Help Your Child at Home

  • As school gets harder, help your child get into a homework routine. Set aside time each day, in the same place, at the same time, for kids to do homework and to start developing organizational skills.
  • Talk about age-appropriate news. Encourage your child to point out main and supporting ideas in a news story, and encourage him or her to come up with synonyms and antonyms for key words.
  • Cook with your child to help him or her develop an understanding of fractions. Experiment with volume: Show that one third is more than one quarter but less than one half.
