2. Click on the K-1 Card Login button

How to read with a beginning reader:
- Encourage your child to use his/her finger to point to each word.
- Read a sentence and have your child repeat it.
- Take turns reading a sentence each or page each.
- Talk about the story as you read it. What do you think will happen next? What does the story remind you of? How do you think the character feels?
- Don't be afraid to read the same book again. Repeated reading helps build reading fluency!
- 15-20 minutes of reading is plenty for a beginning reader.
- Happy Reading!🙂

School Counselor Ms. Debbie
This is a time we never quite expected. Most children do not handle change and stress well. Keeping a schedule, reinforcing rules, and good
communication is important. Children experience all the emotions we do without coping skills.
The following categories can be googled for helping children with stress, anxiety, depression and anger:
Tai Chi For Kids
Relaxation for kids
Parents may use these ideas for strategies::
Good luck to all of us during such an historical time. Please use this as a positive time to bond with your child. In life we all face struggles, springboard off this stressful time to teach your child positive coping skills. Play, exercise, art, music, reading, and creative play are
great strategies through stressful times. Modeling coping skills is essential for lifelong learning. Parents Are Their Child’s First Teachers.
