Bad grades can be very disappointing for students, parents and teachers. Added to the issues that caused the bad grades, students feel even worse with the results.
Parents feel let down with bad grades after they have provided their children with everything they need. Teachers feel like failures after their efforts have resulted into bad grades.
As long as children do not possess any learning disabilities, these upsetting results can change with minor adjustments. Here are some tips for students, parents and teachers to improve the performance of children in school.
Students can make lifestyle changes
Many lifestyle habits can cause low performance in school. Students lacking focus may be distracted, fatigued or unhealthy. If students are interested in fixing their bad grades, they can make lifestyle changes.
- Remove distractions and make studying a priority
- Get 8 hours sleep at night
- Eat healthy meals on time 3 times a day
- Consume nuts, yogurt, fruit and water throughout the day
Parents can help with schoolwork
Parents already help their children with school by providing the necessities such as books, clothing and lunch. In order to see better grades, they can also help with schoolwork.
- Ask children to teach their lessons to you
- Keep the home lively with flashcards, charts, puzzles and vocabulary games
- Improve communication skills and boost confidence in children by allowing them to make presentations for the family
Teachers can use interactive instruction for bad grades
Teachers can implement engaging activities into their lesson plans to improve bad grades. Instruction should allow students to discuss, listen, read, write, collaborate, analyse, synthesise, solve problems, and evaluate.
The materials used must cover the four learning styles which are visual, auditory, reading and writing, and kinesthetic. So, while children learn, they have fun doing so.
