Teacher Tips for Parents: Free Resources

Being a grandparent and a retired teacher I am always looking for resources for my daughter-in-law to help her better understand what to expect her 3rd grader to be learning each year and how to help him at home. I came across some great information that I wanted to share with all of you.
You can find it all in one place at Scholastic for Parents by clicking on the picture below.
You will find a great video for helping your students get organized. I especially like the part about making a Backpack Map to make sure they have everything they need to take home and return to school. This would be great to share with your parents. You can view the video by clicking on the picture below.
You will also find Curriculum guides for children from 1st through 5th grade that help explain the skills students will learn in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. They are skills that are aligned to the Common Core Standards if your state is one that has adopted them Click on the picture below to check out the one for 2nd grade:
Click HERE for 1st Grade and click HERE for 3rd Grade. Not only will you find these great resources but  great free printables and lots of parent tools. Hope you will check it out and get some great tips and ideas to help you throughout the school year. For teachers it is a great website to recommend to your parents.

Do you know your students' learning styles? Some children are auditory learners, they learn by listening. Others are visual learners, they learn by seeing.  Kinesthetic learners are hands on learners- they learn by doing. Some are a combination of the these. Knowing your students learning styles can be very helpful toward planning lessons and their success in school. It is also important for parents to know as well. You can learn more about the 4 School Success Tips by clicking on the picture below.
Can't wait to share this information with my daughter-in-law.
I would highly recommend your parents subscribing to their free newsletter.
Thanks for all you do to make a difference for your children.
