Help Your Child Study at Home

No comments

1. Establishing a regular study routine is key to helping your child develop good study habits. Set aside a specific time each day for studying and make sure your child sticks to it.

2. Create a distraction-free environment for your child to study in. This could be a quiet room in the house or a specific desk or table. Make sure the area is well lit and free of distractions such as video games, television, and cell phones.

3. Praise your child for their efforts and recognize their successes. Let them know that you are there to support them and offer guidance and assistance when needed.

4. Encourage your child to take notes, review their material regularly, and break large tasks into smaller chunks.

5. Every child has a unique learning style. Be aware of your child’s learning style and accommodate it when helping them with their academic work.

6. Make sure your child enjoys learning. Find ways to make it fun and engaging for them. This could include incorporating games.

7. Ensure your child always has an age-appropriate dictionary to hand and knows how to look up any misunderstood words.

No comments

Summer Camp has officially started with Art Week.  Over the past few days the CLC Campers did many art projects, including going to Art from the Heart Cafe and painting on ceramics for Father’s Day gifts.

The students also made their own t-shirts, sun catchers and clay creations!  

In addition to all of this, they also went to the local swimming pool and had a blast!  (Swimming is a weekly occurrence during Summer Camp!)

Next week is Games Week!  The CLC Campers will be going bowling, miniature golfing and playing a variety of games at the center.
