Parents help with fun learning materials

Learning academic subjects requires an active mind and body. Parents help their children by providing and playing fun learning materials with them. Games such as Text Twist, Bookworm, Hangman and charade challenge the mind, keep it busy and develop focus.

Parents help children remember information with learning materials. Charts, diagrams and posters with formulas, definitions, examples of literary devices and pictures with labels can be posted on walls. Parents help keep the home lively with flashcards, puzzles, Pictionary, Scrabble and other games at all times.

Ask questions and listen attentively

When children get home from school, parents usually ask, “How was your day?” They should always follow with questions about the topics covered in each class. This conversation should not take very long unless the children are very talkative.

The more information is shared the easier it is to find an interesting area for which assistance can be offered. The trick is to identify the weak areas of children’s studies.

In order for parents to get the answers they are seeking, it’s important to ask, “How did you find that lesson?” and “What grade did you receive for that exercise?”

Let children make weekly presentations

Parents can create a “presentation day” for children to explain all the topics done in school for the week. They are able to see if their children understand the lessons taught at school. At the same time, they learn the work so as to assist their children even better.

Parents can take notes during the presentation. They can ask many questions after to ensure that the information presented is indeed understood by the presenter.

Review homework daily

Many parents go through children’s homework to ensure it was done and sometimes to put their signature for teachers. Not everybody actually looks at the work to see if it was done properly though.

Even if parents do not understand the work, they should let their children give details about it.. This reduces the chances for embarrassment at the school when teachers talk about adults who sign homework that was done incorrectly.
