Final exams? Guidelines for a good scheme

When the time for the final exams arrives, all the children accumulate tasks and topics that they must understand and understand perfectly to be able to take the test and pass with flying colors. Sometimes, they feel overwhelmed with so many tasks and cannot organize themselves exactly to be able to get out of it all. During this stage it is essential that parents show ourselves as a support for them, helping them and looking for those sustenance that can facilitate their task.

Finding the perfect tool is not very complicated. We have thought of two infallible methods that we all have in mind and that, although we know how they are used and for what, we can optimize to the maximum to get the most out of them. It's all about the schematics and summaries. This type of tool allows you to study the content in a very simple way, making it as easy as possible to retain it in memory. For their part, they are a perfect method to correctly optimize study time. Although to do it we must spend a relative time, the child who makes diagrams will know how to focus on those important ideas in the text and give less importance to the secondary ones.

Of course, we cannot forget that in order to do it correctly, the child must understand the text 100%.

We believe that making diagrams and summaries can be a perfect method to help the child to study and that is why, with the help of the expert pedagogues of Rubio, the publisher of didactic notebooks, we present a series of points to take into account to be able to carry them out. perfect.

Guidelines for a good outline

  1. Read the text carefully. In a first approach to the content, it should be sought that children understand what they are reading, without the need to underline or take notes.
  2. Identify what the main topic is. The key is to ask yourself: what is the text about? The answer must be short, that is, it must condense the essence of the text in a single sentence.
  3. Write down the main and supporting ideas. After reading and understanding the information, it is necessary to highlight the key points of each paragraph and classify them according to their importance.
  4. Find the relationship between them. Is it possible to relate some ideas to others? This will allow the content to be synthesized and the story unified.
  5. Write a draft or mind map. It is important to group the data and order it in such a way that all parts can be identified at a single glance.
  6. Read and check that it is understood. Remember to always use short sentences and use your own words.
  7. Rewrite. Once reviewed, it is necessary to take a blank page and, in good handwriting, rewrite the summary or outline. This last step can also help to memorize and fully understand the subject.
