Study Tip for the Week

One helpful way to teach your kids not to procrastinate is to ingrain in them the need to study at least Two Days Out.  Two Days Out means studying for Friday’s test on Wednesday and Thursday instead of simply the night before.  Studying for predictable subjects like spelling and Latin should be spread over the course of the entire week, but for other quizzes and small tests, especially in the secondary, Two Days Out helps form a pattern of planned investment rather than last minute gambling.
