Bedside Five

I would like to encourage you to spend 5 minutes reviewing your letters, numbers, sounds, and words with your child immediately prior to putting your child to bed. This should only take about 5 minutes. Doing this will help your child roll the information over from their short term memory to their long term memory. Just a bit of trivia.... it takes 3 days for information to go from your short term memory to your long term memory. The goal is for your child to learn while they sleep! THIS WILL HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT ON YOUR CHILD'S LEARNING!! :)
