There is certainly no guarantee that the activities presented here will insure a successful school year. Teachers, parents, and students must be positive and enthusiastic. All teachers have ideas regarding how best to help students. This unit is only meant to bring important ideas into clear view. They are ideas so simple that they are sometimes overlooked.
Parents should be encouraged to share thoughts on the unit and to offer suggestions regarding the activities presented. Everyone, parent, child, and teacher has the same goal in mind—to help the child learn. A positive beginning can go a long way toward reaching this end. A certificate of achievement should be issued to parents and children completing the required number of activities—they are certainly deserving. CONGRATULATIONS! Keep up the good work!
