This week and next week, your 6th grader will be participating in a digital citizenship lesson during their Reading class. This lesson will be facilitated by their 6th grade counselor and media specialist. Please look for a homework assignment posted on their Reading teacher’s blog. The assignment will consist of a video and two questions.
If you as a parent worry about too much screen time being used in your household, I encourage you to follow the link below. There you will find a power point with some research-based information about screen time, some helpful suggestions to help with setting screen boundaries, and discussion questions to prompt a conversation with your child regarding this topic. The discussion questions would be great to go over this week while the topic is fresh on their minds.
