Thursday is the first day of Fall Conferences. Here is a resource to help you have a great meeting with your child’s teacher and leave with a renewed sense of what you can do at home to support learning as well as inform the teacher on your child’s strengths so that she can teach in a way that works best for your child.
First, take a look at these fantastic resources from PTA that provide specific summaries of the grade level standards in both English and Spanish. You will find two great sections on these documents that will both help you have a great conversation with your child’s teacher and give you some simple and practical tips at home to increase learning.
How to talk to your teacher:
Furthermore, these guides conclude with some simple yet powerful suggestions for how to support your children at home.
I highly recommend you take the time to review these two-page documents for your child’s grade level in preparation for your parent conference. You’ll sound like an expert and impress that teacher immensely!!!
If you would like to learn more about the Common Core State Standards, please come by tonight at 6:00 PM in our Library Media Center to dig deeper on what is changing in terms of learning goals, assessment, and classroom instruction. Please RSVP here if you plan to attend.
For coming out to the book fair and for your patience while we only had one register. We will have 2 registers tomorrow!
Here are a couple titles that should be available at this week’s Book Fair at Camarena. Ask your child for the flyer that went home on Friday (or download here: book fair) and make a plan for the great reads that you will add to your family collection.
Beginning Thursday, September 12 we will have minimum days (1:15 release) and parent conferences. If you haven’t already scheduled a conference with your teacher, please contact them right away and don’t forget to arrange appropriate transportation for the early release times beginning this Thursday.
