Start The School Year Right With These Helpful Hints!

 
Where did the Summer go?
 
A new school year has started. As the old adage says, “time sure flies!”
 
To get the school year started right, here are some helpful hints:
 
1. Set up a routine: This includes sticking to an earlier bedtime and having regular, set study hours. Homework and studying should be done in a tidy and quiet place with minimal or no distractions. Get in the habit of putting completed assignments in a homework folder and in your backpack right away to avoid turning in late homework.
 
2. Get organized and stay organized: Don’t wait until you are disorganized to make sure all your papers, notes and assignments have a proper place. Ideally, every subject should have its own binder and backpacks should be routinely cleaned (weekly) with old papers and assignments removed and filed for use when studying for upcoming tests.
 
3. Get a planner and check it daily: Keep an assignment book and calendar that you check multiple times each day. Record what is due and make sure you have a realistic plan to accomplish all homework assignments, and ensure you have ample time to study for quizzes and tests.
 
4. Set goals: Have an idea of the grades you are shooting for and the time you can commit to studying. Track your progress weekly. These goals should be realistic, measurable and achievable.
 
5. Get help early: Don’t wait too long to ask for help. A coach or tutor might be just the person to bring in early to make sure you or your student gets started right and stays on track. ThoughtLink is happy to help!
