|Study course notes|
We are so glad we signed up for this! We got a couple of telephone numbers to phone from the Grade 3 teachers last year, and the lady who phoned me back is from a Tina Cowley Reading Centre. The course was from a Friday afternoon, followed up by the Saturday afternoon. It was more than a good six hours of learning how to learn.

She showed them different scenarios of people who made a choice to do their best, although they have many challenges. If there is one thing, except kindness, that I want for my children, is that they can choose their best life.
Check out the story of the man without limbs, Nick Vujicic. He is very inspiring!
The study course taught us different learning methods, such as association methods, and mind mapping. Although I have heard and used some of these techniques, it was really helpful to practise it with Miss. We feel much more relaxed about learning for the upcoming tests. We have some solid ways of getting through the study material each week.
We also figured out that Miss is a left brain thinker, and it helps a lot to know with how we study and manage her study space. Miss also loved the mind mapping, and as predicted she LOVES using her highlighters while learning. ;-)
This was a really good investment of our time and money. It is an investment in lifelong learning, and I picked up some good learning techniques for myself as well.
I would recommend this to all Grade 4 learners and their parents!
