Child Feedback Process

Child Feedback Information

  • You receive an email with "Child Feedback || ..." in the subject line about 5-10 minutes before the class starts. After each class, please share your Child Feedback within 2 hours. If you have back-to-back classes, you can share the feedback immediately after your last class.

  • In the email, there is a list of your students with separate links next to each name. 

  • Click each link and a new tab opens with the "Child Feedback" form to fill in. Note: The child's name, batch, and date are automatically filled-in.

  • Click 'present' or 'absent' for that class.

  • Fill-in Student Feedback. Note: Give the parent a quick summary of topics covered in the class, how the student performed, and if anything still needs to be practiced. 

Regular & Trial Child Feedback Information & Tips


Regular Class Feedback

  • After each class, please share your Child Feedback within 2 hours. If you have back-to-back classes, you can share the feedback immediately after your last class.

  • Questions to answer while providing student’s feedback:
    • What topics were covered today?
      Examples: Today we covered ______. We explored _____. We developed ______ methods today.

    • What did the student improve in?
      Examples: STUDENT improved on ______. STUDENT can now _____. STUDENT demonstrated ______ skills.

    • What does the student need to practice more on? What can they do to help bridge the gap?
      Example: STUDENT can practice _____ at home. STUDENT might try _____ so that *REASON*.

    • What techniques are working for the student while learning something new? (Optional)
      Example: STUDENT uses *explain technique* which is easier to *explain which method/problem it’s used for*.


  • Last 5 Classes of Batch: Start building on the areas the student needs to continue support and start suggesting courses that might help. Check out our courses on our website.
    • Example: STUDENT would benefit by taking *COURSE NAME* at SplashLearn to continue improving their ____ skills. You can receive a 10% discount on the course by using the discount code: _____ (case sensitive).

  • Do not write generic comments such as: “STUDENT did great. I am proud of STUDENT.” If you choose to say something like this, indicate ‘WHY’ you are proud, or “HOW’ or “IN WHAT” the student did (great/well/etc.).

  • 1st Class is a No-Show: Share feedback with the child marked as ‘absent.’ If there is only 1 student and the 2nd class consecutively is a No-Show, only mark ‘absent’ and do not provide feedback.

  • If you don’t share timely feedback with the parent, it will affect receiving new batches. We value timely feedback since it’s critical for us. 


Trial Class Feedback

  • All the same information as for Regular Class Feedback PLUS:

  • Stress on the need to take the course.
    • ExampleSTUDENT would really benefit from taking this course to continue exploring *LIST TOPIC(S)* while we make math fun in my classroom.

  • Explain briefly what the course will entail.
    • ExampleCOURSE NAME will cover *LIST TOPICS* which we will take different approaches to solve a variety of problems.

  • Provide a positive tone for the child and that they can do the course.
    • Example: STUDENT demonstrated today that they can _____ which will be great during our (___unit/course).


Examples of Child Feedback

Here are some examples of Child Feedback that other tutors have done which include all the criteria.

Example 1

Today's class with ____ was fun! 

Here are the objectives of today's class:

Task 1: We looked at pictures and identified the correct number representation.

Task 2: We identified if we need ‘more’ or ‘have enough’ to reach the given number.

Task 3: We practiced matching the number with the correct picture.

____ did very well at identifying the correct number with the given picture! ___ can continue practicing the concept of ‘more’ or ‘have enough’ when trying to reach a certain number. This would be good practice even while eating, for example, I need 5 carrots on my plate. You place 3 carrots and ask, “Do you need more or have enough carrots to make 5 carrots?”. I hope he enjoyed our class and that he's having fun while learning! I loved making animal sounds with him today, lol. I will see him for another great class on Friday!


Thank you, Tutor  ____

Example 2


Today we continued practicing the estimation process of finding the quotient for larger problems. _____ improved with estimating the quotient when solving our division problems. She explained the process for solving our 2-digit and 3-digit quotients when dividing by a 2-digit number. She correctly rounded the divisor and needed slight guidance/reminding to look for the multiple of our estimated divisor when solving. _____ is improving her division skills and really learning the estimation process. 


_____ can further develop her multiplication skills by taking the "Master Fractions in 12 Hours" which includes addition, subtraction, and multiplication of fractions, or "Math Champ: Multiplying Multiple-Digit Numbers" which looks at different ways to multiply our 2-digit and more multiplication problems. You can receive a 10% off discount on the course by using the code:___ (case sensitive).


I hope to see _____ again in my class here at SplashLearn but all tutors here are just as great. She is fun and really seems to be enjoying herself while improving her math skills. Thank you. Tutor __


Example 3


______ did a great job subtracting within 20 today! Just like in the previous class, we focused on the numbers of 10. Instead of adding numbers with 10, we subtracted numbers from 10. We practiced on first making our number bonds with one number being a 10. Then we practiced subtracting from 10 and adding the two leftover numbers. When starting out learning about subtracting numbers within 20, this is a helpful technique. Once a student feels comfortable subtracting and has practiced they tend to move on and not use number bonds of 10. ______ practiced using the number bond technique today but also did a great job just subtracting numbers. She did tend to use her fingers on some subtraction problems but that is normal for students to do in the beginning. With time she will no longer use her fingers to add or subtract. Math is a subject where repetition and practice helps a great deal. Well done  ______! See you soon! Tutor  ___    


Example 4


_____ was on fire today and did an amazing job! Today, we talked about place value within 1000 and the relationship between ones, tens, and hundreds. We practiced using the base 10 blocks to better understand the place value relationship. We also used counters along with a place value chart to break apart numbers by place value. _____ has an excellent understanding of place value and is very comfortable using these models to identify numbers less than 1000 as well as taking them apart according to place value! This is a very important skill she will need to build upon for all other math operations. At home, _____ can practice using base 10 blocks and counters in a place value chart to break apart numbers and help her solve addition and subtraction problems. Great job today ____! Thank you, Tutor ____




Example 5

    

_____ did an amazing job today! We continued to practice our strategy from the last class for multiplying two-digit by single-digit numbers. _____ did a great job using the distributive property to break numbers up into easier multiplication problems. She was able to analyze two methods of breaking up numbers, and explain why one was more efficient than the other. She was able to solve these problems independently using a range of strategies. She is also able to explain her mathematical thinking well. We spent some time reviewing multiplying single-digit numbers with multiples of ten using the associative property (from lesson 4). After a quick refresher, _____ was able to solve problems like this on her own. She can continue to practice switching between strategies, depending on the problem. Next class, we will be taking everything we learned and applying it to 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication. I am excited to see how _____ does with this new challenge! Tutor  ____



Example 6


____ worked so hard today on his multiplication facts of 4 and 6. I tried to alter the lesson a little today to work on some skip counting. If he can nail down his skip counting, these other concepts we are beginning to introduce will be so easy for him! So please have him work on skip counting. I want him to specifically work on 2, 5, 3, 10, and 4 like we did today. We did skip-counting by 4s to the tune of Row Row Row Your Boat and I could see it was helping. He got distracted with other songs, but this just tells me that singing will help him.  So have him sing his 4s for practice. Thank you so much for letting me tutor ____. I am having so much fun with him, and am excited for our next class! Tutor  ____



Example 7


____ has done an amazing job with this course and ___ is ready for your next challenge. Today, ____ did an awesome job making 10s and then 100s to easily subtract bigger numbers. I was very impressed with her working out the problems as we went on because her answers were accurate and quite fast! To check your work, she used different strategies such as ________. ____ is a wonderful student and I hope to see her at SplashLearn again! Thank you, Tutor ______


Example 8


____ was focused on the word problems today. We put the division concepts learned into practice with word problems. ____ identified the keywords in the problems and was able to write the division sentences. To find the answer we thought multiplication and skip counted. For example, [20 ÷ 5=?], so [what?] x 5 =20? We skip counted to find the answer. After some examples, ____ understood how to solve the problems on her own with little assistance. When you are ready to take more classes you can use this referral code for a discount [___]. All the best to ____! Tutor ____


Example 9


Hello! ____ did a great job in class today! Today’s class was an introduction to word problems, and also creating and solving addition equations. Overall, _____ understood the major concepts and was engaged in the entire lesson! If possible, she can study and rework the example problems for extra practice. If she has any questions or any particular challenges, she should be sure to write them down so that I can answer them at the start of our next class. Again, _____ did great, it was great to meet her and I look forward to teaching her again soon! Please feel free to reach out via Splashlearn messaging if you have any questions or concerns. I hope _____ and family have a great Wednesday evening! Regards, Tutor  ____
