Student Improvement Time
Didn’t like what you heard at conferences? Do you ask every evening, “Do you have any homework?” And get the same answer, “No”.
Try setting up a student improvement time for your child(ren) each evening.
Set a regular student improvement time each school night.
45 - 60 minutes.
Same time as much as possible - build a habit.
Kitchen table or other area where they can be supervised.
Phone off. Tv off.
Activities for student improvement time:
Complete homework due the next day.
Study for tests.
Re do assignments for a higher grade.
Start projects due in a couple weeks.
Organize binder and backpack.
At the end of the day ask your student, “What will you do with your student improvement time tonight?” Don’t ask, “Do you have any homework?”
Have questions about student improvement time? Contact your child’s counselor!
