My favorite gift I have ever gotten was an ornament that one of my students painted for me. I put it on my tree every year and it makes me smile. Because teachers spend so much money throughout the year, gift cards to the teacher store, office depot, wal mart, etc. is always appreciated. I always get way too much candy that I am way too tempted to eat. :) I think with anything, teaches just love feel being appreciated. We hope that parents understand how much we love and care for their children every day. Merry Christmas!

How much help should parents give their kids with homework?

Kreative in Kinder

Children should be able to complete homework on their own. I would encourage the child to complete the assignment and always ask that a parent check the work. This helps the child be accountable to take their time and do their best work. If a child needs assistance, parents should provide thought provoking questions that will guide the child to figure out the answer for themselves. A parent's role should be to provide encouragement and accountability. If a child is struggling, they may require more assistance but it does not help them if you do their work for them. Most importantly, be patient and positive. If you get frustrated, they will get frustrated and give up.
