Short NotesPublished by: Home and School ConnectionAttendance is important
Be there! Did you know that regular school attendance in elementary school sets up a good pattern for your child’s entire school career? Show your child that school comes first by trying to keep days off for illnesses and family emergencies. Another suggestion, try to schedule routine doctor and dentist appointments for after school or over school breaks.
Ticket please! Parents if you want to limit your child’s TV time, try this suggestion. Every week, give seven slips of paper. Each is good for an hour of television, but remind your child to plan ahead. For example, if he/she wants to watch a two-hour movie on Saturday, they will need to save an extra ticket during the week.
Better concentration – If you are looking for a fun way to improve your child’s concentration, try this quick game. The first player makes one motion, like clapping or spinning around. The second person copies him and adds another movement. Continue adding new motions until someone forgets the sequence. The last player that gets it right starts a new game.
Those informative after school chats! Greet your child with this question, what’s in your backpack?” and you will discover a lot about what he/she does in class. Also,
