Here is a situation I encounter far too often...
Appropriate boundaries and trust should be earned by your child. You wouldn't give them the keys to the car without being ready. Don't trust them to do their math homework properly until they are ready either. While we know students need to make mistakes and be humbled before reaching out for support, let these not encompass a whole quarter of the school year or progress report period. Give your child a night, two nights, or a week to show what they can do and step in if the result is anything less than what you desire. They'll thank you later but their math teacher will thank you now :)
Brain Science says that people need to utilize certain strategies in order to be effective learners. These strategies are free, easy, and effective. Do you know what they are? Watch this video and you will!
This is the bread and butter of a successful learner. Retrieval can be practiced at all levels, at all ages, and set students apart from their peers. They just need to know what is is and what to do!
Did you know that forgetting is part of learning? Forgetting gives us opportunity to remember. Remembering is the key to long term retention. Practice concepts a day, a week, and a month later regularly and then pull them out every so often to keep them fresh in your mind. Brain Science says this is how we remember things for a long time.
