The relationship between our school and our families is very important for the success of our children. And the success of your child can start with a few things that should happen every day.
- Ask questions every day. Around the edges of this section of the newsletter, we put a variety of open-ended questions to get your conversations started with your child. If you start this kind of dialogue now, hopefully great discussions about school and friends will last all the way through college.
- Read every day. Read to your child, with your child, and let your child read to you. Make this a special event each evening by choosing a special place and time with your child. Don't always save this for right before bed, because if you are late for bedtime, the reading may get skipped.
- Practice your math facts every day. This can be anytime, anywhere. You can count cars while you are driving home, or waiting at a stop light. You can ask your child to count the change in your wallet/pocket while you are at the grocery store.You can even add up the commercials you saw while watching your favorite TV show. Don't forget subtraction!
I can't wait to see what great things we accomplish this year!
Learn A Lot.
Thank you and I hope to see you at school some time soon!
