Summer Parent-Teacher Planning Tool

Summer Parent-Teacher Planning Tool

You’ve worked hard to help your child through this crazy year and we all deserve a break this summer. As kids get a chance to just be kids, learning doesn’t have to stop.  

Here’s a simple tool to help you shape summer learning.  

Review Key Skills

Before school is out, ask the teacher which specific skills are most important for your child to work on over the summer to be ready for next year.   

    • Which math skills should we focus on?
    • How can we support those skills at home?

Reconnect with What Matters

Who is your child most excited to spend time with? What interests your child? What makes them light up with confidence? Find out and lean into it this summer! This will help keep your child motivated to learn. 

  • How else can I support my child’s life skills (e.g. confidence, communication, problem solving)?
  • Which summer resources or programs do you recommend?

Reflect on Progress and Passions

Share what your child found challenging or was excited by with tutors, summer program leaders and new teachers in the fall. You have been front and center of your child’s learning this year and teachers need your insights and observations to best support your child.

For example, you could share “my 4th grader needs support with word problems that involve multiplication and division.”
