HOW TO HELP AT HOME:
Give your child time to read, every night. Make sure to ask them questions about what they are reading. What is the main character thinking? Rather than monitoring time (suggest 20 minutes), trying having your child read 1-2 chapters a day.
PRACTICE MATH FACTS! Practice is VERY important! Multiplication! From time to time I will send home a game idea. Playing these are home can be helpful to our work in class.
TYPING: It is VERY important that you practice typing at home. ALL State Tests (starting in 3rd grade) will have typing. They can write a sentence each day. Focus on punctuation; spell check and punctuation help will be removed from tests. In other words; no red, green or blue lines underneath words.
