Activities To Help Your Child Excel in School
* Read daily - a book, the cereal box, the sports page, a magazine, anything that will get your mind turning and thinking.
* Have an adult read to you daily from a novel above your reading level. Studies show that having an adult or older sibling read to a child is more beneficial to learning to read than reading silently.
* Spend less time playing with electronic devices, especially close to bedtime. Screen time delays the production of melatonin, which helps us fall to sleep at night.
* Write some fun, creative stories and then read them to someone. Type them up on the computer to practice your keyboarding skills. Share them with Ms. D. so she can enjoy them too.
* Practice skip-counting and the addition and subtraction facts. Get your blood pumping by skipping rope while you are reciting them.
