Incorporating Kumon into the School Year Routine
The transition from summer break to the new school year can be an adjustment for both children and parents. The entire family must adapt to changes in daily schedules and levels of activity. Getting the new school year off to a good start can influence a child’s attitude, confidence and performance in class.
Here are a few tips to fine-tune your child’s study skills:
- Make homework a priority before other activities can take place.
- Set a productive work space to minimize distractions.
- Have school supplies and reference materials readily accessible.
- Focus on your child’s efforts and not only their results. This puts him or her in a positive mind frame even if mistakes are made.
- Regularly communicate with your child’s teacher to establish clear learning goals.
- Praise and reward your child for a job well done.
