    Math Support Ideas for Parents Presentation - here's a link to my parent presentation on 5/14/20

     

    Growth Mindset Kit - gives ideas about how to support your child in having a growth mindset REMEMBER - struggling is promotes problem-solving and perseverance

    Incentives - these PBIS ideas can motivate your child Think of your biggest struggle and incentivize that 

    If you clearly explain what you want them to do and let them help decide on the incentives that they want, the result can be achieved (it may take patience and practice, so don't give up after 1 or 2 tries)

    • avoidance? then incentivize doing the work with only 1 reminder

    • complains about doing it? then incentivize completion of a task/assignment with no complaints

    • isn't completing work? then incentivize each piece he/she completes

    • arguing about the work? then incentivize when you tell him/her what to do and it is done without discussion
