When the Report Card Becomes Live
School is really hard work! Report cards are an important resource to reflect on achievement, progress and areas to improve upon. It’s important to make use of this important information before it gets archived for the year.
The mid-year report card is especially helpful as there is still plenty of time to make positive changes before June.
Have an Initial Read:
· Review the report card in full prior to sitting down with your child.
· Read the comments and identify successes, celebrations and opportunities for improvement and next steps.
· Stay big picture – remember every year is different and some will be more challenging than others. This year, as you can imagine, has been filled with many challenges and an understanding that many students have tremendous gaps in their learning. Achievement is not quite where we would typically expect it to be.
Review with Your Child:
· Your child will have a lot of insight into what is in their report card. Ask them what they think about it. If you are able to make discussions about school part of your regular family routine during the year, it will help avoid any surprises during report card time.
· Celebrate their accomplishments and stay positive. If your child’s report card has lower marks, find areas of success and ensure they are recognized and celebrated.
· Avoid comparisons with any friends or family – it’s important to stay focused on what is realistic for your child.
Make a Plan Together:
· After reviewing the report card, write down the areas of strength and one or two areas that have a next step that can be explored at home.
· Prepare a follow-up plan with your son or daughter and think about what activities and goals you can set for the rest of the school year. For example, a realistic goal for home would be to increase the amount of time reading at home, playing a math game before dinner, or writing a response journal entry to a family member once or twice each week.
· Make realistic goals (even if small) and think about strategies to help improve any organizational skills that might need attention.
· Parents are partners in their child’s education. Any consistent support you offer your child will be reflected in their academic achievement.
Should you have any questions please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher.
