Helpful Hints To Practice Reading At Home
- Don’t leave home without it – Bring along a book or magazine any time your child has to wait, such as at a doctor’s office. Always try to fit in reading!
- Once is not enough – Encourage your child to re-read favorite books and poems. Re-reading helps kids read more quickly and accurately.
- Dig deeper into the story – Ask your child questions about the story you’ve just read. Say something like, “Why do you think Clifford did that?”
- Take control of the television – It’s difficult for reading to compete with TV and video games. Encourage reading as a free-time activity.
- Be patient – When your child is trying to sound out an unfamiliar word, give him or her time to do so. Remind to child to look closely at the first letter or letters of the word.
- Pick books that are at the right level – Help your child pick books that are not too difficult. The aim is to give your child lots of successful reading experiences.
- Play word games – Have your child sound out the word as you change it from mat to fat to sat; from sat to sag to sap; and from sap to sip.
- I read to you, you read to me – Take turns reading aloud at bedtime. Kids enjoy this special time with their parents.
- Gently correct your young reader – When your child makes a mistake, gently point out the letters he or she overlooked or read incorrectly. Many beginning readers will guess wildly at a word based on its first letter.
- Talk, talk, talk! – Talk with your child every day about school and things going on around the house. Sprinkle some interesting words into the conversation, and build on words you’ve talked about in the past.

Helpful Hints To Practice Math At Home
HOME is where the MATH is.
Explore math in everyday life — counting out forks to set the table, pouring from a gallon of milk, telling the time when his favorite TV program begins. When kids realize that math is all around them, they begin to relax and see its meaning in their lives.
Encourage your child to explain his problem-solving process so you can understand his reasoning.
Incorporate games involving numbers and math into playtime — from flash cards for learning basic math facts to board games involving money, time, and logic.
