It’s time to get ready for school. We suggest you make an appointment to visit the classroom with your child before his/her first day of school two or three times for approximately an hour. Introduce the teachers, some of the children, the games and toys. Let him participate in some of the class activities. This will help both of you.
Do you remember your first day at nursery school or kindergarten? You probably were nervous and excited and a bit lonely and lost when your mom or dad left. Even when returning to a familiar setting after summer vacation, children usually feel a bit intimidated.
They may have a new teacher, there are new kids in the group, and maybe that special friend is gone. It’s a big deal!
We all know that if a bridge is not structurally sound, it will eventually collapse. Likewise, if relationships are not built on a sturdy foundation, they too will fail.
Sometimes parents and teachers can be intimidated by each other. But by willingly beginning the home/school relationship with an open, sharing approach, we can build trust. Then, when issues arise-even sticky ones-we can talk about them without hesitation.
Children develop best in an environment of order and consistency. They are happier when they know what to expect. To a young child, a predictable world is a safe world.
By setting up regular, reliable times and procedures for daily events, parents and teachers provide a dependable environment. Routines also help avoid the power struggles that so often occur between adults and children.
Parents are children’s first and most influential teachers. Reading together is one of the earliest shared experiences of parents and children. When you read a story to a child, you are her reading teacher.
Children learn to read by being read to. Research shows that early and good readers come from homes where reading is valued and experienced regularly. The desire to read starts with the early enjoyment of being held in a lap and cuddled as a story is read.
