    Clarifications for Pre-K Learning
    If you miss a day or few of school, here are some generic tips for helping your
    child continue learning anytime :)

    Reading

    ✔ Read with your children at least twice daily.
    ✔ When children are on their own, encourage them to read
    books by looking at the pictures & creating their own words to
    the story.

    Writing & Drawing
    ✔ Encourage them to make marks on paper & try to write their
    name on each drawing to practice. They may scribble or write
    strings of letters.
    ✔ Ask your child to tell you what they drew; as they dictate, an
    adult should write down their words.
    ✔ Use capital letters when writing with preschoolers

    Language
    ➔ Encourage speaking in full sentences.
    ➔ Work on the skill of retelling! Choose a story, read it many
    times, and have your child retell it by talking to you, a sibling, their pet, or calling a relative over the phone 

    Five Frame
    ✔ Do not write in the frame. Boxes are to put objects for
    counting.

    ✔ Small object examples: buttons, beads, paper clips, rocks,
    seeds
