Meadowview Intermediate School March 23 celebrated 5th grade Reading and Math Family Night. This was an evening for parents to come with their family to learn tips for helping their child in reading and math; it was designed to help parents and offer a time for asking questions about routines, homework, and reading and math subjects in general. This is an event MVI plans to offer parents and families each year.
“Teachers want to provide parents with some extra information, helpful tips, and an opportunity to ask questions about helping their child with homework in the areas of reading and math,” teacher Liz Sullivan said. “Sometimes parents do not feel confident helping their child with homework because they may not have learned to do math or read with the same strategies that students are being taught today.”
“This is an opportunity for teachers to share curriculum changes and to provide helpful tips for parents when helping their child with homework, in particular. We were happy with the response as the event was well attended,” Sullivan said.
Fourth grade teachers hosted their Reading and Math Family Night on Feb. 13. They too hope to make this an annual event for an added opportunity for communication with parents at Meadowview Intermediate School.
