Hi! I’m Maylin. I am a 4th grader at Wheeler Elementary, and I wanted to share some tips that help me do my NTI work. Keep in mind that although these things work for me, everyone is in a different situation so these may not work best for you:

1.  Stay organized. Do not try to work on multiple assignments at the same time (although you can take a break from one and work on another). There is usually no need to, and it just makes it overwhelming. I think you will also end up with a better end result.
