Supporting learning at home
Home learning ideas:
Check out our Mangapapa Learning Hub Facebook page, which has great ideas for supporting learning at home.
Please feel free to speak to your child's teacher around ways that you can support your child's learning at home. They will be only to happy to offer suggestions/ideas/support.
One fantastic way that you can support reading learning at home is by reading to your child. Regardless of their age, or ability to read independently, sharing a story with your children is not only a special time, but it also allows them to enjoy reading, discuss the characters, plot and messages, see you as a reader, explore texts or ideas that might be beyond their 'decoding' ability.
Remember that reading can be reading; books, comics, magazines, newspapers, recipe books, instructions, rules for games, poems, signs, etc, etc.
There are lots of ways that you can encourage your child to write at home. Write lists, letters to whanau or friends living out of town, keep a diary, etc, etc. [The websites below have lots of other great ideas at your child's level, so check them out!]
Our Mangapapa Readers and Writers Facebook page also has lots of great ideas for supporting literacy learning at home.
