At the beginning of this school year, we posted about asking your child how their day at school was. I'd like to revisit that topic as the end of the year nears, because the days are long but the years are short, and it is never too late to ask your child how school is going.
"When your child comes home from school on that first day, they are going to be so excited to share everything with you. As the days go by and we all get very busy, children often also forget to share their learning with you.
Here are some simple tips to continue to show your child your interest.
1) Say "last week you were working on....(insert fun school topic here!). How is that going now?"
2) "How is ....(name a project) going? I can't wait to see it.
3) When is .....(name an academic event) and would you like to attend as a family?
The article below is full of interesting and funny questions to also ask your children. When you care about what they learn, learning becomes more meaningful!"
