    How can you help your child with his/her math skills?
     
    Practice adding by using manipulatives (Legos, dry pasta, Barbie shoes, dry kidney beans). Roll a die, write that number down, show that number with the manipulatives, roll the die again and repeat. Then add the numbers together. To make it more challenging, add three numbers instead of two.

    How can I help my child in Language Arts?
     
    Read each night from the book bag that is sent home, and talk about the story content. Make connections from the book to real life. Read any chance you get - in the grocery store, street signs, in your pantry. Hang the words to know and spelling words around the house so that they're always available to read, put the closed captioning on the television so they are seeing what the characters are saying.
