How Can I Help My Child???

1. Make sure your child is reading DAILY!!!  This is the single-most important thing to help your child become a better reader.  I know schedules keep us busy, but even having your child read for 10-15 minutes each day is beneficial.  Make your child stick to the same book (preferably a chapter book) until he/she finishes it.  Talk about the book together. 

2. Make sure your child is doing his/her homework EVERY night.  This includes nightly reading, math, spelling (practice words daily; quiz each Wednesday), and studying science & social studies vocabulary.

3.  Encourage your child to read EVERYTHING to you.  Make him/her do the work.  Have your child practice math in daily situations (grocery store math, elapsed time, fractions in cooking, etc.).

4.  Use web resources to practice and reinforce skills that have been taught.  (Especially as the EOG tests are approaching!) By 5th grade, students should know basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts, and be able to recall them quickly. 

5.  Have your child review his/her notes from reading, science, social studies, and math classes.  Remember EOGs and Final Exams are cumulative and include all topics/skills taught during the year!
