Build your teen's project-management skills The ability to manage long-term assignments is a critical study skill. When your teen has a term paper or other big project to do, teach him to break the assignment down into smaller chunks. For example, he'll need to pick a topic, do research, decide what to cover, make an outline, write a rough draft, edit and write a final draft. Help your teen define his steps, figure out how each will get done, and assign a deadline for each. Desarrolle las habilidades de su joven para abordar proyectos

Can you collect all the letters on an alphabet hike? Turn an ordinary walk into an alphabet hike and have some learning fun! Have your child write the alphabet on a piece of paper. Then grab a grocery bag and set out together to find one item that starts with each letter. Pull up a Dandelion, pick up a Penny, dig for a Worm. When you get home, ask your child to arrange the items in alphabetical order. ¿Pueden juntar objetos para todas las letras del alfabeto en una caminata?

Respect sets the stage for learning Healthy respect for people is an important basis for a productive learning environment. Teach your child that common courtesies (like saying "thank you" and "excuse me") and honesty are important ways of showing respect. Listening to others' views and accepting their differences is another. Model respectful behavior, and offer praise when you see your child being courteous and respectful. El respeto prepara el camino para el aprendizaje

Overcoming setbacks is an important way to learn If your teen fails a test or receives a bad report card, she can still benefit from it. Teach her that failure is really an opportunity to solve a problem. Help her swap words like "failure" for words like "setback" that make it clear the situation is temporary. Let her know that asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. Then help your teen find out what resources are available at school. Superar los reveses es una manera importante de aprender

Encourage your teen to talk before writing The next time your teen agonizes over a writing assignment, suggest that she talk it through. She can talk to herself, to you, to someone else or even to an audio recorder. Once she's explained her points out loud, it will be a lot easier to write a rough draft. When it's time to refine the draft, suggest that your teen talk some more. Sugiérale a su joven que hable antes de escribir

Nothing beats the power of reading aloud What's one simple thing you can do to help your child do better in school? Read aloud every day. To make the most of read-aloud time, make it a priority. Plan for it, set aside time for it, and then just do it. Read books you and your child both enjoy. It's also fine to read some books that are a little too hard for your child to read alone. These books are great to introduce new vocabulary. Nada supera el poder de la lectura en voz alta -

Create a structure your teen can rely on The start of this school year will be a transition time for all students. To support your teen as she navigates changes, help her establish routines and habits she can rely on. Work with her to schedule the time she needs to fulfill responsibilities. Have her choose a regular study time when she is most alert. Encourage her to keep track of her grades and to ask her teachers for help right away if she is struggling or falling behind. And establish screen-free times for conversation and creative thinking. Cree una estructura en la que su joven pueda apoyarse

Attendance is important from day one Children who don't attend school regularly fall behind and score lower on tests. They can have a hard time making and keeping friends. And frequent absences in elementary school can set a pattern that makes a child more likely to drop out of school later. Don't let your child skip school for reasons other than illness or emergency. If she regularly resists attending, talk to the teacher. La asistencia es importante desde el primer día

Make an argument for attendance "Why do I have to go to school anyway?" If your teen asks this question, offer these facts: 1. Teens can't learn as well if they aren't in class. 2. Teens are more likely to get into trouble if they aren't in school. One study found that 78 percent of prison inmates started out as truants. 3. Truant teens can have trouble getting a job. Some employers check attendance records before hiring a teen. Promueva la asistencia

Add an element of thinking to family activities The most successful students are thinking students. To stretch your family's mental muscles, plan for interesting conversation by asking everyone to come to meals prepared with news, ideas, jokes and questions to share. Or hold meetings to brainstorm solutions to a family problem. Give each person a turn to talk, and listen respectfully. Agregue un poco de pensamiento a las actividades familiares

Experiment with science at home The kitchen is a great place for science experiments. Here are two activities to try with your child: 1. Mix oil and water and watch as they separate. 2. Gently drop an egg into a jar of water. It sinks. Now slowly add salt to the water. The egg floats! After observing the experiments, ask why your child thinks you got the results you did. Talk about ways to find answers, such as going to the library or looking online. Hagan experimentos científicos en casa

Listen to your teen, even if you think you understand Some parents try to be so understanding that they alienate their teens, say experts. When your teen opens up to you, don't be too quick to say you understand. Your teen may feel insulted if you treat her experiences as obvious or simplistic. Instead, take time to listen to her. Ask follow-up questions. Don't assume you already know everything she has to say. Escuche a su joven, aunque usted crea que lo comprende

Point out the useful ways you read Children learn by watching their parents. And when you talk about what you are doing, you make it easier for your child to learn. If you are cooking, for example, you might say, "I'm looking for a cake recipe. I don't have time to read all the recipes in this cookbook, so I'm going to turn to the index in the back. Here under the letter C is a recipe for chocolate cake." Now your child understands more about how an index works. Muéstrele a su hijo los usos útiles de la lectura

Help your teen relax and enjoy reading Older students are often uncomfortable if they don't read well. If this is true of your teen, don't force him to read aloud or insist he read grade-level material. Instead, let him choose material he likes. Keep a variety of interesting reading material around, and set an example by reading yourself. Look for audio versions of books he is reading so he can listen as he reads. If problems persist, ask the school to evaluate your teen for a reading disorder. Ayude a su joven a relajarse y disfrutar la lectura

Are your priorities on your schedule? It sounds odd, but it's true: It takes time to find time. As life resumes a more normal state, spend an hour reviewing your family's schedule. Does it reflect your priorities? If family comes first, for example, are you spending more time with family than anywhere else? Can you cut back on activities that interfere with your goals? This can be a challenge, but remember that kids would rather have time with their parents than material things. ¿Refleja su agenda cuáles son sus prioridades?
