The end of the year is almost here! The weather is getting warmer, and we are all gearing up for summer. The end of the school year brings lots of fun activities - but it is also a crucial time to get in essential learning and skills that will prepare your student for the next year of their educational journey. To maximize your students success during this part of the year, please take a look at the tips below and don't hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do to help during these last few weeks.
"Tips to get your kids through the end of the school year" from Today's Parent:
1. Stick to routine! "As tempting as it is to slip into summer-relaxed mode, don’t abandon the routines and structures you’ve relied on all year."
2. Take it outside "Research shows that spending more time outdoors improves children’s concentration in school, lessens aggression and improves their ability to cooperate."
3. Plan ahead "Get a head start on preparing your child to make the transition from one grade to another, and from in-school learning to summer learning. If she’s struggling at school, schedule a meeting with the teacher and get some suggestions on enriching summer activities to help her improve her skills"
4. Acknowledge progress "Encourage your child to reflect back on her school year and think about what she’s learned, what was challenging, how she dealt with it and what she’s proud of."
