I’ve found several good resources sharing ideas on how parents can best help their children learn, and decided to bring them together in one post. You can see all my parent engagement-related “The Best” lists here.
Here are my picks for The Best Ideas On How Parents Can Help Their Kids With Schoolwork At Home:
Lorna Constantini has posted a link to a Livebinder of parent resources with activities that parents can do at home.
“But What If I Don’t Know English?” is another great resource from Colorin Colorado. It shares ideas on how parents who don’t speak English can still help their children develop literacy skills.
Census: Parents Reading More With Their Children is a new Education Week article that includes useful research that teachers might want to share with parents. It could be used to help parents see what are some good ways they could interact with their children to encourage learning.
En Camino: Educational Toolkit For Families is a series of free online “modules,” available in both English and Spanish, designed to help answer parent and student questions about college. It’s from the National Center For Family Literacy.
It’s related to three other “The Best…” lists:
The Best Posts About Getting Our Students To Attend College
The Best Sites For Encouraging ELL’s To Attend College
The Best Resources For Showing Students Why They Should Continue Their Academic Career.
Involving Latino Parents in Homework is a nice practical post from ASCD Express.
Feedback is welcome.
