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.

  • Read together on a daily basis and ask questions about the book. Discuss story elements such as the characters, setting, plot, and summarize the story.
  • Think back to your first day of school this year, write a reflection essay about how you felt that day.
  • Write a letter to your teacher describing your favorite things about their class and your least favorite things about their class. After you complete your letter, re-read your letter looking for edits that can be made.
  • After reading a text, based on everything you know, what do you predict will happen next?
  • Think about a lesson you learned from a show, a movie, or book you have read. Write about what lesson was learned, how it affected the character, and how it affects you.
  • After reading a text, decide who of the characters you would want as a friend. Discuss or write about why you would want them as your friend.
  • Reflect on a story read or heard. Think about how the text might change if the main character were a different age or gender.
  • Read your favorite book or watch your favorite movie. How might the story change if the main character had made a different decision.
  • Reflect on a book read or heard, act out the events of the story in sequential order.
  • Think about all of the people you have learned about. If you could switch places with one of these people who would you choose, and why?
