Safely Back Together Again - Let's Finish Strong!
This has been a year filled with challenges; however, it is critical to help our students maintain a positive connection with school, as many students begin to think about the end of the school year. There are plenty of ways you can help make this final stretch of the academic year a success.
After months of hard work and lots of time spent in the classroom, many students are left with less-than-ideal supplies. Pencils no longer have erasers and crayons have been worn down to nubs. It's hard to do your best work when you don't have the right tools.
Help your children put forth their best effort up through the last day, by taking stock of their school supplies. A freshly sharpened pencil, a glue stick or two, and a new box of crayons can make a world of difference.
Lead by Example
Kids learn by example, and are quick to adopt our attitude. If your child hears you talking about how you wish it was summer, or how you can't wait for school to be over, he/she is likely to adopt that mindset. Avoid speaking negatively about school, homework, etc. in front of your child. It will be harder for your child to put forth his best effort if he thinks you don't care, don't like school, etc.
We like to tell our kids that every assignment is an opportunity to do their best. Encourage your kids to try their best, continue to set aside time to complete homework, and prioritize school attendance. Your positive attitude about school (even when it's sunny and almost time for vacation!) can help your children finish strong.
Stick to the Routine
When it's warm and light outside, it can be more difficult to enforce bedtime, but it's super important to help your child continue to get a good night's rest through the end of the school year. Stick to your child's regular bedtime and continue to make time for homework and at-home reading.
Help your child develop responsibility and perseverance by maintaining that good learners do what they need to do until the job is done. Sunny days and a looming summer vacation can't stop motivated and eager learners! Maintaining your school-year schedule will help reinforce these beliefs.
1-2 Reasonable and Reachable Goals
Goals are a great way to keep students motivated and on-task towards the end of a school year. Help your children select one or two small goals to accomplish before the end of the school year. The goals should be challenging but reachable. Some ideas include things like moving up a level in reading, memorizing their multiplication facts, having a certain number of positive behavior days, etc. Work with your kids to determine steps to take to work towards their goals and encourage practice at home.
The more that you stay positive, the more likely your child will be to finish the year with a positive attitude.
