Come join Mr. Cavataio and start your morning off with some family exercise on Tuesdays. Waking Up with the Wolves takes place on the Wass Indoor Track from 8:00-8:30 a.m. during the winter months.
BUILD YOUR CHILD'S ENTHUSIASM ABOUT SCHOOL AND LEARNING
A child’s experiences at school affect her attitude about learning, and so do her experiences at home. To build your child’s enthusiasm for education:
- Be a role model. If you have a positive attitude about school, your child is more likely to feel the same way. In addition to saying good things about school, attend school meetings, parent-teacher conferences and other school events. Supervise your child’s homework time and show interest in her school day.
- Compliment success. When your child works hard, be sure to speak up! This helps her make a connection between effort and taking pride in her success.
- Link lessons to real life. Show your child how what she learns at school can help her in real life. Math skills may help her spend money wisely. A vocabulary word may show up in a favorite book.
