Welcome Elementary schoolers (and parents!)
At Learnable we know that every student learns differently, so whether you need help with reading, math, or just need some help with hacking your learning, we have ways to help! Keep checking back for more strategies and check the blog for more ideas!
Some things to keep in mind with a struggling learner:
- All students do well if they can, as Ross Greene always says, so consider what might be in the way of your child learning. Are they hungry? Are they confused about the instructions? Are they upset about something and having a hard time shifting to the next task?
- If a task feels like too much for your student, break it down into smaller tasks and reward them for their effort on each of the smaller tasks.
- It is sometimes hard to remember how hard learning something for the first time can be, so try and place yourelf in your student's shoes. Learning is hard work!
