How To Keep Your Child Motivated in Term 3 with WorksheetCloud
3 minute read
WorksheetCloud wasn’t designed as an “exam time only” tool. We designed it to be an all year round revision tool.
Exam time is the only time that your child needs to study, right?
Imagine that you have entered a marathon, a 42km long race that would require every bit of strength, perseverance and discipline to conquer. Would it make sense for you to start training 1 week before, knowing the massive challenge that lies ahead? Well of course not! You would likely start training weeks in advance in order to be fully prepared both mentally and physically.
Would you not agree that the same applies for exams?
Exam preparation starts at the beginning of the term. With just a small amount of revision every day (I’m talking 30 minutes), you will see just how easy learning becomes for your child, and the massive benefits it will have on their study ethic closer to the exam time.
If you haven’t already, sign up to WorksheetCloud here and be super prepared for the upcoming term!
Here are some tips on how to use WorksheetCloud this term to boost your child’s grades, and decrease their stress.
Reiterate that practice makes perfect
Before you start, it’s important that your child understands why regular revision is so important. Sit them down and explain to them why doing just a little bit of revision every day is going to help them greatly when exam time comes. This will also be a good lesson for them regarding time investment. If they do this properly, they will see for themselves how much easier exam time becomes, and they will be more willing to invest the time again next term.
Draw up a revision schedule
Look through the different sections of work that your child is going to be learning this term. A great way to do this is to login to your WorksheetCloud account, and go to the “Worksheet Plan” tab. Change the “Term” to the term that your child is going to be starting. This filters the work to show only the sections that your child will be learning this term.
Once you have familiarized yourself with the work, put together a revision schedule. At the end of each week, take a look through your child’s notes for each class and see which sections they have covered. Plan for the following week’s revision by allocating 15 mins of revision per subject. You can plan for up to 2 subject revision sessions per day, which amounts to 30 minutes of revision per day.
Work through the worksheet plan
Once their schedule has been drawn up, your child can open WorksheetCloud, find the relevant section, and start one of the worksheets. Once they have completed a worksheet, they should look over their results by clicking the “Review My Test” button and see where they went wrong, and why. This is an important part of the revision process. They need to identify where they are making mistakes and why, so that they don’t make those same mistakes again.
In 15 minutes, your child should be able to finish multiple worksheets on a specific section. We designed WorksheetCloud to be quick, efficient and beneficial.
Monitor their progress
You will be able to monitor your child’s progress across all their subjects from the WorksheetCloud parent dashboard. This will help you to identify which sections they are struggling with, after which you can take action to help them. Just click the “Report Card” option on your child’s profile, and take a look.
Once your child has worked through the Worksheet Plan, it’s time to take on some of the practice exams. They can select the “Exams” section in the top bar, and pick an exam they would like to try. Each exam covers all the sections in that particular subject for that Term.
With regular use, we guarantee that WorksheetCloud will boost your child’s grades and help them achieve that A+ that they have always dreamed of!

Being resilient means that you know how to cope when you are faced with obstacles; that no matter what the circumstances, you will push past your limits to succeed. Resilience is very often defined as simply having emotional strength. It is also a very prevalent issue in society – children are seemingly not as resilient as they used to be.
We can’t all be master mathematicians or famous doctors. Who would create the music we listen to while we relax or exercise? Who would paint the artworks we love to admire? Who would write the books we love to read? Each and every child has their own unique talents and abilities. It is so important to encourage these, instead of pushing some ancient notion on your child.
When I hear the letters ADHD, a part of me becomes very uncomfortable. Uh oh, what now? Run in the opposite direction? Ignore? Scream? Shout? Cry?
