This week, I was able to meet with students in reading and math interventions and talk to them about goal setting and how they might improve themselves. We also talked about making the best of it! The students and I talked about how they can help their brains grow and change by using good strategies, such as reading and asking themselves questions as they read. They also help their brains grow when they get help from others and advocate for themselves with their parents and teachers. A big part of making the best of it and helping your brain grow is working hard!
Spend some time this week by telling your child about a time you needed help from someone else to learn something new. Ask your child to tell you about something he or she is working hard to learn and how you can help.
