3. Post Word of the Day
Choose a word of the day and post it in a visible spot (perhaps near the calendar). Aim to use the word in a sentence at least three times that day. (If a word a day seems too daunting, begin with a word per week.) Remember to be encouraging so that your child will want
to use the word and feel proud of their expanding vocabulary. Refer to this website
, which provides a word per day according to grade level.
4. Play Games
Learning should be fun! Playing games (both online and off) is a great way to reinforce this notion. Two sites that we love are: PBS Kids Play and FunBrain.
PBS Kids Play • This is an interactive online world, with a large number of games to help your child hone their math, science, reading skills and beyond. Favorites include: Alphabet Soup and the Rock and Read Jukebox.
FunBrain • Touted as the #1 site for online educational games, this site has an endless number of activities, which are sorted by grade level. Favorites include: Math Baseball, Grammar Gorillas, and Fresh Baked Fractions.
Don’t forget about good old-fashioned board games too! Monopoly for math, Scrabble for spelling, chess for strategy and patience…
