Practice Study Skills This Summer!

For some middle school kids, taking a test is like facing a shark: super scary! One way to ease those fears is to practice test-taking strategies. Summer Solutions Study Skills books provide students with practice in test-taking skills such as notetaking, summarizing, interpreting visual information, outlining, and much more! Practicing these valuable skills during the summer will help your child tackle those tests once school starts again in the fall.

Acquiring test-taking skills is just as important to your child’s academic success as acquiring reading and math skills. Your child may be proficient in math and reading, but if they cannot demonstrate that proficiency on their tests in school, it will adversely affect their long-term academic success.

“Effective study strategies are the gateway to school success, graduation, college entry, and job advancement.”
