WAYS TO HELP AT HOME! :)
Please do as many of these at home as your are able. We appreciate any support and extra practice you are able to give your child! You do not have to return any of the work. These ideas are just for extra practice and as a way to communicate with you what we are working on at school.
- Help your child read and write sight words
-Listen to your child read the books from his/her reading at home baggie & read to them!
-Have your child do daily jobs at home
-Have your child practice tying his/her shoes
-Be sure your child gets plenty of sleep!
