Hello parents, we are back to school for the second half of the school year 17 - 18, and as you know the most stressful season for your child because the Florida State Assessments (FSA) are on their way.
As a teacher I see everyday the struggles and challenges students face in school; peer pressure, distractions, bullying, and a lot of other factors that affect their learning experience, such as problems at home, financial situations, etc...
But one of the most stressful experiences they go through are the FSA's, students are tested in different subject areas, such as Math, English, Reading, and then you can add the EOC's for Geometry, Social Studies, Science, etc.. The problem I see with testing is that teachers are focused on results on those tests and not on the child learning and mastering the subject.
With students being distracted by so many things it's hard for some of the students to keep their attention on what's being teach in class and they miss a lot of information that they need to pass those tests.
An alternative that you have is enrolling your children in after school programs, but they are expensive.
Here are free suggestions for your child to work at home, the good news? It's FREE!
