Helping Students Succeed

Supporting your child's learning at home can be fun and rewarding. By integrating learning with daily activities you will be able to enjoy more time with your child, teach them new skills and teach them the relevance of what they are learning at school.

Here are some examples of how this can be done:

  • While cooking, have your child help you.  Some of the skills that can be taught include:  reading, measurement and fractions.
  • Discuss the daily news with them.
  • While shopping, let them push their own buggy (many stores have small ones for this purpose).  Let them choose some of the items you need and tell you what they cost.  For older children, you can have them estimate what the total will be before you get to the check-out.
