hey guys! its justine :) okay so school can be stressful, especially when you feel like you are overwhelmed and can't go on with your normal life. here are some ways to help prevent that! ♥
O1// Write down all of the assignments you need to do in a notebook. As you get home try and start them the same day so that you can take your time and end up handing in neat work. Always finish your writing assignments during the week so that you can use the weekends to work on models and other projects. Dont be afraid to ask for help.
O2// Don't talk in class. If you do this you could miss out on key information. (At least don't when you're not supposed too!)
O3// Get enough sleep: try to get at least seven hours of sleep. Teenagers especially need LOTS of sleep to be alert in the morning. Getting a good nights sleep will help you focus in school.
O4// Try to complete your work while you have time in school. THIS IS IMPORTANT! this leaves time to do things after school!
O5// Understand it. You really want to understand what your homework is so that you know what to do when you get home. If you don't, ask someone. There is no harm in asking a teacher or someone else for help. Do not simply ask for answers, however: answers on homework will not help you understand what will be on the test. ask mom or dad if needed. Don't hesitate! People will help you if you need it.(:
O6// Know your grades. When the teacher offers to tell everyone their grade, find out your grade. Some schools allow their students to access their grades online. Take advantage if your school offers it. Knowing your grade really helps because if you need the extra help, this will show it!
O7// If you get a bad grade on a test or assignment, don't freak out. Ask your teacher about the questions you got wrong, if you don't understand them. Ask the teacher if you can retake the test, or ask for extra credit to make up the lost points.
O8// One thing I personally find helpful is a planner. This lets me know when I need to do assignments, when they NEED to be done by, and when I have time to hang out with friends or an extra activity.
O9// Make goals! If you know what you want to do, write it down and find ways to achieve it!
1O// If friends are becoming a distraction, take some time away from them and focus on your grades. if they are really your friends, they will understand!
hope i helped!(:
xoxo justine ♥ (:
