When it comes to buying school supplies most of us have the basics in mind, such as books and binders, pens and pencils, book bags and lunch boxes. And if you have young children you have to get that certain transformers tote bag or that particular Dora the explorer pencil case. But there is one very important tool that not many parents or students consider. If your child is in grade six or above their life at school will be a whole lot easier if they have this.
A studying manual. A guide that teaches you how to get A's in any subject you take. A guide that will teach you the proper techniques and strategies to spend less time in front of the books and get A's on every test or exam you write. When a student gets into high school, it will be very important to reach a certain level of grades. This is especially true if the student wants to further their education and go on to university or college. Some universities and colleges require certain grades in certain subjects to be accepted into their programs.
Many students just do not know how to study. I know my daughter did not and I couln't seem to explain it to her. What worked for me did not seem to work for her. Each student is unique in their own way and the staying after school for extra help helped some but it was not the answer when it came to exam time.
I found the answer in a guide that actually taught her how to spend less time and achieve better results. She was able to go from 63.4 average to a 91.7 from mid-terms to final exams. Needless to say she got that new bike she wanted after finishing grade 7 with marks like that. I was so proud of her.
