The new academic session is in full swing and by now, your child has also settled into a routine. But, as parents, it’s essential that you keep communicating with your child’s teachers about her progress and behaviour throughout the year.
The role of the class teacher is essential in ensuring your child’s academic growth. From providing the right learning environment, to ensuring discipline, and monitoring his progress in class, academically and socially, the class teacher has a significant impact on his school year.
As a parent, it’s your responsibility to talk to the class teacher and understand how your child is coping at school. Here are some important questions you should ask your child’s class teacher:
About your child’s academic skills
Reading skills: What are my child’s areas of weakness and strengths when it comes to reading comprehension, fluency and vocabulary?
Writing skills: Is my child a hesitant writer or takes to it confidently? How’s his progress in terms of handwriting and style?
Maths skills: What are the problem points when it comes to learning maths? How can I help her at home?
About your child’s communication skills
About your child’s social skills
