Help Your Child at Home

  • Have your child practice writing through a real-world task, such as writing a thank-you note for a gift or writing a letter to family members or friends.
  • When saving money for a new purchase, have your child compare how much you have already with the total cost of the item. How much more money do you need?
  • Try something new with your child, such as a game or sport. Show him or her the importance of perseverance by offering praise for effort, not outcome.
