Our education starts from our birth and start grasping the things from 6th year so parents need to be very careful while teaching their kid. Parents need to plan carefully before providing them a career.

In fact, parent involvement in education is so important, Many kids today are falling behind even before they leave elementary school. The latest Nation’s Report Card states that 83% of children from low-income families do not read proficiently by the end of 4th grade. In fact, there is a 30 million-word gap that exists between high-income children and low-income children by the time they start elementary school.

How can parents ensure their child does not fall between the cracks? Here are four ways you can get involved in your child’s education. 

  1. Read along with your child while they are studying:

Studies show that early literacy tends to foster healthy brain development; the earlier kids learn to read, the better they will do in other subjects. You do not need to read the book to share it with your child. Open it up and start telling a story about what you see on the page. Play a game with your child, pretend to tell a story just from the pictures. Even better, let him help you tell the story.

2.Speak with your child in English or some other to improve their Vocab:

Speaking to your child is just as important for literacy growth as reading to him. Elizabeth Burke Bryant, Executive Director of Rhode Island Kid’s Count, a campaign to close the gap in reading levels between low-income students and their higher income peers, says literacy-rich interaction between a parent and a child is key. In a small snippet of conversation, hundreds of words and images are exchanged. Those words are important building blocks to a rich vocabulary.

Talk to them about anything and everything—how a thermometer works, what colors things are, the lyrics to songs. It is important to create a literacy-rich home environment at the earliest age possible.

  1. Open up communication between Pre K/K and elementary school teachers.

Experts agree that preschool is a fundamental, yet often overlooked part of schooling. Commonly, the PreK and K-12 systems do not communicate, which leaves room for gaps in learning, and opens the possibility of under-preparing or over-preparing a child for the elementary years.

 Don’t undervalue the preschool years. Find out what your child is learning, what they will be learning and how you can prepare them every step of the way.

  1. Provide them useful resources:

The first stop in locating resources is your local library. Not only does it provide reading material, it is also a great place to meet other parents. You can also use the library to research additional community hubs in your area, such as the YMCA, local nonprofits or after school programs.

Take for example, the Philadelphia School District’s innovative idea: Parent University. It is the school district’s innovative new series of workshops, created specifically for parents. They offer 52 different classes, including “English as a Second Language”, “Educational Conversations”, and even a class called “How to Make Parent-Teacher Conferences Work for Your Child”. All of these classes are free for parents in the district, and most are aimed at training parents to be more involved in their children’s education.

One of the best things you can do to help your child is to educate yourself. Find out what resources your school provides for parents and get yourself involved.
