Develop Quick Reference Guides for Simplified Review

Whether it’s on index cards, a digital note, quick reference guides is a proven method for solidifying understanding. Research indicates that the act of writing down information enables students to process and memorize it more effectively compared to just reading.

Furthermore, these reference guides act as concise refreshers that assist your child in recalling complex science formulas or specific scientific concepts—think of it as a tool that helps unearth valuable insights, much like a detector sweeping for hidden treasures.

To craft such a guide, simply select a chapter or topic from your chosen subject. Write down the essential information, including formulas, crucial definitions, and main ideas. Consider incorporating color-coding or illustrative sketches to elucidate complex points. This tool is for your child’s benefit, so personalize it in a way that will make the information resonate with them, whether that involves highlighting the intricacies of cellular functions or the nuances of historical events.

Encourage creativity and imaginative expression in this process. However, it is vital to exercise restraint—these guides should be succinct and focused. Aim for brevity, avoiding the temptation to turn a quick reference into a full-fledged textbook.

Alternatively, use FortisLearn Flashcards to assist with your revisions, it is a simpler and easier approach.

#4
Align Study Sessions with Your Body Clock

Is your child a morning person? Or perhaps more of a night owl? Or maybe they hit their stride in the mid-afternoon? Identifying your child’s peak productivity hours is key—once you find that window, secure it, and optimize it for their learning sessions.

Studies indicate that students who aren’t naturally inclined to wake up early tend to perform less well in classes held during early morning hours. While rearranging class schedules isn’t within your control, what you can control is when your child dedicates time to review and study. Schedule these sessions for the times when your child is most alert and focused.

Additionally, fostering healthy sleep habits is essential. Prioritize establishing a regular sleep schedule that ensures your child remains mentally sharp and ready to retain new information.
