5 Ideas ECE and Elementary Teachers Can Use to Support Parent Engagement at Home

Creating a Parent  Engagement Plan for Teachers

One thing I think teachers can do is to encourage family support for education  at home. Here are some suggestions.

  1. Choose 2 books a month which support  what you are teaching and encourage  parents and children  to read them and discuss  them at home. Allow children extra credit for reporting family impressions in class.
  2. Create take home boxes of family projects which can be taken home and done.
  3. Create homework  projects  where children  need parental support  to complete.  Include detailed instructions  for parents.
  4. Invite parents into your classroom. Make suggestions  for how they can help. Send home family activity  pages which support  class learning.
  5. Make several suggestions of family outings where children can see and engage in enriching activities.
