As parents, we all want our children to excel academically and develop the necessary skills for future success. One crucial aspect of academic achievement is having strong study habits. But let's face it, studying can be a daunting task for kids and even adults.


At More Curricular, we understand the importance of developing effective study habits at an early age. That's why we've put together 5 fun and creative ways to help your child build strong study habits:

  1. Make it a game - Turn studying into a game by creating a reward system for completing tasks or reaching study goals. This will make studying more enjoyable and motivate your child to stay on track. For example, if your child completes their homework for the week, they get to choose what's for dinner on Friday night.

  2. Use technology - With the growing use of technology in education, incorporating it into study habits can be beneficial. For younger children, there are educational games and learning videos that can be used as a study tool. For older children, there are apps specifically designed for note-taking and organisation, making studying more efficient. However, it's important to set boundaries and ensure that technology is not being used as a distraction from studying.

  3. Create a designated study space - Having a specific area dedicated to studying can help your child mentally prepare for the task at hand. Make sure this space is quiet, organised and free of distractions like toys or electronics.

  4. Make use of visuals - Dual coding theory suggests that combining visual and verbal information can enhance learning and memory retention. By using both visual and auditory pathways to process information, students are more likely to understand, remember, and apply what they have learned. This theory supports the use of visuals in studying, such as creating mind maps or diagrams, as it allows for dual processing of the material. It also highlights the importance of incorporating technology into studying as it provides a multi-sensory experience for students.

  5. Set a routine - Consistency is key when it comes to building strong study habits. Help your child establish a study routine that works for them, whether it's studying for a specific amount of time each day or breaking up their studying into manageable chunks





By implementing these fun and creative methods, your child will not only develop effective study habits but also enjoy the learning process. At More Curricular, we believe that education should be engaging and enjoyable for children. So why not make studying a little more fun? Try out these tips and watch your child's academic success soar!
