At MindWare, we make hundreds of toys and games that build and promote good study skills. Improving study habits leads to better grades, which can lead to increased confidence, which can lead to any number of other wonderful things! What better way to improve these skills than with games that both engage and entertain?
But before we get to the fun games, let’s first go over some study tips:
When studying, break large tasks into a series of smaller tasks that you can complete one at a time. If you try to complete a large task all at once, you may feel overwhelmed and may be unable to maintain your concentration.
Also, work to develop an interest in what you are studying. Try to relate what you are studying to you own life to make it as meaningful as possible. This can motivate you to concentrate.
As a parent, take an active role in helping your child study. Practice taking notes, skimming material and summarizing stories with your child. Your kids will pick up on your excitement to learn.
Now to the fun part! These games can help promote good study habits and organizational skills:
