If you feel that your child would benefit from extra practice at home,
here are some suggestions:
1) Reread the stories that we are working on in class together. You can access the reading book through Think Central. See the Language Arts page for directions and a direct link.
2) Also through thinkcentral, you can access the Phonics Practice Book, Extra Support Book, and Strategic Intervention Interactive Readers (stories). These are extra pieces that are not generally used in the classroom. You can use them with your child at home for extra support if you feel your child needs some extra help or practice.
3) For spelling, use the links have provided to Spelling City (on the Spelling page to go directly to the lists). The kids generally like playing the games to practice their spelling words.
4) Visit English Maven for free online reading comprehension practice. Your child can read stories online, and then answer questions about the story.
5) Visit Storyline Online to have stories read to your child by famous actors. This is just a fun way to keep reading interesting! If you have younger children, they will probably love this site, too!
6) Review the Practice Book and Grammar Book pages with your child weekly to help them see the mistakes they are making. Sometimes kids don't ask me when they have questions. Encourage them to tell me if they are having trouble. If they won't, please feel free to send me an email or call me. Remember, we are a team working for the same goal- your child's success!
