If your child is just finishing elementary school, you’ve probably heard it all year: the transition to middle school is a big one. Huntington Has some suggestions on how to make that transition easier for them.
It’s summer break and children around the country are celebrating. While your child certainly deserves a break from the daily grind of homework and studying, it’s important to keep that brain active to avoid regression, the loss of academic skills that is so common over long breaks from school.
Summer break is a perfect time for children to establish or renew a reading habit, which is why the Huntington Learning Center is launching its annual summer reading program, Reading Adventure.
The Huntington Learning Center will celebrate National Teacher Day on May 7, 2019, alongside educators, students, parents and communities around the country.
All parents want to give their children the tools to be successful in school, but did you know that making reading a priority is arguably the most essential academic skill?
At some point or another, every student brings home a poor grade on an assignment or a test, which can be a real blow to the self-esteem. It is understandably difficult to see your student struggling and feeling badly about school, but here are several things you can do to help your child overcome a bad grade or dip in school performance.
As your child matures into an independent student, he or she will continue to refine those all-important study skills. Throughout school, students employ a variety of tools when studying, however, what works for one student may not for another.
In today’s complex world, it is not just important, but imperative that children learn to think critically—and not just learn to memorize facts and figures. Although there is a lot of information at every grade that children need to learn—the mechanics of reading and writing, mathematics, science and much more—it is essential for young learners to gain plenty of practice reasoning, questioning assumptions, considering the logic of various ideas and solving problems independently.
The internet opens up a world of educational opportunities, but it’s important for parents to err on the side of caution in today’s uber-connected world.
During the month of April, the Huntington Learning Center is celebrating Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month.
