If you have kids in school, then you know how much they dislike to do their homework and study. They create constant nagging and tend to procrastinate as much as possible. Are there anything parents can do to help these kids with their study and homework? Here are 4 tips for parents to create positive learning environment for kids.
Create Their Private Study Room
All student should have their own private study room, away from distractions. This room should be quiet place and does not need to be big. Consider placing a laptop or desktop computer in this room for them to use as reference. I would even recommend a tablet such as new iPad or Galaxy Note instead of a computer.
Personalize Study Workspace
Try to get kid’s attention by personalizing this study room. Consider painting the desk or get a nice swivel chair. You can spend time with your child to decorate this room with pictures, awards, or stickers. Also consider adding a chalkboard and a calendar on the wall. The idea here is to get your child interested in spending quality time in this study room.
Supplies, Supplies, Supplies
You do not want to run out of supplies for your child. Cover the basic supplies such as notepads, pens and pencils, calculator, stapler, index cards scissors, and tape. You can use supplies to get their interests by choose bright colors and interesting designed supplies.
Install New Software or Apps as Study Aid
There are tons of free software you can download or links to websites that can help your child with homework or provide more sample questions for study. For example, if your child is learning Pre-Algebra, then you can download free worksheets. In addition to free downloads, there are free iPad/iPhone Apps that you can download as study guides. Consider iPad app called Elevated Math for help your child study Pre-Algebra.
