With little time and mounting pressures, parents will find a short visit to The K-5 invaluable. Through theshort videos, ask the specialist (Ask the K5) columns and on-going blogs (The K5 News) with tips from real-life teachers, specialists and parents, they will find sound advice and helpful tips on subjects as varied as reading, writing, math, discipline, homework, home-life, nutrition and more: information and resources to make their children’s education a strong foundation for life.
The amazingly spirited and passionate Otis Kriegel is the founder of The K5. He also happens to be be one of the best elementary teachers in Manhattan with 15 years experience in community education and the arts. I have been very hard pressed to find a resource like this that actually addresses important issues. Issues like homework, discipline, reading comprehension, tips on getting out of the house on time, food allergies....etc. Issues that every parent with an elementary aged child goes through, thinks, seeks or needs at little guidance with. The site is only but a pup but I expect great things ahead. It's off to a pretty impressive start!
