Timelines for Learning
The Timelines for Learning assist parents in monitoring their child’s academic progress. We want parents involved in their child’s learning. Parents of a child in jeopardy of missing a Timeline are notified. We call upon parents to work to help their child succeed in reaching each Timeline. The Timelines for Learning for each year are:

 Making it Happen: Role and Suggestions for Parents

Parents are to remain aware of their child’s progress. Scheduled meetings or phone calls should be made with the teacher to keep informed about your child’s development and progress toward reaching Timelines for Learning. Talk to your child’s teacher at least every other month and utilize the Parent Portal to check your child’s grades and attendance. A quick five-minute conversation or a short email can keep you informed.

Suggestions for helping your child include:

1. Review Quality Spelling words for your child for this year and previous years. Have your child practice reading and writing a few of them each day.

2. Practice multiplication tables with your child if they are in third grade or higher. Practice addition and subtraction math facts with your first and second grader.

3. Read to your child, have him/her read to you, or take turns reading.

4. When buying books for your child to read independently, buy books that are at their reading level (not grade level). When reading to your child, choose books above their reading level as listening comprehension is generally higher. Use the AR book finder to assist you in finding the correct leveled book for your child’s reading level.

5. Utilize the i-Ready program at home for practice specific to your child’s needs.

6. If your child is a TK or kindergartner, practice letters and sounds and high-frequency words (get them from the teacher).

7. Use the Corona Public Library and the CNUSD Parent Center for all its services. The library has free tutors in the afternoon, story time for kids of all ages, and many enjoyable easy to read books.

8. Utilize educational websites suggested by your child’s teacher for fun ways to practice needed skills.

9. Talk about the day’s events for a few minutes each day. Share what happened during your day and learn what happened during their day. Insist that students use complete sentences rather than one word responses. This oral language builds a child’s vocabulary and speaking skills. It is also great family time.
