The best tools that elementary students can come to school equipped with are self-managing and monitoring skills. They need to be brought up to see the value in being a person of good character, through consistence of discipline, expectations, and a sense of belonging

EduGuide is offering parents the opportunity to download a free copy of "Elementary EduGuide," an online publication (http://www.EduGuide.org/elemeduguide ) that details strategies for raising a successful student. It also gives tips on saving for college.

One way to get kids excited about learning is to become excited yourself. If we as parents spent time with our kids modeling how much we value education, then our kids would value it, too. Find out what they like about school and focus on that. Ask your kids to tell you what they learned today, and remember that it's ok to push a little. If they aren't used to getting excited about learning, help them. If you don't know how, the "Elementary EduGuide" can help you.

"The best tools that elementary students can come to school equipped with are self-managing and monitoring skills. They need to be brought up to see the value in being a person of good character, through consistence of discipline, expectations, and a sense of belonging," said Kelli Mathers, second grade teacher in Breckenridge, Michigan.

EduGuide is a national nonprofit organization that provides many guides, tools, and resources to help parents make the most of their children's education, from cradle to college.

EduGuide recently launched an online community where parents and students can ask questions, get advice, and share experiences. For more information, visit EduGuide.org.
