Procrastination = the Thief of Time

Everyone knows that procrastination steals your time away because you're distracted. There are a lot of procrastinators out there, and everyone feels bad when they get a bad grade in a certain subject, but who's to blame? The only person that you can blame is yourself. And why is that? Procrastination, and not studying. So, here are three study strategies that I find most useful when I'm studying for a quiz or test.

One of the study strategies that I find most useful is Quizlet. Not only does it help you review vocabulary, it's also fun to use! The games Match and Gravity test your skills and your knowledge about the words. If you'd rather do some old fashioned studying, you can use the flashcards they provide, or test yourself using a test which they'll grade for you. You can also practice spelling the words, too!

The second strategy that I enjoy using the most is filling out my study guide. Teachers hand out study guides to help you study! The thing about study guides is that they cover all topics that you've learned in the unit, so you'll practice everything again before taking your test. After answering all the answers in your study guide, you can then check with the answer key.

Finally, I love studying with a partner. Sometimes, I'll play Concentration or Go Fish with a friend using my vocabulary to get more familiar with the terms in a fun way - and this way, not only are you practicing vocab, your friend is, too!

When you study in the right way, it can be fun as well as good for your learning - and that's the way I like to study.
