Are you a working mom looking for ways to help your child succeed in school? Check out Mentoring Minds.
As a working mom, I’ve often struggled with finding the time to help with homework, review graded assignments, and help my child retain concepts he’s learned in school.
Standardized testing is something that the schools work on year round to ensure students know important concepts and are able to apply them at the end of each grade in various subjects.
Mentoring Minds “develops and publishes affordable learning tools for children that are designed to encourage the development of critical thinking skills. The materials are available in a variety of workbooks, flip charts, print, and digital aids.”
They provide educational resources for CCSS (Common Core Standards and State Standardized Testing).
I love the Mentoring Minds website because they offer solutions to educational issues that working moms, like me, face:
” The Accommodations Wheel serves as a tool to stimulate collaboration and leads to an informed, responsible staff. When educators comprehend that purposeful accommodations can actually create an improved learning environment, then success is within reach of students.” (mentoringminds.com/research/accommodations-wheel)
- Accommodations for other behavioral disorders/learning disabilities
“Educating parents and providing training for parents of ADD/ADHD students is crucial. For parents to become effective advocates they need to learn as much as possible. To enable educators to work productively with parents, a section entitled “Parent Success” is addressed on the face of the wheel.”
- Reinforcing learning – strategies for parents
- Making learning fun – fun activities for children
What do you do to help your child succeed in school?
