Your Child Left Behind - What Teachers Can Do To Help Parents

(For more on daily lesson expectations, go to link shown above)

How Teachers Can Help Parents
Commit to and provide a lesson plan at the beginning of the school year for each full semester detailing subjects to be studied based on an estimated time line.
Math:  Send home math homework every night.  Provide an online or real textbook, preferable with an online video teacher explaining the lesson, so that a parent can learn to help their student.
Reading:  Send home a vocabulary word list that parents can work on with their child or provide a link to a class-accessible Quizlet online.  (Parent volunteers could be enlisted to set this up.)  Provide a full year's lesson plan of what the student will be reading.  Allow for substitutions if a book is considered controversial.  Let the students bring the books home to re-read with their parent at night.
English Language Arts:  Send home grammar homework nightly.  Instruct parent to purchase a specific grammar book to keep at home to use as a reference based on pre-provided lesson plan.  Have student write in journal every night to be checked by teacher once a week.
Science:  Let eager parents help put together and/or provide materials for science experiments.  Vocabulary should be a nightly homework project.
Social Studies:  Parents can have their student watch travel  or other educational videos to earn video game playing time.
Provide a complete overview of the most important concepts to be taught in your class for the year and the estimated order in which they will be taught in a booklet form.  This will be used as a reference and review just before end-of-the-year testing.  Offer up your favorite links and resources so that parents can work with their student independently.
Try to work with your fellow teachers to coordinate lessons so that they all complement each other.

Another Mom Hat: High School Choice Researcher

We've come to that moment of parenthood that came much too quickly for my preference, but nevertheless, it's here. We are now looking into high schools for my first-born. I've always been a private-school, Catholic school kid & parent so now we're transitioning to the public school system. I've decided to go out of my comfort zone because we're fortunate to belong to an awesome school district with great high school pathway options. I've done some outside research & now it's a matter…

Motherhood is a Learning Journey


...This week has been a true test of my sheer will and strength as a mother--sending my 13-year-old, my first-born off on a 5-day retreat miles away, off the grid---no contact! It's been emotional--up & down--happy for him, worried for him, excited for him then missing him. Very much missing him.  And I survived. My Huz has survived (barely) & his younger brother (very bonded to him) also survived.  We missed him SO SO much!! But we love him and want him to experience…
