Every student should have a place in his or her home that is set apart for studying and homework! Cultivating great study habits in your students in the beginning of the year will set them up for academic success for the remainder of the year.
Use this handout with your students to talk about good study habits. There is a handout option and a fill-in-the-blank option. Offer extra credit for photographs of the child in his or her spot sent to your email!
This is also a great way to start positive communication with parents, since the reply email from you can be a thank-you for helping to encourage their children's good study habits!
You may even consider posting the photos of the studying students somewhere in the classroom to motivate others to get their own study spots at home!
