    Clarifications for K/1 Learning

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


        • 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.



    • Encourage them to write their name on every paper.


        • Ask your child to tell you what they drew; ask them to try to write down the sounds they hear in the words (1st graders- writing sentences for their pictures)
        • Encourage them to write in lowercase letters (other than first letter in names)


    • Encourage speaking in full sentences and explain their thinking
    • Work on the skill of retelling! Choose a story, read it many times, and have your child retell the beginning, middle, and end by talking to you, a sibling, their pet, calling a relative over the phone, or drawing pictures. 


    • Do not write in the frame. Boxes are to put objects for counting. 


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


        • Practice counting objects around the house
        • Practice orally counting up to 100!
