What is the Best Study Routine for Children?

Establishing an academic study routine is paramount to a student’s mastery of the skills they need to progress through their academic career.

A study routine provides a structured framework that promotes discipline, consistency and optimal learning. But it doesn’t happen without work, and this is where the Kumon Method excels.

Kumon’s instruction method provides students with the ability to advance to high school level material through self-learning. Through its tried-and-true method developed more than 60 years ago, students are taught to study independently from an early age and develop both a high level of academic ability and the ability to learn independently. That all starts with establishing a routine for daily study and attending weekly sessions in a local Kumon Center.

The Kumon Method also emphasizes problem-solving skills where students are guided, at their own pace, to work through increasingly complex problems. The method develops a cadence for critical thinking skills as the students progress independently through a carefully crafted math and reading curriculum.

Kumon’s daily practice routine using worksheets helps students develop discipline and perseverance. Setting aside that time can become a positive habit that will allow confidence and independence to flourish. Over time, this consistency contributes to academic success through improved productivity and increased knowledge retention.

Doing a little bit of work every day, consistently, and in a quiet study space, reduces stress levels and promotes a calm and focused mindset. It also allows a student to distribute the workload evenly across the days and weeks while they work through the program. A well-designed, healthy academic routine also includes time for breaks, physical activity and rest to improve well-being.

The individual plans for each student are designed by Instructors to promote these healthy aspects and help your child master their reading and math skills

Individualized lessons are planned by the center Instructor, and the worksheets used are designed to provide examples of the problems to be solved. Students are encouraged to follow examples and solve the problem on their own. If students are unable to solve the problem independently, the Kumon Instructor and Assistants are there to provide the proper support and to nurture the joy of self-learning.

The Kumon Method fosters a sense of confidence in students and encourages their abilities as they work through the program and see their progress. Achieving a goal, no matter how large or small, provides children with a sense of accomplishment. As they continue to meet their milestones throughout the program, students develop a greater belief in their own abilities. Praise, rewards and Kumon’s curriculum can help a student reach their maximum potential.

By establishing strong study habits, self-learning skills and a love for learning, Kumon’s curriculum helps students make the most of their academic potential and personal growth.
