Tips for Studying: A Guide for Kids

Create a Schedule

Organization can go a long way in helping you keep track of all of your assignments. So, begin by creating a schedule. Come up with a plan to ensure you are studying on a consistent basis. Test grades in school will usually account for a big percentage of your overall grade, so you'll want to mark upcoming test dates on your schedule as well as daily and weekly assignments.

Find a Quiet Location

Once you know when you are going to study, it's also important to determine where you will study. Studying is challenging enough; don't add to the difficulty by working where there are lots of distractions, like the television. If you choose to study at home, you'll probably want to choose a room or spot with the least amount of traffic from others. You can also choose to study somewhere other than your house, like your local public library.

Ask for Resources

This is often overlooked when it comes to studying, but your sessions will only be as good as the study materials you have at your disposal. Therefore, ask your teachers for additional resources. Most teachers will be glad to help you out and will be proud of the initiative you are taking to stay on top of your grades. Often, they can even provide you with practice tests and assignments. You can also do a search for other study resources on the Internet.

Form a Study Group

Since studying can be boring and difficult to do on your own, you may want to form a study group with fellow classmates or friends. Not only can studying with others make the activity more engaging and exciting, but it can also make the review session more effective. When you study in a group, you're able to benefit from the educational strengths of others. Furthermore, as a group, you can add more creativity to the study session by turning it into a game or competition.
