Youwere your child's first teacher. From infancy through the toddler years, you helped him learn to talk, walk, and explore the world. It was a responsibility and a joy you readily embraced. You are the parent of a first grader. Your child spends a large part of the day at school, but she still really needs your help at home. Research studies have shown time and time again that children whose parents are involved in their education are happier and more successful in school. But without specific knowledge of your first grader's curriculum, it's difficult to know what your child is expected to learn this year. How Is My First Grader Doing in School? is essential for parents who truly care about their child's academic success. Drawing on more than sixteen years of experience as an educator, curriculum coordinator, and education consultant, author Jennifer Richard Jacobson will help you understand what's going on in your first grader's classroom and will teach you how to incorporate "teachable moments" into everyday interactions with your child. Here's how you can help your second grader succeed: Use the pull-out assessment booklet to determine what your child has already learned and what he or she needs to learn next. Read the easy-to-follow Assessment Guide, which will pinpoint your child's strengths and weaknesses and direct you to activities specific to your child's needs. Do the simple, parent-friendly learning activities with your child -- many of them take as little as five minutes. Unlike memorization drills and workbooks, which can stifle rather than nurture your child's naturally inquisitive mind, the activities in this book are fun and engaging for your child and easy to integrate into your family's everyday routines -- and they will yield substantial results. How Is My First Grader Doing in School? also includes a developmental overview of a first grader, commonly asked questions and answers about the first grade, and authoritative advice on how best to work with your child's teacher. Extensively reviewed by the Parent-Teacher Advisory Board, a panel of school administrators and teachers, the book is age-appropriate and supported by leading academic professionals.
