Then she often asks them more specific questions about school. “If you just ask 'How was your day at school?' then you're probably not going to get a good answer,” said Papeskov, of Hagerstown. So she asks what they wrote about, what they did in math, and gets them to talk about their favorite part of the day. Going beyond the general question about their school day - to what was the best thing they did, the most important thing they learned, or what they did in science, English or math - lets children know that parents think school is important and reinforces their learning, said Clyde Harrell, director for curriculum and instruction for Washington County Public Schools.
