– Out of thousands of high achieving Kumon Students from the United States, Canada, and Mexico, just 56 were selected to attend the second annual Kumon Student Conference in Calgary, Canada on July 18th. The invited students are studying at least three years above their grade level in math and/or reading at their respective Kumon Centers.
Attendees had the opportunity to learn from each other through a variety of enjoyable learning activities designed to foster team building, group discussion, critical thinking and creativity. In this unique learning environment, students heard from inspirational former Kumon Students who have completed the Kumon Program, some of whom are now successful professionals.
“These results translated into a self-esteem boost that I didn’t anticipate,” Ms. Goldman said.
Teachers are recommending students who can benefit from Kumon’s instruction and, with parent involvement, are making the enrichment center an official partner in the learning process.
“The idea is not for Kumon students to be ‘tutored’ per se but to ‘self-propel’ through the material,” says center director Naomi Sazuki…
Even if your child prefers roving work stations to a dedicated desk, identify appropriate study spots and make sure she has all necessary supplies. “Try to pick the quietest areas in your home that will have as few distractions as possible,” advises Rima Muth from the national math and reading enrichment program Kumon.
