Use Your Child’s Report Card to Teach 

More than just grades, a student’s report card includes powerful notes from their teachers about past performance and advice on preparing for the new school year.The Tutoring Center, Birmingham has a great post on the topic, below. 

What’s the Theme? 

The best place to start is by carefully reading your child’s notes, looking for any commonalities. For example, if your student struggled to present their work to the class or with general public speaking then it’s reasonable to expect multiple comments on the topic. 

Continuing with this example, here are some great activities: 
  • Copy pages or paragraphs from your child’s notebooks and textbooks from the previous school year and use them as part of a reward system. As an example, if your child needs a ride to the mall to see their friends, ask them to read aloud a page or paragraph to the family. 
  • Reading your mail as you drive around completing your errands is not only a great way for children to expand their vocabulary and improve their public speaking but it also provides parents with an opportunity to track their child’s progress. 
  • Encouraging your child to read non-educational text aloud, such as fictional short stories, is a great way to both build a positive connection with reading and expand their vocabulary. 

Whatever challenge your child is experiencing, adapt these tips or create your own ways to improve their learning with small activities like these.
