How are you doing? How are things with school? Do you still have all of your hair? (just kidding!) Here are some things to consider this month for your school:
- Progress- Is progress being made? If so, write down the area you see this occurring in your child with regard to school. Math, penmanship, independence, etc. Share with your child where you see them making progress. Praise adn recognition go a long way!
- Reading– Reading is essential to all learners, all ages. Reading aloud for 10 minutes each day is extremely beneficial. Even high school students should read aloud, especially when reading difficult subject content. Be an example and read aloud to your children. We would read either after lunch or before bedtime, sometimes Dad even read to the kids.
- Work Samples– Choose a paper from each subject to place in your portfolio review. If you haven’t done so yet, create a folder (either physical or electronic) and put it there. Label the date too so you can easily reference when this was done.
- Master Schedule-Write a schedule of what needs to be done for the day (Example: School 8:00-12:00, Lunch 12:00-12:30, etc., 2:00- Appointments, Visits with Others, Chores, Errands, Sports, etc., 5:00- 6:30 Dinner Prep, Meal. Clean-up; 6:30- Family Time, Free Time, 9:00 Good Night!) The above picture is the calendar I got for $1.00 at the Dollar Tree. 🙂
I hope you have found this to be helpful. Have a great week!
