How a Simple Learning Tool Can Have a Great Impact on Your Child's Grades

They are one of the most common study tools suggested when you are researching ways to help your student study at home. However, given their simplicity, they are often discarded as not being worthwhile. However, with extensive experience helping parents continue their child’s learning at home, The Tutoring Center, Garland TX knows their value and has some easy to follow ways to use flashcards when helping your student with their homework and review sessions.

How to Make Effective Flashcards

If you were to ask your student to make their own flashcards, they would likely choose topics and lessons which they are well versed in and can answer easily. However, these aren’t the lessons they should be reinforcing. Instead, sit down and look through their notebooks for lessons or aspects they frequently struggle with. The best way for a parent to identify these areas is by looking for notes which have been scribbled out and then written again. Additionally, notes where your student has used significant highlighters to catch their attention is also a good key.

Flashcard Favor

Your children are likely to ask you for some favors each day, large and small. While many of them are reasonable and you will immediately say yes, these instances provide great learning opportunities. It goes a little something like this:
  • Student: Hey, Mom! I need a ride to the mall to see my friends. Can you take me?
  • Mom: Sure! Just as soon as you can answer the equation on this flashcard.
  • Student: Ugh!? Can’t you just take me?
  • Mom: *waits*
  • Student: Okay! The answer is…
And off to the mall you both go, only with your child know having a refreshed knowledge of an important subject they have been struggling with.
