Study Skills are important skills to begin developing as early as the third grade. This study skill set is perfect to use after introducing and modeling study skill strategies. Then, you can put the responsibility onto the students by having them reflect upon their study skills habits.
1. Provide the list of Study Skill strategies (there is a lower grade and an upper grade version -- both customizable!)
2. Provide opportunities for students to practice these skills
3. Directly before & after an assessment, have students fill out the Pre-Assessment and Post-Assessment reflections (there is a lower grade and an upper grade version -- both customizable!)
4. After the test has been corrected and handed back, have students fill out the Missed Items reflection to determine why they got certain answers wrong: students reflect on each incorrect item and decide if they got the problem incorrect because of a simple error, because they didn’t understand the question, or because they didn't understand how to solve the problem. This is geared at Math, but the columns can be customized to meet the needs of your test.
I created a version of the study skills list for students to keep in their homework folder or their organization binder. I also created a version of the study skills sheet for students who need more practice using study skills as homework, and I created a version for teachers to use as a quick way to assign study skill options for a homework assignment or for an upcoming test.
This is not grade specific, but it was designed for a 3rd through 5th grade math class.
