HOME-SCHOOL RELATIONS. A SECTION OF KINDERGARTEN.
DOLPH, WILLIAM; AND OTHERS
EFFECTIVE HOME-SCHOOL RELATIONS PROMOTE BETTER COMMUNITY UNDERSTANDING, MORE SUCCESSFUL TEACHERS, HAPPIER PARENTS AND MORE ADEPT PUPILS. PARENTS AND TEACHERS ARE IMPORTANT TO YOUNG CHILDREN DURING THE TRANSITION FROM HOME TO SCHOOL. SINCE EDUCATIONAL PROCEDURES, TECHNIQUES AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS HAVE CHANGED OVER THE YEARS, PARENTS NEED TO HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THEM. PARENT COUNSELING IS RAPIDLY BECOMING A RECOGNIZED RESPONSIBILITY OF TEACHERS OF YOUNG CHILDREN. PARENTS BENEFIT FROM CONFERENCES BY LEARNING OF THE CHILD'S RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS, HIS PROGRESS IN SCHOOL WORK, HIS SELF-CONTROL, HIS RESPONSE TO SUGGESTIONS, AND HIS SPECIAL INTERESTS AND ABILITIES IN SCHOOL. THE TEACHER BENEFITS FROM CONFERENCES BY LEARNING ABOUT THE CHILD'S FEELING ABOUT SCHOOL, HIS INTERESTS AND ABILITIES OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL, HIS FAMILY AND NEIGHBORHOOD RELATIONSHIPS, AND HIS FEARS OR EMOTIONAL TROUBLES. SUGGESTIONS GIVEN TO IMPLEMENT SUCCESSFUL CONFERENCES INCLUDE ARRANGEMENTS FOR NO INTERRUPTIONS DURING A CONFERENCE, THE GREETING OF PARENTS IN A FRIENDLY AND RELAXED MANNER, AND THE REALIZATION THAT MOST PARENTS CANNOT BE OBJECTIVE ABOUT THEIR OWN CHILDREN. COPIES OF PARENT CONFERENCE FORMS, SCHOOL ENTRANCE INVENTORIES, AND KINDERGARTEN COMPLETION FORMS ARE INCLUDED. GROWTH PATTERNS OF KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN ARE NOTED IN THE AREAS OF PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT, SPAN OF ATTENTION, GETTING ALONG WITH OTHERS, FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS, ART, LANGUAGE ABILITY, AND NUMBER CONCEPTS.
