Study aims to help kids who have ADHD with their learning

5 things you can do immediately to help your child succeed in school

Ensure regular attendance
To keep up with a face paced curriculum a teacher has to continue moving forward with their class, regardless of who’s absent. As every class builds on the previous, if your child misses one lesson, it creates a gap in their learning. When they return back to school they may feel lost. Therefore, when absences occur, please make sure you ask for any homework given and ensure your child completes it before returning to school.

Turn In All Homework
Homework teaches pupils to work independently and it also helps the teacher pin point where a pupil is facing difficulty. It is essential, therefore, that all homework be completed by-your-child and turned in on time.

Encourage Your Child with Praise
Your child’s self-esteem is important to their success. It is important for you to praise them when they’re doing well and give them encouragement when they need it. They need to believe they are succeeding and can succeed and this depends largely on what you say to them.

Avoid Multi-tasking
Some pupils believe they can follow the teacher and take notes at the same time or complete their homework and watch TV! This approach does not work. Logically pupils can only give their full attention to one thing or the other. Please encourage good study habits by reminding your child concentrate on one thing at a time.

Encourage Reading
The foundation for success in school is good reading habits. Read with your child. As they get older encourage them to read on their own and always try to set a good example by reading in their company. Make reading a fun thing you do together.
Competition in schools is stronger today than ever before. Set your child up to succeed by following these five simple tips. What is learned in school today will directly impact their success as adults in the workforce tomorrow.

A Japanese Method to Develop Creativity in Kids

Japanese people are known for their intelligence, politeness, and wellness. Why is this nation so unique and different from the rest of the world? It seems we’ve found the answer – they have an incredibly cool education system and unique teaching methods! There is a unique method in Japanese schools for developing creativity in kids. We believe that the whole world needs to adopt it! It’s called “Nameless paints.” In this video, we’ll tell you how it works. Watch till the end – there is a small but brilliant bonus for you.

– “Nameless paints” includes ten tubes that don’t have color names such as “yellow,” “blue,” or “green.” Instead, there are only spots of a particular color or colors on each tube. As you can see, the spots are also different sizes.
– In Japanese schools, students don’t take any exams until they reach grade four (the age of 10). The goal for the first three years of school is not to judge the child’s knowledge, but to establish good manners and to develop their character.
– While most schools in the world begin their academic year in September or October, in Japan, it is April that marks the start of the academic and business calendar. The first day of school often coincides with one of the most beautiful natural phenomena — the time of cherry blossom.
– In Japanese schools, students have to clean the classrooms, cafeterias, and even toilets all by themselves. Most Japanese schools do not employ janitors or custodians.
– All classmates eat in their classroom together with the teacher. This helps build positive teacher-student relationships.
– To get into a good junior high school, most Japanese students enter a preparatory school or attend private after-school workshops.
– Japanese calligraphy, or Shodo, involves dipping a bamboo brush in ink and using it to write hieroglyphs on rice paper.
– While some schools have their attire, traditional Japanese school uniform consists of a military style for boys and a sailor outfit for girls.
– At the end of high school, Japanese students have to take an exam that determines their future. A student can choose one college they would like to go to, and that college has a particular score requirement.
– Having gone through ‘examination hell,’ Japanese students usually take a little break. In this country, college is often considered the best years of a person’s life. Sometimes, Japanese people call this period a ‘vacation’ before work.
