Help Your Child at Home

  • Pick a word of the day, starting each day with a different letter. Have your child write the word and look for things in your home that begin with the same letter.
  • Look for word problems in real life. For example, if you use five eggs to make breakfast, close the egg carton and ask your child, "How many eggs are left?"
  • Try using "we" frequently in conversation, helping kids learn family rules and your family’s culture. This can help give kids a sense of security and belonging, and it can help them understand your family's rules and values.
