! Acknowledge their successes and celebrate the progress they make along the way. This will help keep them motivated and focused on their studies.

In conclusion, developing good study habits is essential for your child's success in school and beyond. By following these tips, you can help them establish productive studying routines and create a positive environment that fosters learning. With your guidance and support, your child will be well on their way to becoming an effective student!

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
