I apologize for the long absence in blog posts, but due to some recent changes around here at S.M.A.R.T. Zone Tutoring, we should have a new blog post/helpful article up every Tuesday, so please check back each week for tips, resources and news regarding testing, school, summer school,ways to keep challenging your student/child's brain and all kinds of other things!
This week I found some great articles. The first one is actually several, a web site that has many articles revolving around how teachers can help prepare their students for standardized tests - which are seen around this time of year! So please check out this website at Scholastic, where you will find articles like, "Test taking strategies for Three Subject Areas" and "Top 5 Ways to Prepare Students for Standardized Tests". Hope you find these helpful!
Here's an article for parents of children going through testing at school. It goes through several things you as a parent can do to help prepare you child for the days of testing they will be having.
Finally, here's another article to help parents prepare for the summer! We need to keep challenging their brains throughout the summer since they aren't in school for a few months. It doesn't necessarily have to be worksheets and math equations though as you will find in this article!
I hope you found some of these tips helpful! Check back next week for more tips and resources for parents and teachers!
