- Read daily for at least 20 minutes and talk to your family about the book you have read.
- Share the exciting parts or tell your family who the main person was in the story and what did he/she did.
- If it was a non-fiction book, tell your family something new you learned.
- After your child has completed his/her homework, please sit with your child and go over the homework. This will ensure that the homework is completed and families will know if their child is having difficulty in a subject area and can contact the classroom teacher.
