What is your advice about? Working with parents
1: Welcome parents into your classroom. You need to engage with them so easier to get them to come to you.
2: Start a conversation. They will want to have a relationship with you because you are an important part of their life at home.
3: Take every opportunity to share good news. It is so much easier to share bad news if you have previously given some great news.
4: Listen to any parental concerns. It may be difficult to hear but if you can show you listen and act on a concern you will build a reputation of being fair and approachable.
5: Find ways to keep parents informed. Giving parents an idea of what you are learning and questions to ask at home helps reinforce all of your hard work in the classroom.
