Helping My Child Succeed

Q. How Can I Help My Child Succeed?

A. There are many ways parents/guardians can help. Here are some things you can do with your child to improve his/her skills:

Reading: While reading with your child, ask questions about the book he/she is reading, such as: What happened? How would you feel if you were in that situation? Describe the main character. How are you similar/different?
Mathematics: Have children practise making patterns using various materials found around the house and counting by 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, and 10's.
Science: Watch the local weather station to see what the weather will be for the day. Take your child outside and look at the clouds and ask him/her for predictions.
Writing: Have your child keep a daily journal, where he/she can write about what was learnt at school, what what done that day and what he/she wants to do better tomorrow.
