Test-Taking Preparation Tips

Test-Taking Preparation Tips

 

Help your child with test taking preparation with the goal of reinforcing knowledge and understanding, to build your child’s confidence and help lay the groundwork for a lifetime of good study skills.

 

Create A Test-taking Study Schedule For Your Child: This will help you and your child stay on schedule.

Find Out What Kinds Of Questions Are On The Test: The test may consist of short-answer, multiple-choice, essay, or a combination of the three.

Discuss With Your Child What Could Be On The Test: Most teachers will send home study questions, practice problems, and key pieces of information for review.  Review the information carefully and help your child write down answers and key pieces of information so they can review it later.  Also, review class notes together and parts of the textbook that deal with those particular topics and issues. Ask your child what pages the teacher stressed, and whether there are any maps, charts, or extra reading they need to know.

Remember Test Taking Basics.  Remember to use the five W’s: who, what, when, where, and why.

Teach Test Taking Skills.  Your child should read the test all the way through answering the questions they know well first, then go back to answer the questions they were unsure.

Divide and Conquer.  Divide information into small chunks, such as chapters for social studies, groups of 10 word problems at a time for math, 5 vocabulary words for language arts, etc.

Student Created Flash Cards.  Flash cards are a great way for your child to quiz themselves and the process of making the flash cards is also a valuable study session. Plus, writing it down helps them to visualize the material come test day. Example Ideas:

  • Vocabulary word on the front side; definition on the back
  • Name of math formula on the front; example of how to use the formula on the back
  • Major historical event on the front; date it occurred on the back
  • Name of character from book on the front; significance of character to the story on the back

Review Notes Nightly: Studying 15-20mins nightly helps to retain the information instead of cramming the night before the test.

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Bloom Where You Are Planted

 Bloom Where You Are Planted

This is a well-known saying that creates smiles and encourage hope.  Yes, it is a new year and we have resolutions to write and goals to achieve with hopes of making a difference in our life and a difference in the lives of others.

So, are you in the right garden?  Of course you are.  Trust that God is the Master Gardner and he has placed you in the space where you belong.  Remember, he wants to see us bloom in spiritual maturity reflecting the love he so freely gave us.  We can do more than we realize when we trust that we are in the right garden.  No one else can do what you or I are destined to do or fill our place in the garden, so let’s bloom! Boom!

Thank you God for every new day you have given us and the new days to come in 2018.

Remember as you begin to write your goals there are three important areas to keep in mind:

  1. Make It Personal

Your resolutions should be doable and meaningful to you.  Doable meaning realistic to you and your lifestyle, time, and resources.  Is it what you think and want for yourself or is it what someone else wants for you?  You must own them, because the roadblocks will pop up to try and stop you, but trust and believe God.

  1. Create A Plan

The best way to achieve success is with a plan; a business plan, a lesson plan, a game plan, “You Gotta Have a Plan.”  Remember, no matter how well you plan, change is hard. “You’re up against a part of yourself that’s not going to change easily nor does it want too. You need to really create action steps!  Step by step in order to manage it in small achievable goals.  Studies suggest that willpower is a limited resource and if you make too many resolutions, you won’t have enough willpower reserves to stick to all of them.  Maybe it’s better for you to make one resolution, stick to it and succeed, instead of five resolutions and no success; just a suggestion.

  1. Find Your Community

You should let a person or two know that you are setting a goal.  Need more input or a larger community then share it on social media, Yikes!  You will feel like you have a community supporting you and they want to see you succeed.   Be careful with social media it can be a double-edged sword; positive or negative, sympathy or pushy, friends or people you don’t know.  Either way having an accountability partner, an encourager is great!

Hello 2018, I am looking forward to “Blooming Where God Has Planted” me!  He is the Master Gardener!

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Psalm 139:14
