Successful Learning

Independent writing ✍️

This young man (who is only 5) made me smile today with this story. I love how accurate he is and how he corrects himself without prompting. Super learning!

Successful learners are cooperative

Working together is an important part of learning you need to: listen to others; say when you don’t understand; be kind when you disagree; explain things to help others and be tolerant.

Don’t Give Up!

To be a successful learner you need to persevere even when you feel like the task is too difficult, this is when the real growth happens. You will have a true feeling of success when you conquer a difficult task. You need to: work hard; practise lots; keep going; try new strategies; ask for help; start again and take brain breaks.


Learning to learn takes discipline. This video is about how to manage concentration and give your self the best opportunity to learn. Learning takes effort.
