Preparing Your Child for the New School Year

Each of the comments on your child’s report card not only provides insight into the previous school year but also how to improve for the next. The Tutoring Center, Houston TX has prepared a great post on the topic, below.

Identify a Theme

The best place to start is to read through each of the notes in your child’s report card to identify a common theme. For example, if a student struggled with public speaking or reading aloud, then it’s reasonable to expect notes from multiple teachers. Continuing with this example, consider these activities over summer:
  • Copy select paragraphs from magazines and textbooks and attach each to a snack in your kitchen. Before your student enjoys their snack, they need to read the paragraph out loud or to a family member.
  • Encourage your child to explore a range of non-educational reading material, such as comic books, magazines, fictional stories, etc. to expose them to a range of writing styles, grammar uses, and letter-sound combinations. After each chapter, have them read you their favorite page or scene.
  • Reading your mail while you prepare dinner is not only a great way to save time but provides your children with writing styles and word choices which they otherwise wouldn’t learn from. This activity also allows you to identify any learning challenges and monitor their progress.
Of course, whatever your child’s report card noted, adjust these tips or create your own to help your child’s brain stay active over the summer break.
