It will be probably take 20 minutes of complaining or procrastination, before a question is completed, but it is worth it! The daily complaints or avoidance tactics may not stop, but the rewards, will pay off in Term 3.
Rewards include: quicker recall of easier concepts, practicing known concepts and increasing confidence and expertise in key learning areas and improved exam results. Keep up the good work!

Practise writing answers to questions, in each topic area, over the school holidays.
Assess level of competency, to locate any gaps in learning.
Locate extra learning material, to support you child, in these weaker areas of learning.
Start a daily home schedule of learning, through short bursts of 20 minutes of answering questions on one topic, per session.
Track your child's improvement, through a goal-based marking chart. This will motivate your child to succeed in each topic area.
