How to Survive School by Angela, Teen Blogger

On the first day of school, guess what?... I had loads of homework! It’s going to be hard to survive school...

 To get ready for every assignment, quiz, test and way more...Student with books photo

  • Be organized! You need to find your homework sheet to do your homework, right?
  • Preview! If you want to be ahead of everybody else.
  • Review! Get another shot at it.
  • Ask! When you want to annoy your teachers... Just kidding, only when you don’t understand.
  • Do your work! Staring at loads of blank sheets is not fun.
  • Don’t procrastinate! Ooops, a bad habit of mine.
  • Try your best! Be the best of you.
  • ...! Whatever else you think will work.

On the first of school, I had loner classes, but that was fixed with other survival strategies. 

  • Friends in a circle photoMake friends! Don’t be a loner... That feeling is not fun.
  • Be positive! On almost everything...
  • Participate! Join clubs, groups, committees, and more.
  • Have fun! It’s not all about schoolwork.
  • Find help! Only if you need help.
  • ...! Whatever else you think will work.

So I hope you are prepared for school. Oh one more thing...READ A BOOK!!!

Have a great school year!
