Understanding your child’s strengths, interests, and challenges helps the teacher build an approach to learning that works for your child. It also helps the teacher predict what might be hard and figure out what kind of support would help.
Having that information makes it easier for the teacher to engage your child in learning. For example, maybe writing is a struggle and the teacher knows your child has a passion for dogs. The teacher could find a way to work something about dogs into a writing assignment.
Knowing more about their students helps teachers tailor instruction for kids. Find out how teachers use
