Parents...A Child's First Teacher
Children learn new things every day in the school environment. As a parent, it can be a bit confusing knowing just what skills to emphasize when you are reviewing at home.
Remember that reading to and with your child every evening is very important. If you read just 30 minutes together each night, your child will benefit greatly from the activity.
Practicing practical math skills such as identifying numbers, counting objects, making change to understand the value of money, and measuring with rulers as well as using scales to weigh objects is always a good choice.
Learning can be reinforced in the home environment without turning into a chore. Here are some practical suggestions for helping your child increase their skills and knowledge.
