Tips for Parents
Ways to help your child with reading

  • Provide many opportunities for your child to read books or others materials. Children learn to read best when they have books and other reading materials at home.
  • Read aloud to your child. Research show that this is the most important activity that parents can do to increase their child's chance of reading success. Keep reading aloud even when your child can read independently.
  • Make time for the library.
  • Play games that involve reading.
  • Follow your child's interest-find books that tie into their interest.
  • Work crossword puzzles with your child.
  • Give a magazine subscription for a gift.


Ways to help your child with math

  • Spend time with kids on simple board games, puzzles, and activities that encourage better attitudes and stronger math skills.
  • Encourage your child to solve problems on their own first. Then you can provide assistance in solving the problem with your child.
  • Point out ways that people use math every day to pay bills, balance their checkbooks, figure out their net earnings, make change. 
    Involve older children in projects that incorporate geometric and algebraic concepts such as planting a garden, building a bookshelf, or figuring how long it will take to drive to your family vacation destination.
  • Children should learn to read and interpret charts and graphs such as those found in daily newspapers. Collecting and analyzing data will help your child draw conclusions and become discriminating readers of math information.
