After a summer of play, the return to homework, studying and reviewing can turn kids off to the subject. 

Scientists who research study habits have noticed that kids who study the same material in several different ways, do better in class and on tests. 

This means learning vocabulary words, then practicing some problems, then a review for twenty minutes each would be better than trying to do one of those for an hour. So vary the way your child is studying, even while they are focused on the same topic.
