Raising Successful Students

Three tips to have your kids Achieve Success At School:

1.) Turn off the TV! At our house, we have an understanding that we don't really have time during the week to watch T.V. (of course, we can be a little flexible if there's a special, long-awaited educational show on PBS!)

2.) Be Prepared. Have backpack, pens, pencils, paper, folders, pocket dictionary, planner and anything else that would be useful. (The teacher would be an excellent person to ask.) At night, before getting ready for bed, all backpacks are packed-up with all books, papers, signed items, planner, completed homework and placed close to the door ready to be grabbed up in the morning on the way out.

3.) Follow the Schedule. There's a daily and weekly schedule in every classroom. In most classrooms, weekly spelling and vocabulary words are given out on Mondays and the Spelling Tests are on Fridays. By simply being aware of the weekly "flow" of the classroom, you'll come to find that there are few surprises-assemblies, field trips and guest speakers.
