Home-School Connections: ideas to enhance student learning at home, January 2017
Each month, school newsletters include a one-page insert called Home-School Connections. It describes ways in which families can enhance student learning at home in the areas of literacy; numeracy; healthy, caring schools and improving student learning.
This month’s Home-School Connections (Pdf) features:
- Literacy: Encourage your child to read critically and ask questions. Reading and Writing with Your Child – A Parent Guide (pdf)
- Numeracy: Math Challenge: Squares Upon Squares. Explore new and interesting ideas in mathematics on youcubed.
- Healthy, Caring Schools: Help Bring Back Winter Play by getting outside for at least 60 minutes of active fun each day.
- Improved Student Learning: Self-regulation is the ability to manage your own energy states, emotions, behaviours and attention, in ways that are socially acceptable and help achieve positive goals.
