There are many things you can do to help your child succeed in school.  We know that we should make sure our children have plenty of sleep and to eat a healthy breakfast to help them do their best.  But did you know there are many other things you can do to aid in the success of your student?  Here are just a few:

  • Allow your child to complete homework and studies in different areas like at their desk, the kitchen table, on the patio, etc.  Studies show that with a variety of work spaces, students more easily retrieve information.
  • Give your child brain breaks.  Giving the brain a break from drills can actually help with remembering information.
  • Review assessments with your children.  This reinforces the learning and opens the floor for a conversation about the learning.
  • Talk to your student about their day.  Ask specific questions using the Friday Progress sheet as a guide for discussion.  Check out the link for ideas on how to get the conversation started. http://www.teachthought.com/pedagogy/25-alternatives-whatd-learn-school-today/
