Monitor His Progress

Newsflash: Most schools don’t teach everything in the curriculum—often to accommodate standardized test preparation. Download the year’s curriculum from your school district’s website, and keep track of what your kid is actually learning in class. If the teacher skips lessons on music or drama that you think are important, consider supplementing with an instrument instructor, or do it yourself by helping your budding thespian pen a play and recruit his pals to put on a performance for neighbors.
