Connect with the School
  
Your child’s teacher is available to answer questions about your child’s progress and what they are learning in class.  Be sure to attend conferences, contact your child’s teacher via email, notes, and/or phone calls.  Review any work that comes home (corrected papers, classwork or homework) to see what your child is working on in class.

Questions you can ask the teacher:
  • Has my child mastered his/her basic math facts?
  • Can you show me examples of student work that meets the learning goals?
  • Is my child working on grade level?
  • Does my child know how to problem solve?
  • Does my child persevere and focus during Math Workshop?
