Classroom Clues

With “back-to-school” time right around the corner, it can be helpful to start reviewing basic strategies that can help your child feel prepared for the classroom. After some time away from the classroom, it is normal for your child to feel unsure of what to do or how to behave. Regardless of what class they are in or what task is being done, here are some tips to give your child to help increase their understanding of the classroom and their expectations:


Be aware of where people are in the room. For example, if your classmates are at their desk, that is a good indicator that you should be at your desk too! 


What time of day is it? What activities are typical for that time of day? While each day can change, classroom routines often have a similar layout, helping students predict what to expect.

For example, if you start each day with reading, your child can remember if it is morning, it is reading time


What things do you see around the classroom? If your classmates have their math book and calculator on their desk, you probably should too! This can help you remember what objects you need, while also giving you a clue at what topic you will be working on 


If your classmates are lining up at the door, that is a good clue that you will be leaving the room and you should follow their actions and also line up 

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

**Even though these clues can help you to better understand what is happening in your classroom, it is okay to have questions! If you are unsure where to be, what to do, or what you need…ask! Ask your teacher or a classmate if you need help, and together you can find the answer 🙂
