Thank you for encouraging your child to continue their education in these unusual circumstances.
Please remember it is not your role to teach new skills in math. During this supplemental learning period we hope you are able to find joy working with your child to practice skills they have already acquired. This is the perfect time to celebrate your child’s accomplishments and to see what they have learned so far this year.
You child’s teacher will continue to share appropriate practice materials to guide your time together. Remember there is still value in the everyday math that you are already doing (e.g., baking, playing games, noticing patterns).
Most importantly, keep in mind that your experience together should be remembered as an enjoyable time. If you and your child are struggling to work on the assignments together, check in with your teacher so that you are able to adjust the expectations.
