The new school year is underway and students are probably falling back into their familiar routines by now. But a new year is also a welcome invitation to create some new routines! Encourage your child to spend some additional time each night reviewing their class notes, organizing their binders, looking ahead for upcoming tests and long-term assignments, or creating some flash cards. Even 5-10 minutes of extra time in one subject per night can make a difference in their retention of the material! This approach will also help to instill good study habits in the long term. Here’s to a great year everyone!
