  • Reading at home: All students should read or be read to 15-30 minutes daily. Families are encouraged to discuss what is illustrated on the pages, what is happening in the story, and what your child thinks is going to happen
    next or what they have learned. Also, ask your child how they would change the story.
  • Writing at home: Practice, practice, practice! Writing takes practice! At-home writing might include e-mails, thank-you notes, scrapbook descriptions, diaries and journal entries, grocery lists and what's-for-dinner notes.
  • Math at home: Play board games or do puzzles. In the kitchen – cook up some math! Measure all of the ingredients (especially the liquids in the glass
    measuring cups). Challenge yourself to double the recipe or cut the recipe in half – fractions are
    everywhere! Taking the time to cook a new meal not only gives you a sense of accomplishment but
    also taps into the creative side of the brain.
  • Physical Activity: Get outdoors to run, play games or walk. Physical activity can strengthen bones, increase muscle strength, improve balance, reduce body fat, and improve mood.
  • The Arts: Paint, draw, or color. Play a musical instrument or listen to music. Music can improve memory and develops better academic performance and language ability.
