Tackle Textbooks
       When your child has a chapter to study, have then “preview” it to increase
their understanding. She should glance over headings, graphics, and photos and go
to the glossary to look up boldfaced words.

Don’t Fix Every Mistake
      Oh, no! Your child forgot to take their math homework to school-again!
Resist the urge to get in the car and dash to the school. Let your child learn from
her mistakes. The consequences of their actions will help them learn to be more
responsible next time.

                                                                  Recipes for Success
      Start with a short sentence, such as “I went to the store.” Toss a ball back
and forth with you child. With each toss, change one word of the sentence without
changing its meaning (“I jumped rope to the store”). See how long you can keep
going without getting stuck.
