Schoolfamily.com - Helping parents help their kids succeed at school

I am frustrated with the lack of help that my 8 year old is getting in 3rd grade especially in math. I went to back to school night and expressed how my child struggles and that how I have to work one on one with the teach, however even if my child asks for help she is not getting it. I don't know what to do... I need help at school as I am already spending hours a week trying to do what I know.... any suggestions?

Back to school night is a crazy time for parents and teachers -- maybe she just didn't take in your concerns at that time. I would suggest setting up a one-on-one meeting with your child's teacher to express your concerns and work towards a parent/teacher/child game plan to help your child. Think that you will find this recent blog by Livia McCoy very helpful in preparing for your meeting with the teacher.

Ask her teachers to stay after school and help her, When I need help in school i ask for it and i know your daughter does too. See if the school offers supervised study after school. I am an high school student that used to have the same problems so i know what's it like
