It is hard to believe that spring is right around the corner. March is an exhilarating and busy month for Popplewell Elementary School. Three critical dates are Daylight Savings Time on March 8, 2020, the first day of spring, March 19, 2020 and spring break. These three dates mean increased time to bond with the kids.
Parent involvement doesn’t only mean at school; in fact, research shows that the support at home is the essential support a child can receive.
Questioning your child about their day is a connecting time. It’s crucial to become specific with the questions asked, or you will get the standard classic response, “Nothing” “I don’t know.” Here are some questions/suggestions that will result in a more engaging conversation and opportunities for activities that you can do together. These activities can also be completed while on vacation, at daycare, or anytime.
Tell me what you learned today that was exciting.
Describe a book you enjoyed today.
What’s the coolest thing that happened? What wasn’t cool?
When completed work comes home, sit with your child, and go through it.
Keep a journal with pictures. Write a book sequencing vacation, spring break, or any other fun activity.
In closing, Popplewell is preparing to kick off our annual Math Olympics all-school fundraiser. All students, preschool through fifth grade, will participate. Please stop by and see the top prizes in our display case. Keep a close watch as students will bring more information home concerning the Math Olympics.
