encourage your child to speak to the teacher
when they are not sure of material that was
taught or have any other concerns. This builds their confidence
and builds the relationship between the teacher and student.
Do expect to see and sign all grades
given no matter what the grade is. This will
be a good time for you to discuss with your child how they are
doing, what works and doesn’t work for them when they study.
It also gives you a chance to praise them when they’ve
tried their best. If you
ask them how they think they did, they are more often willing to
tell you when it isn’t their best effort.
There should never be a surprise come report card time if
all procedures are followed.
