Oh, how they want to go back to school!
With what impatience they, our children, expected the beginning of the school year, and the August days dragged on, as luck would have, unusually long!
Several times textbooks were shifted for a day, handles, notebooks and other writing materials were moved, a new school uniform was trying on.
With what diligence the schedule of lessons was recorded in the diary, which was re-examined several times with pleasure.
And on the first of September they get up light, not dawn and solemnly have breakfast, carefully comb their hair in front of the mirror and run out of the house without parental haste.
The first lesson is in complete silence, every word of the teacher grasps on the fly and listen to the speeches of classmates with interest.
Forest of hands, maximum attention, accurate neat lines and "aerobatics" of homework.
How can we keep this enthusiasm until the end of the school year?
How can we ensure that our children do not get disappointed for long days before the next summer vacation?
It’s very simple: we need to teach the children to love the learning process. Yes, yes, it is to teach!
After all, you will have to devote a lot of time to school subjects, spend a lot of energy and energy, and this, you will agree, is hard work.
And here, September will be an invaluable service for the development of mastery and easy and easy to overcome training loads.
As children have a good rest, they still have plenty of energy to do important things. Hence, if we continue to pay considerable attention to rest, then the forces will not run out.
Instead of parental reminders: "Do not forget to do the lessons," let the caring sound: "Do not forget to rest." Are you surprised?
There is nothing wrong with schoolchildren, including high school students, arranging a "quiet time" for themselves. Daytime sleep has a beneficial effect on both academic performance and student health.
A visit to the gym, at least four times a week for 40 minutes - is an indispensable condition for cheerfulness.
And then less time will be needed to complete the homework and, as a consequence, going to school will not seem burdensome.
After a good rest, everything will be in time on time: a music school, and an elective in mathematics, and reading books, and household chores ... Is there not enough other business for the younger generation ?!
But before you waste your energy, they need to stock up.
To complete the homework is not delayed for a long time, it is necessary to raise a sense of pace in the child.
To start, turn on the timer for each item. Let this process be similar to a game, but it is this "game" that will not allow you to relax, distract or dream, and the competitive moment "with itself in a race" is very disciplined.
While the timer is ticking, the student gazes with excitement into the study material, without being distracted by extraneous stimuli.
Moreover, "house" becomes an exciting activity, and not a painful obligation. The timer played for a few minutes can be used at its discretion as a well-deserved reward for good work.
Having developed a child’s ability to concentrate as much as possible in the performance of one subject, you can complicate the task and include a timer to perform all exercises in all the given subjects.
The time for the homework should not exceed half an hour for junior schoolchildren, and there should not be more than two hours (for each subject) for high school students.
And if you gradually reduce this time by one minute, then the speed of the homework will increase, and the quality of mastering and / or consolidation of knowledge will improve.
It’s not a secret that students love the subject that is led by their beloved teacher. And, as a rule, these subjects are given increased attention and interest. The remaining items, according to the pupil’s own preferences, are pushed into the background. And, the pupils, consider this decision quite justified and do not see anything terrible in that they ignore some objects.
And while the guys are in high spirits, you must convince them.
Sometimes you have to do things that you do not want at all.
For example, no one likes bitter pills and painful injections, but understanding the significance of these actions and respecting the process of recovery gives a positive result.
Yes, let the child show a preference for a particular subject, but respect for all sciences can play an important role in the future.
In addition, the idols of our children would hardly have reached "stellar" heights if they developed only one way. It is in combination - education and specific hobbies create the destiny of a person.
To praise a child you need for each, even a small victory. But if the evaluation is lower than expected, then in this case it is necessary to support the child. The main thing is not to instill in the pupil "the syndrome of an honors pupil".
Think together how to rectify the situation and restore academic performance.
Kind-hearted parents do not set conditions and do not agree on a material reward in the event that the quarter ends at "excellent". If a child needs a new computer for study, then the computer just needs to buy or explain why it is refused to purchase it. Never "inadequate" academic performance can not serve as a refusal, because a vicious circle is obtained: without "excellent" ratings there will be no computer, and without a computer there will not be proper results. Such are the realities of modern education, and this must be understood and accepted.
Perhaps you noticed that in the summer our children receive fewer comments than during the school year.
September, just like the summer months, is free from the strict control of the parents by inertia and less loaded on the part of the teachers. Do not skimp on the praise, even if the behavior is perceived as ordinary and proper.
Let the September school days become the springboard of success in hard student work.
