Ms. Ryan is excited as always to be here at Algonkian, and enjoys being a part of our wonderful Algonkian Family!
The Character Ed Program we will continue using this year is Character Counts. Monthly Character topics, and great home connection activities will be included in the Algonkian Newsletters that go home every month, as well as on the Character Ed section of the Guidance Webpage.
Consistency, Consistency, Consistency!
Start homework time with an after-school chat!
Setting aside time to go through your child’s papers and have a set place to keep completed work!
Set aside a consistent homework spot for your child, keep school supplies handy to reduce the need to look for them and get distracted.
Have your child talk through math problems and teach you! Not only will your child feel proud, but teaching is one of the best ways to help children retain new learning!
Don’t forget that sometimes it takes children a while to figure out what is bothering them, and to adapt to changes!!!
