ORIENTATION PROGRAMME FOR PARENTS,STUDENTS,STAKEHOLDERS AND TEACHERS
Children benefit greatly when parents/guardians take an active role in their child's education. It has been proven that when students have parental support at home, they enjoy their learning and school life even more. Students' attitude and perception of school improves as they develop more self –confidence in their road to becoming life-long learners and solid contributions to our community.
Parents who help their children succeed academically gain a sense of pride in their children as well as in themselves. Being an involved parent demonstrates to your child that you sincerely value their education.
Getting the school year off to a good beginning an Orientation Programme was convened
for the parents, students, teachers and stakeholders keeping in view health discussions on the issues related to students for all round of development.
This was excellent opportunity for the parents & students to visit the school to meet their teachers and administrative staff as to pick up valuable information to help get the school year off to a great start.
In Orientation programme focus was on the following points:
THE ROLE OF PARENTS
Be a role model for learning:
Thee parent's job is to show him how school can extend the learning you began together at home, and how exciting and meaningful this learning can be. As preschoolers grow into school age kids, parents become their children's learning coaches. Through guidance and remainders, parents help their kids organize their time and support their desires to learn new things in and out of school.
PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOUR CHILD LOVES.
"One of the most important things a parents can do is notices her child. Is he a talker or is he shy? Find out what interests him and help him explore it. Let your child show you the way he likes to learn.
TUNE INTO HOW YOUR CHILD LEARNS.
Many children use a combination of modalities to study and learn. Some learn visually through making and seeing pictures, others through tactile experiences. Parents may be able to pique his interest and explain tough topics by drawing pictures together, creating charts, building models, singing songs and even making up rhymes.
PRACTICES WHAT YOUR CHILD LEARNS AT SCHOOL.
Many teachers encourage parents to go over what their young children are learning in a non- pressured way and to practices what they may need extra help with,. This doesn't mean drilling them for success, but it may mean going over basic counting skills, multiplication tables or letter recognition, depending on the needs and learning level of your child.
SET ASIDE TIME TO READ TOGETHER.
Read aloud regularly, even to older kids, if your child is a reluctant reader, reading aloud will expose her to the structure and vocabulary of good literature and get her interested in reading more.
CONNECT WHAT YOUR CHILD LEARNS TO EVERYDAY LIFE.
Make learning part of your child's everyday experience, especially when it comes out of your child's natural questions. When you cook together, do measuring math,. When you drive in the car, count license plates and talk about the states. When you turn on the blender, explore how it works together. When you child studies the weather, talk about why it was so hot at the beach. Have give and take conversation, listening to your child's ideas instead of pouring information into their heads.
CONNECT WHAT YOUR CHILD LEARNS TO THE WORLD.
Find age appropriate ways to help your older child connect his school learning to world events. Start by asking questions. You might ask a younger child if he's heard about anything the news, and find out what he known. This will help your child becomes caring learner.
HELP YOUR CHILD TAKE CHARGE OF HIS LEARNING.
Parent wants to keep children in charge of their learning and become responsible for it. We want them to be responsible for their successes and failures, show them how engaging learning is, and that the motivation for learning should be the child's intrinsic interests, not an external reward."
DON'T OVER SCHEDULE YOUR CHILD.
While you may want to supplement school with outside activities, be judicious about how much you let or urge your child to do.
Keep TV to minimum. "Watching lots of TV does not given children the chance to develop their own interests and explore on their own, because it controls the agenda, "However, unstructured time with books, toys , crafts and friends allows children to learn how to be in charge of their agenda, and to develop their own interests, skills, solutions and expertise."
Learning something new yourself. Leaning something new yourself is a great way to model the learning process for your child. Take up a new language or craft, or read about an unfamiliar topic. Show your child what you are learning and how you may be struggling. You'll gain a better understanding of what your child is going through and your child may learn study skills by watching you study. You might even establish a joint study time.
