"Park" extraneous thoughts

November 20, 2017

 

 

Today's tip:

 

Students need a way to keep track of the random thoughts that pop into their heads at random times. (Some of those thoughts are important like homework that needs to be completed!) These impulsive thoughts can be terribly distracting and derail the student from whatever she was trying to accomplish. Urge your child to quickly record any extraneous thoughts on a post-it note or in an app on her phone. Doing so will allow her to “park” the distracting thought and immediately refocus on the task at hand, while also ensuring she’ll remember later what she needed to get done.

The Engaging Minds Difference

 

Engaging Minds offers a unique approach to traditional tutoring: we teach students how to learn and provide them with academic skills and strategies they need to succeed over the long-term. In addition to providing support in writing, reading comprehension, and problem-solving, we focus on teaching the increasingly important executive function skills (organization, prioritization, initiation of tasks, time management, planning, goal-setting) and guide students to become independent and self-confident learners. With these fundamental skills in place, students are better able to effectively approach, manage and complete nightly homework assignments, and are better poised to achieve their full potential.
