Here is some good advice to parents about AP Test/Classes and SAT tests. 

They require different preparation to do well. This is fairly short worth reading for parents of high school students who are four year college bound.

This explains why discipline is meant for learning not punishment, employing logical consequences that keep the student on the path of learning and doesn’t “kick him off” when he transgresses. 

This will help educators, as well as parents, see a different viewpoint that may help in teaching and caring for children.

This article discusses 6 practices to maintaining a healthy brain. 

Timez Attack is offered on this website, and it’s a really fun video game exclusively for learning multiplication tables. It’s a high-tech and entertaining video game that kids really enjoy, yet it’s as rigorous and effective a drill and practice exercise as one-on-one training with a skilled teacher. A user can download a free version of this program that uses an environment which includes a dungeon and a troll. Or a version with a different environment can be purchased. I suggest you try the free version and see how your child responds! 

I’ve used this site with several of my students who’ve had trouble learning multiplication facts. They went from groaning about using flash cards to begging to go online to play Timez Attack. It works for developing both speed and accuracy, and students don’t resist it. 

This is a GREAT set of easy to play games that cost almost nothing to play. Most are free, played orally, or involving a pencil and paper. 

These are FUN ways to teach and reinforce phonics and spelling knowledge and skills. Kids love games and by playing these games at home, on vacation, or in the car, you will help your child become a much better reader. These games help children to have greater facility with words, phonic, and language, all of which are skills underlying good reading abilities. Give them a try! Your child will love them and be learning important skills which will make him/her a better reader!

This article explains these concepts clearly and simply and give ideas on how to “focusing on color, music, pattern, rhyme, movement or gesture, the global whole (or the whole picture), images, stories, skits and metaphor” can enhance the integration of the right side of the brain to enhance learning.
