8 tricks so that children do not study by heart

The important thing is not to memorize but to understand, understand what we study and teach children to do it.

Studying by heart is boring and not useful. At the end of the exam they will hardly remember what they have learned. As important to this is the environment as the layout. Here are some tips that will help your child learn by remembering what he studies :


Sleep well and eat healthy

The first tip to learn effectively is to rest the necessary hours according to age. A child cannot be receptive and alert to soak up new concepts if he does not sleep properly. So going to bed at the same time every day and early is the main thing.

On the other hand, a varied diet rich in fruit, vegetables, cereals, meat and fish is basic for both physical and mental development. Try to have a meal schedule and avoid sugars and fats in excess.

Learning for fun

If we can get our children to see learning as a fantastic discovery rather than as an obligation we have a lot to gain. The system is sometimes not ideal (saturation of children, routine, unmotivated teachers) and it bores them as they grow older. We can do our bit from home by spreading the enthusiasm for learning from a young age.

Use notebooks

Put on paper what is being learned, whether by writing, making lists, drawing characters, relating concepts, using simple schemes to remember and assimilate effectively.

Follow a habit

If you review what you have seen at school every day, you can retain information more easily, avoiding last minute “binges”. The concepts are taking hold day by day and are understood much better. And if something has not been well understood, it is time to reinforce it before more advanced data is seen and doubts accumulate.

Have an exclusive space

If it is possible to dedicate a comfortable, ventilated and quiet space to the study, where there is no other activity or is related to something else, so that he concentrates exclusively on studying.

Explain what has been learned

Ask your child to tell you what he has studied, to explain it in his own words. First it will cost you but you will assimilate and organize your thinking. Making a story from the lesson will help you remember it without difficulty.


It is convenient for the child to start studying relaxed and at 40 min take a break to clear up. Walk, breathe, dance, laugh, play something for 10 minutes and start the task over with more courage and enthusiasm.

Use association techniques

Teach him to relate the data that cost him the most through play. For example, act out stories with their dolls or practice math with badges. Any way of linking play with study is for the child to enjoy and memorize effortlessly.

Thank you for your teachings, I always put them into practice.
