guide your child to ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
guide your child to identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.
guide your child to describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text.
* Work on the formation of upper and lower case letters
*Work on sounding out and writing the letter that matches the sound to make words
* Work on leaving finger space between to words
A good way to start these is to work on your child's first and last name: teach each letter name , sound, correct way to make the letter and start using lower case. Make this fun, use play dough, shaving cream, a paintbrush and water, but model first!
Start small and add on!
