This year, I will be teaching in kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms. As a consultant teacher, I support students by providing additional modeling, opportunities for guided practice, and reteaching. Areas of concentration include reading, writing and math.
Parents often ask how they can help at home. The National PTA Magazine (January/February, 2005) has some great tips:
*Talk less, listen more.
*Follow through when it comes to discipline.
*Kids need limits to push against.
*Label behavior, not the child.
*Be a parent, not a friend.
*Enjoy your children.
