Parent-Teacher Relationships: Part III

In order for the teacher to do the best job for your child, he/she will need your cooperation and support. Lisa Capretto interviewed a Stacey Nelson, a third grade teacher from Tennessee and below are some tips for having a successful parent-teacher relationship throughout the school year.

Be Organized:

1. Establish a regular routine each night. This includes having children pack their backpacks the night before, to make sure they have everything they need for school the next day. "My number one thing my students tell me is, "My homework is done, but I left it sitting on the table," Nelson says. A simple evening routine can prevent this and prevent children from feeling rushed or disorganized in the morning.

2. Cut down on chaos and clutter at home. If your home life is disorganized, this can carry over into the classroom and make learning more difficult for the child. "When a child walks into my classroom, I can tell by the look on their face what kind of morning they had and what kind of day it will be," Nelson says.

3. Have an organized homework area. Simple things like paper, pencils, pens, rulers, crayons, and other materials in a designated area will help the child stay organized. A clean bedroom and home can help the child feel prepared and focused on the day ahead.
