. Step 1 Start early. Make sure Your Child begins to study several days before the test. Start taking little steps on the day you become aware there will be a test. Never wait until the last day to study. This is stressful and ineffective
Step 2 Use Your child's time wisely. If the Test is on facts or spelling words, make flashcards. Hand Your Child two flashcards when you get into the car and ask them to know the facts or know the spelling of the words by the time you arrive at Your destination. Two cards are not overwhelming and can Help to break the necessary studying down to a manageable level. Then, when you arrive home, they can add a couple more cards. This will break up the studying and it will not seem so overwhelming. Your child, although they may not tell you, will appreciate and remember Your Help and involvement. . Step 3
Make sure Your Child understands what they are studying. Do they know what the words they are studying mean? Can they use them in a sentence? Do they understand the story that is the basis for the facts they need to memorize. If Your Child understands the material they are studying, they are more likely to retain information
. Step 4 Make sure you Child goes to bed early the night before a test. A well-rested Child will perform better
. Step 5 Serve Your Child a good breakfast the morning of the test. Make sure they awake in time to eat and not have a stressful and rushed morning. Wish them luck!
