Efficient note taking is a crucial skill in the classroom, that will improve your children’s learning and boost their academic performance. However, this ability takes time and practice to develop. For this reason, at The Tutoring Center in Sammamish, we would like to share a few ideas to help your children take useful notes during class. 

School Supplies

This may seem obvious, but your children will need the right school supplies to take their notes. Make sure to provide them with pens, pencils, sharpeners and notebooks, so they don’t waste any time. Also, this will help to them to instill a sense of organization and responsibility to take good care of their things.  

What to Write?

Writing down everything what the teacher says is almost impossible. However, your children should be able to distinguish certain hints that teachers may give, like writing something on the blackboard, repeating a concept, reviews and summaries. Also, remember that a clear handwriting is very important and suggest your children to use short sentences and keywords. 

Other Factors

Make sure your children are having enough sleep and that they are eating properly and healthy; hunger can be a major distraction during class. Also, visit the doctor and find out whether their vision and hearing are in perfect condition, as this sometimes can get in the way of paying attention, and can make your children lose interest and motivation.

These are just a few ideas that can make a huge difference in your children’s note taking. Dont’ forget to read this previous post containing useful information to overcome procrastination.
