Study Tips

Here are two study tips from over 1,500 tips submitted by students and teachers

Math has always been hard for me. I'm in algebra now. I'm real careful to copy down ALL the steps my teacher uses when she shows us how to solve a problem. Miss one step and you'll be lost later. Also, don't just try to memorize formulas. You have to understand them and practice using them.

SEE ALL STUDY TIPS

I use flash cards to study vocabulary words. I write the word on one side and what it means on the other. I mix the cards up and look at the word. I say what it means and then look at the back to see if I was right. I have the cards with me and do this a lot of times.

Teaching Tips

Here are two teachings tips from our collection of over 250 practical tips

Good Writing Position

Whether your students are writing in print or cursive (a disappearing form), they can improve the legibility of their writing by maintaining a good writing position. Writing in a good position promotes proper size, formation, and spacing of letters 


Transition from recess or PE

Some students become overly excited and even hyperactive following recess or PE. Follow the physical activity with a brief quiet time (five to ten minutes) in which the students listen to calming music. You can also do this after a test or a long period of seat work. Doing this can also have the positive by-product of developing your students' appreciation for music.
