Ten Minutes to Better Study Skills
Writing Graphic Organizers

“Let me talk about Ten Minutes to Better Study Skills and let me admit my own folly. I read the title and thought, “We don’t need this.” See, we are kind-of laid back homeschoolers. Definitely not the “recreate school at home” sort. And “study skills” just smacks of school or at least a school like approach. Boy, was I wrong. Instead, it has a TON of easy to use forms that students can fill out to aid in reading comprehension. They are short, and they are…well…fun. And there are a myriad of forms across the grade levels to challenge the students to look deeper and deeper. They aid in comprehension, and train students to develop better “study skills”, which really equates to better retention of what they read. Thanks so much for the easy to use helps!”

“The graphic organizers in Ten Minutes to Better Study Skills are so great, especially for my dyslexic daughter who has a hard time organizing her thoughts. Getting herself from point A to point B. She has to have a plan of attack and take the steps to get to her final destination. This book made all the difference!”

10 Minutes to Better Study Skills is a wonderful resource that is full of printable forms for you and your student to use. There are book report forms; compare and contrast forms; note taking for textbook users; letter writing forms; planning schedules…and many more. So far we have used the letter writing forms, comparing forms and the book report forms. I like the variety of book report forms that they offer…I have a variety of ages/grades so these have come in handy because they have easy forms for the younger ones and more detailed ones for the older kids. These forms are a great help in training students to develop better study and organizational skills.”

I’ve been teaching students from 1st grade through high school and even adults over the last 35 years. When I designed these graphic organizer forms, I designed them with those grades in mind. So my 1st and 2nd graders use some of the graphic organizer fill-in-the-blank forms, my 3rd – 5th graders use more of them, and my 6th and above students use all of the graphic organizer forms.

Recent research has shown that students can be taught “how to learn”. Strategies used in Ten Minutes to Better Study Skills™ focus on how to learn and how to effectively use what has been learned.
