If your child is running late some mornings, send along fresh fruit, nuts, yogurt, or half a peanut butter and banana sandwich.
Many schools provide nutritious breakfast options before the first bell.
Kids also need the right amount of sleep to be alert and ready to learn all day. Most school-age kids need 10 to 12 hours of sleep a night. Bedtime difficulties can arise at this age for a variety of reasons.
Homework, sports, after-school activities, TVs, computers, and video games, as well as hectic family schedules , can contribute to kids not getting enough sleep. Lack of sleep can cause irritable or hyperactive behavior and might make it hard for kids to pay attention in class. It's important to have a consistent bedtime routine, especially on school nights. Be sure to leave enough time before bed to allow your child to unwind before lights out and limit stimulating diversions like TV, video games, and Internet access.
Teach Organizational Skills When kids are organized, they can stay focused instead of spending time hunting things down and getting sidetracked. What does it mean to be organized at the elementary level?
For schoolwork, it means having an assignment book and homework folder many schools supply these to keep track of homework and projects.
Check your child's assignment book and homework folder every school night so you're familiar with assignments and your child doesn't fall behind. Set up a bin for papers that you need to check or sign.
Also, keep a special box or bin for completed and graded projects and toss papers that you don't need to keep. Updated and relevant content through National Geographic photographs and video engages learners by connecting them to people and places from around the world. Product Information.

Avoid fill-in-the-blank worksheets, matching, and vocabulary quizzes at all costs. In his book, On Writing, Stephen King states that vocabulary should be on the top shelf of your writing toolbox, and "Don't make a conscious effort to improve it. However, Stevie continues with, "You'll be doing that improving vocabulary while you're reading.
Now we're talking; now we're learning new vocabulary on the go, in the field, and LIVE naturally. But how do we get kids to do that? DO: Model Inquisitiveness Teaching kids new words and definitions is very important, but what's more crucial to ongoing vocabulary development is modeling when and how to be inquisitive about words.
Here are a few "moments" that I use to model how to naturally investigate words and directly teach them as well. Read Aloud: I read out loud to my students every day. Please, oh please, don't ever cut this from your daily routine. It's so important for kids to hear how words and punctuation intertwine to create a coherent story.
This is a great time to discuss the word choice of the author, the good and the bad.
I like to use the think-aloud technique to show students how I mentally investigate words. Gaetan's mental thoughts: wait a minute -- what does that word mean? Re-read the sentence.. Do I see a pre-fix or a suffix?
I'm sure you get the idea. When parents ask me how they can help their child improve their reading, I tell them to investigate a word a day that appears in their reading homework and plant the "word seed. This is where a teacher can really access student needs and meet them at their wordsmith level.
Along with discussing words, for those of you who need something concrete and documented, "the list" is always a good idea. I have my students create individualized spelling lists and vocabulary lists in their writing journal, which are updated during conferencing or just on-the-go.
I also create class lists of good words, such as "Buff Verbs" and "Instead of Said" words speaker tags.
