Help Your Child at Home

  • Discuss your family's history and stories. Brainstorm ways to use technology to capture the story effectively, and help your child create a presentation, song, poem, or essay that expresses the story's tone and main ideas.
  • Do simple math to accomplish a task: If you're building a box, how much wood will you need for the sides? Measure the length, width, and height of the box. How would you figure out the volume of water it would hold?
  • Start to talk with your child about bullying, including cyberbullying. Even though social media may be years away, plant the seeds now for helping kids understand appropriate interactions, and let kids know they can talk to you about it.
