Tips on how to talk about school:

  • Let's see what you brought home today. Check out your student's completed work and respond to notes from the teacher.
  • Show me what you have for homework. Have your child explain the assignment to you to check for understanding before they begin homework so that you do not have to do it twice!
  • Describe something you enjoyed at school today, a book, an activity, playing with a friend. You will learn what your child enjoys about school!
  • Tell me what you learned that you would like to know more about. This uses your child's interests for a jumping off point for fun activities to learn and share together.

After school quick questions for the quiet child:

  1. What was the coolest thing that happened to day, and why was it cool?
  2. Pretend you are teacher, What happened at school today?
  3. What made you laugh at school today?
  4. What was the most creative thing you did today?
  5. How were you helpful today?
  6. How were you kind today?
  7. Was anyone kind or helpful to you?
