Victoria Day weekend is approaching, the sun is out and the days are getting longer. There are only weeks left of school.
However, with summer coming soon, students can often step back and lose focus. With exams around the corner and report cards following shortly, it is important for students to finish the school year strong and avoid distractions.
With several weeks left, students have time to make improvements through end of year assignments, tests, homework and final exams to bring up their marks.
Here are some tips to stay focused and finish the school year strong:
Celebrate Success: Look back through your agenda, binders and notebooks to remind your child of all the great things they have accomplished this year. With the opportunity to be distracted from other things, it may help renew their drive to succeed.
Set Goals: With several weeks remaining, set goals for the remainder of the school year and make a realistic plan to achieve them. This will also encourage students to start thinking about next school year and help avoid the summer slide.
Use the Weather to Your Advantage: The nice weather can be a distraction, but there is nothing wrong with getting fresh air while continuing to study.
Ask for Help: With projects due and exams coming up, don't be afraid to ask your teacher or a tutor for help.
