Reading | Math




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 a text from the Wonders literature book or any other fiction text (if you do not have one available, watch a television show). Then, write to a friend telling them what it was about.
  • Pick a character you read about and select four adjectives that describe the character and how each adjective applies. Fold a paper to make four squares to include text evidence for each adjective you chose.
  • Keep a journal or diary of all the text read or heard. Include within the entry a brief summary of the text, personal connections made, or connections made to other texts. Draw an illustration to support the text.
  • Write a biography of a character, a person, or a family member who you find interesting or unique. Afterwards, you can make a timeline to show important events.
  • Discuss with a family member or write about how a story of your choosing might change if the main character had made a different decision.
  • Pick the most important line from a text, write about why that particular line is important. Justify your selection with evidence from the text.
  • 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.
  • Read an article from a newspaper or magazine, write a short jot as to why the article interests you, what you learned from the article and what the author’s purpose was for writing that article.
  • Use a journal, old notebook, or anything else you can write on. Explore your backyard or an indoor room and write what you observe using as many sensory details that you can include.
  • Essay Prompt: Think about all of the helpful community members around you. Choose one community member and explain why their occupation is important.
