This back to school assignment will help get you, your parents, and your students on the same page as to what they should be doing at home.
This guide in intended as a supplement to your first-week-of-school packets and assignments. The first part is handout/article for the parents’ information and the last page is an assignment for the parents and students to complete together.
While many of the routines on this guide seem like common sense to teachers who are immersed in it, we can’t always assume that everyone is on the same page. In fact, our experiences year-after-year confirm that everyone is assuredly not on the same page We are the ones at school that feel the effects of the poor home structures and routines, so let’s be proactive. Let’s be teachers - to the parents as well as the students.
