What can I help my child with?

Reading-

-PRACTICE SIGHT WORDS AT HOME!! Kids can practice spelling their sight words with cereal, magnetic letters etc. You could post the sight words on index cards around the house for your child to read! :)

- COMPREHENSION!! The main struggle with kids on a level 4-10 is comprehension. Students need to be able to retell the events from a story. Ask your children comprehension questions about the story that the read. They should be able to retell you the story from beginning to end with some detail!

Writing-

-Practice spelling simple CVC words with your child and stretching out the words. (dig, rug, flop, etc.) New spelling test will be in January!

-Have your child write a sentence (or 2) about their day! Other ideas could be write about the book they just read, write a letter to a friend, create their own story!

-Encourage capital letters at the beginning with a period at the end.

Math-

-Practice WRITING numbers 1-50.... really work on those teens!

-PRACTICE COUNTING all the way to at least 50!!

-Practice identifying coins at home and their value.

-Practice counting with your child all the way to 100... and then backwards from 20.

-skip count with your chlid by 5s, 10s, and 2s!
