Here are some suggestions for how you can help your child become a better learner and show that you care.
  • Encourage you child and express your pride in his or her efforts and accomplishments.
  • Make sure your child gets eight or nine hours of sleep each night.
  • Keep your child healthy by providing:
    1. regular medical checkups and booster shots
    2. a balanced diet
    3. regular exercise
    4. clean hair and fresh clothes
  • Please notify me of any medical problems.
  • Make sure your child has a good attendance record. Missing school means children fall behind in their work. They become anxious and frustrated when they can't keep up.
  • Establish a time and place for studying. Give your child a quiet corner to read and do homework.
  • Discuss homework assignments and discreetly monitor the child's progress. Offer praise or help when appropriate.
  • Your child will regularly bring home completed papers and assignments for you to review. Ask to see these graded papers.
  • Read to your child, and encourage him or her to read to you. Let your child see you reading. Remember: the best way to communicate the importance and value of reading is to read. Be a reading role model.
  • Be an effective reading tutor by asking your child to find specific details in a passage, paraphrase a paragraph, or describe a character.
  • Please stay in touch with me. I am happy to discuss any problems your child is having. Let's talk, and together we can try to find solutions.
