Ideas and activities for home:

1. Read with your child 20 - 30 minutes daily. If you are short on books please go to and print out their free books. Look for free books leveled F and above. The public library also has wonderful selections. If your child is struggling, prompt with "first sound" for the word or ask them to show you how to tap sounds out then blend to find the word. Also, talk about context to figure out difficult words.

2.Give your child a notebook and have them write daily. You can have them summarize their reading or give them a short prompt. Have them draw a picture first including many details. This helps them develop ideas for writing.

3. Math games to play that require only a deck of cards: top-it, addition top-it, subtraction top-it and what number comes before and after. Your child should know how to play all these games.

4. There are some wonderful educational games under student links. Please have your child explore them.

5. Get outside and play!!!!
