The appearance of unwanted ratings is not always the result of laziness. The reason may be educational errors or certain health disorders. An unexpected decline in academic performance indicates that something has appeared that interferes with learning. These may be family quarrels, family extension, the result of a conflict with peers or a teacher.
Problems can be prevented before entering first grade
School failure can be predicted in advance. Speech delay, difficulty in memorizing short poems, problems with coordination of movements – all this becomes a harbinger of difficulties in a school institution.
Use all possible methods of development or treatment to avoid them and not aggravate them. In time to notice overlooked violations, the joint performance of tasks during preparation for school will help.
Pay attention to periods when progress improves or worsens and what precedes this – sleep duration, nutrition, physical activity. In the future, this data will help to create an action plan that reduces school difficulties.
The child is learning poorly – how to help
It is difficult, but now you have to implement the rescue program, and you do not have much time. Tell the student that you love him despite the lack of good results and he will definitely cope with the difficulties that have arisen.
Threats, accusations and punishments will not help, they only undermine the fragile self-confidence. Develop a plan for improving grades. Write down the rules that you will apply when doing homework:
- do tasks at the same time
- go to bed on time
- before lessons, remove all toys from the desktop, leaving only teaching aids
- do lessons with breaks
- help, but do not do for the child
- read texts aloud
- follow the progress.
Improve your workplace – hang on the wall in front of the table where the lessons are done, the schedule, the basic rules for all subjects, the report card for grading.
The child began to study poorly – talk to the teacher
Try to find out what the child is wrong about and vice versa, shows a good result, how attentive and diligent he is. This information will help you figure out if your problems are due to fatigue, loss of interest, or health. Find out the opinion of all the teachers with whom the child is studying.
Reasons for failure in school
If a student brings bad grades constantly, is closed in himself and aggressive, then he cannot cope with difficulties. Perhaps he has manifestations of dysgraphia, dyslexia or dysorthography and requires the intervention of not only parents, but also a specialist.
The reason is the difficulty of communicating with peers and not very humane methods of the teacher, for example, overloading the school curriculum or boring lessons. In this case, consult with the school psychologist.
It will also be useful to have a dialogue with the teacher about his approach to teaching, but it will be productive only if the majority of parents agree with your opinion and announce the problem at the meeting.
Lack of interest is one of the main factors in school difficulties. Here, the task of parents is to show each school subject from the good side with the help of additional literature and examples from personal life.
Fatigue is another reason. Especially when it comes to extra workloads. Try to temporarily remove one of the circles and look at the result. For some children, home schooling is a good option , which leaves more time for sports and creative pursuits.
However, the independence of the child, his readiness for educational activities without the help of an experienced teacher is important here.
Invite the student to read: Dragoon. “Main Rivers”.
Speaking of independence, I would like to note this factor. Sometimes, it is he who prevents the child from mastering the material. He is constantly waiting for “orders” from an adult – do the task, clean up the desktop, put down the diary, etc.
If there are no reminders, the student remembers the duties at best, before going to bed, and at worst, during the lesson. What to do?
Have conversations about responsibility and get rid of the habit of leading the student. A few deuces and strict remarks from the teacher will teach the child to do everything on time.
