Tips to Get Your Students Through the Last Weeks of School
With only a few weeks left until the end of the school year, it’s important to make sure your child stays motivated until the last day of class. Students tend to lose focus as spring arrives. However, there is still time to get better grades, study harder and complete an extra credit project. Most importantly, there’s still time to make a BIG difference on the final report card.
If grades need improving, the time to get started is right now! There are still end-of-year projects, group work, and final exams on the horizon. The truth is that this is the perfect time to renew a sense of school dedication. Because even though the school year is ending, a lot can be accomplished in the time left.
Maintain a routine in your child’s homework time, family mealtime, bedtime, wake-up time, and any other daily rituals you have. This will help keep your child in the mindset for school and improve his or her focus in the classroom right up to the last day of the school.
Schedules have kept students organized throughout the school year and now’s not the time to leave them at the bottom of a school bag. Flip through the agenda for a reminder of everything that has been achieved so far this year. Set goals on school schedule geared towards final projects and tests.
Students that need a leg up could really benefit from taking on extra credit projects. Talk to teachers about bonus projects or assignments. Teachers look favorably on students who make an effort, and this is especially important when it comes to creating final report cards.
End-of-year projects and exams can stress even the most organized students. Get extra help, by going to your teacher for help, or getting a tutor. This will help manage current workload and learn helpful tips to make studying for finals stress-free.
Make the rest of this year count. The clock may be ticking on the school year, but there is still time to make this grade the best grade ever!
