Five ways that will help your kid outshine in his/her secondary classes (CBSE)
As a parent, every individual wishes that his or her kid excels in studies. May it be class-1 or 10; parents always wish to see their kids top every test and exam. But to fulfill your desired results, don’t put your kids under extreme pressure. Instead, help them out by teaching easy methods and smart ways of learning. Oswaal Books is here to give you some positive insights that may help you in building your kids confidence and help them outshine in their classes.
1-. Encourage them to follow the right techniques of learning: Learning is a never-ending phenomenon. Every person must be keen on learning at all stages of life. But for this, proper lay stones have to be put in early ages. So, teach your kids the right way of learning from the beginning itself. Make them analyze and understand every new concept they learn. Develop logical thinking and reasoning skills in children and let them unleash their creativity. Encourage them to question and also motivate them to find answers for their questions. This will surely help them in understanding things better. When your kid is in Secondary classes, he or she will need a lot of support and attention from your side. So spend some quality time with them and try to find out what are their interests and weaknesses. Once you know them well, you can assist your children in persuading their interest and overcome their weaknesses. Believing in them and backing them up for their choices, is sometimes a good idea!
2. Make studies easy by gifting them help books: Books are the best gift you can give to your kids. This will improve their reading habits and skills. Gift your kids CBSE help books and question banks so that you can encourage them to read and also make their exam preparations easy. These help books and question banks can be your best guide, especially during exam times.
3. Keep a track of their performance: Comparison is good, but comparing your kids with other kids is not a healthy idea. Every fruit has its own colour and flavour. You cannot expect a mango to taste like a pineapple. The same way, you cannot expect your child to match other children’s’ qualities. So as a parent what you must to do is, to keep a track of your child’s performance and motivate him or her to self-evaluate and self-compete. Even psychologists believe that this is the best way to improve a child’s performance, one step at a time.
Parents must always backup kids by providing them positive feedbacks and creating better learning opportunities. Buy them some good CBSE help books, so that they can study well and excel in their exams which ultimately also boosts their self-confidence.
3. Let kids understand the importance of revision: Teachers can only do their job at teaching. It then becomes the responsibility of the students to spend enough time on revision so that it is retained in their memory. Different kids have different IQ level. So, based on their learning and understanding capacity, some kids may memorize things in one or two shots and some may have to try a little harder. However, in every case, students need to revise their syllabus well before exams. After revising every subject, solving sample papers of that particular subject will help them analyze their preparation better.
e. Let them spend some quality time doing activities: For children of young age, the best way of learning will be through activities. It is tough to make them sit in front of books and read for hours. Instead, blending their studies with activities can be a lot more easy and fun. You can teach kids tough spellings by split and learn activities. Teach them to spell games like spell bee, making different words using few given letters, listing names, places or things starting from a given letter, word buildings, etc., to improve their vocabulary. When it comes to subjects like mathematics and science, there are tremendous opportunities to teach concepts by making models and creating pictures. So encourage your kids in thinking differently more practically and exploring different angles of each topic to understand it better.
As always said, "Home is the first school and parents are the first teachers for kids", kids need a lot of support from their parents especially in their primary and secondary classes. Thereby creating a positive study atmosphere at home is all kids need most of the times.
