Learner's Corner

As parents, we always want to know how our children’s day went at school. Have you ever asked your child, “How was your day?” and the answer you received was, “Fine.”? Here are some creative questions to ask your child to get them to open up about their day at school!

1. Tell me about a moment when you felt excited about what you learning today.

2. Was there a moment in class today when you felt confused?

3. What question do you have that came from your learning today?

4. Where there any moments when you felt proud of yourself today?

5. Tell me about a conversation you had with a classmate or friend.

6. What are you looking forward to tomorrow?

7. What did you learn about yourself today?

8. What did you appreciate about today?

9. What is something you learned today that challenged you?

10. Was there something you learned today that you want to know more about?

Check out the Partnership Place Parent Center

    How Does the Partnership Place Parent Center Work?

    • A teacher will fill a “prescription” out for your child with their need addressed (literacy/math and skill area)
    • Find an activity or game you and your child would enjoy playing
    • Take it to the Library to check out the item with Mrs. Stevens!
    • You do NOT have to have a prescription to check out an item! Always feel free to take a look around, check out what you and your family would enjoy, and return for someone else to enjoy!
