Helping in your child’s classroom isn’t limited to chaperoning field trips or bringing in birthday treats. From September through June, teachers welcome parent helpers for more than an extra pair of hands. As a new school year starts, here are 12 ways that you can help your child’s teacher. All you have to do is ask!
Help Around the Classroom
Restock the Supply Closet
Be a Reading Buddy
If you have time during the school day, offer to come in and read with students during a set time each week. As you read, ask students questions about the stories to help them develop reading fluency and comprehension skills.
Lead a Small Group
Be a Bulletin Board Buddy
Deliver a School Day Treat
Provide IT Support
Bring Your Set of Skills
Teach a Lesson
Make Use of At-Home Time
Record Your Favorite Stories
Every time you spend time putting up a bulletin board, reading with a child, simply sharpening pencils or any other way you help in your child’s classroom this year, you’re strengthening your child’s connection with school, and that’s always worth the effort!
