Algebra help in Wichita, KS.

07/04/2019


There are many students who returned home at the end of the school year with a less-than-stellar report card, often with remarks from teachers about challenges and notes to improve. If this sounds like your student, The Tutoring Center, Wichita KS has a post with a great tip to help over the summer break.

Taking the Teacher’s Advice

Your child’s teacher is in a great position to identify if your child is experiencing any learning challenges or struggles and help them through. In addition to this yearly support, teacher’s observations often make their way into a report card, providing the perfect platform to improve your child’s knowledge over the summer break. Let’s consider an example where your student struggled with reading:
  • Look through your child’s notes to identify common words and sounds your child struggles with, and attach a note with each of these words to their summer snacks. Each time that they want to enjoy a snack, they need to read a word and use it in a sentence.
  • Take your child to the library with free reign over which book they choose. Then, make your way to the park for a reading-picnic.
  • As you are preparing dinner, as your children to read you the day’s mail, including any sale and promotional material you received.
Small instances of learning, such as these, can work wonders for a struggling student, and while it may seem counterintuitive to give your child a fictional story or your mail to read, both of these activities broaden your child’s exposure to word-sound combinations and a range of grammar uses and writing styles. Of course, if your child’s struggle area is another subject, adapt these tips or keep with the theme and think of your own ways to include small learning instances into your child's regular day.
