Staying organized will make it easier to do your best in school. Remember to write down what your assignments are every day. Check them off as you finish them. You will feel a sense of accomplishment with each check mark.

Keep important papers organized so you can easily find them if you need them. You may want to have a variety of folders in different colors or three-ring binders so you can place your papers in them according to subject. Worksheets that you have completed or notes you have taken will come in handy when test time comes around.

Pay attention in all your classes and remember to take good notes. If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask your teacher for help. Everyday you’ll learn new things. It’s important to understand the lessons you are covering today in order to make tomorrow’s subjects easier to learn.

Don’t put off studying until the last minute. True, the idea of tackling your homework right after a long day of school may not sound appealing but putting it off until late that night when you’re sleepy is not a good idea. Schoolwork should be a priority, not an afterthought.

Do your best. Set goals for yourself and strive each day to reach them. Success takes work and commitment.

How parents can help students study

  • Set a time and place for a regular study routine. 
  • Supervise and check student’s homework.
  • Meet with your child’s teacher.
  • Be an example: read, visit museums, go to concerts, take walks.
