STUDY TIPS

MAKE FLASHCARDS (4TH-8TH) FOR ALL IMPORTANT "WORDS TO KNOW" IN SOCIAL STUDIES, SCIENCE, EVEN RELIGION. CREATE THESE FLASHCARDS WHEN YOU BEGIN A NEW CHAPTER AND THEN USE THEM TO STUDY FOR TESTS. You can find or create flashcards at quizlet.com.

(HINT---PARENTS DO NOT MIND FLASHING CARDS TO HELP YOU STUDY!)

 

 TO STUDY FOR MATH TESTS (6TH-8TH GRADERS)----GO TO CLASSZONE.COM AND COMPLETE THE PRACTICE QUIZ FOR EACH CHPT. SECTION. YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT HOW HELPFUL THIS CAN BE!!!

PRACTICE YOUR SPELLING WORDS OUTSIDE! (1ST-6TH)  WRITE THEM ON THE  SIDEWALK WITH CHALK OR WITH A PAINTBRUSH DIPPED IN WATER.  PRACTICE SPELLING WORDS AT spellingcity.com ; IT'S  FUN!

                                                       

TEST TAKING TIPS

READ ALL TEST DIRECTIONS....READ ALL POSSIBLE ANSWERS GIVEN FOR MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS....SKIP ANYTHING YOU ARE UNSURE OF AND COME BACK TO IT LATER (SOMETIMES YOU MIGHT FIND THE ANSWER HIDDEN IN THE TEST ITSELF!)   

 

UPPER GRADE STUDENTS

Remember, you have a great deal of information to memorize for tests.  In order to make study time more efficient, you should break study time into smaller, daily study sessions.  A one time "cramming" session is not as effective as studying over a period of several days. For example, study social studies vocabulary on one night, geographical information another night, concepts another night, and so on. It can also be helpful to rewrite your notes and vocabulary words/definitions. Study alone or with a friend. Play "teacher" and teach the material to an invisible class. Memorization can be fun, and it fills your brain with foundational knowledge that future information can cling to.
