Yes, many. It is important to first understand how to best use educational time outside of class. Consider whether your student has enough time to practice after class. Many students go to school from sunrise to sunset, so they have very little time. If this is the case, then the best thing to do is allow your child to play, relax and spend some time not in a structured learning environment. This is critical for learning and healthy development.
If students have more free time, then it can be used to review or prepare for upcoming classes. Most classes at SEA are 45 minutes or less a week. This is not enough time to properly learn the content. Doing some practice outside of class will be required to get the full benefit of learning at SEA.
How and what to practice outside of class will depend on the subject and level. You should first ask the teacher the best ways to practice after class. Some subjects require different strategies and techniques. The teacher for the class would know best.
In general, there are some things you can do. First, please read the article titled “How to review?” which describes particular tactics you can use immediately. The key is finding the right material to review, and then the method. You do not want your students to be bored while practicing after class. Find ways to make it fun. You should also be consistent, but with the appropriate amount of time. 30 minutes a night reviewing is much more effective than 4 hours on Sunday. Read books with your kids, ask them questions about class, and see what they say. Repeating information back requires remembering previous events. This is a great way to help your child learn while not requiring much effort. Let them be your teacher. They should be able to explain things to you as this would show they understand the subject.
