READING AND WRITING (30 MINUTES)

Use the following activities to engage your child in learning. Find a quiet place and set up a daily schedule for learning. Have as much fun as possible.

  • Encourage your child to read entertaining books, newspapers, and magazine articles
  • After reading a fiction book create a story map including characters, setting, problem/plot and solution/resolution. Think about the character’s actions, how the characters change throughout the story, their goal and or desire and how the character solved their problem.
  • Make connections with a book. Think about what you already know related to the book or what the book reminds you of. Share your thinking with someone then write your thoughts down on paper.
  • Think about the author’s purpose for writing the book. “What were the author’s feelings about the character or topic? How do you know? What was the author’s intended purpose? How do you know? What information did the author want me to gain while reading the text?” Share your thinking with someone then write your thoughts down on paper.
  • Use a story you read about or know about and write a different ending. You can include dialogue to make the characters come to life, or you can draw a comic strip to show the new ending.
  • Think about the central idea of the informational text. Write down the central idea and the details that support the central idea.
  • Locate all the text features within the text. Ask yourself, “Why did the author choose to use these text features? How do these features support me in understanding the text?”
  • Journal daily about your daily learning or activities you did throughout the day. What did you enjoy the most about your day? Why did you enjoy this moment? What did you learn?
