The NBC News project Education Nation has created a sleek parent toolkit with helpful ideas about what parents can do at home to support their child’s learning in school. It highlights the big educational concepts students should master in each grade, offers tips about the kinds of questions parents can bring up at home and how to support kids’ math and English lessons, and gives parents a sense of the obstacles they might face in future, all the way to graduation day. It also looks at the social and emotional side of learning and development and offers ideas on where parents can find more information or get involved in other ways. For parents seeking a little support, this could be a helpful tool.

        I’m not sure Tina, the toolkit webpage says it’s sponsored by Pearson on the bottom right corner. Just wanted to be sure this was clarified. Not that it should matter as this toolkit is still very informative and very useful.
