How can I help my child at home?
Reading to your child is the single most important thing to do to support a child’s learning at home. Establish a regular reading time of 15 minutes for reading or looking at picture books for the whole family. Try to eliminate all distractions, including electronic devices. When at the grocery store or at a restaurant, point out the letter and words you see to model that print has meaning.
Ask your child to help make shopping lists or write letters to friends or family members. Encourage your child to share about his/her drawings while you write down the words he/she says. Each stroke has meaning to a child whether or not it looks like conventional writing. Learning to write is established through developmental phases. The most important thing to do at home is to recognize that a child is a writer, no matter where they are in the process.
Count with your child; count steps, cars, buildings, shopping carts, or any object. Start to recognize patterns in the environment; spaces and lines in a parking lot, or rungs on the playground ladder. Have them point out shapes.
Have them recognize patterns of change; weather changes, flowers blooming. Help them discover their environment and name the things they see in nature.
Establish routines to make bedtime and mealtime easier. Keep consistency with what these routines are.
When a child is aware of their feelings and feels confident, they are more likely to empathize with others and make friends. Establish a times where your child can interact with other children on a regular basis; public library story times and community parks can be great places to learn how to be a friend.
