We are starting to wind down our school year and together with your help I want to make sure all of the students are prepared for first grade.

Here are some helpful hints to help your child be ready.

  1. Let your child read everything and anything that he or she can. Making sure to get books that challenge them and some that are easy so that they do not get frustrated. Raz-kids can help.
  2. Count by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s to 100.
  3. Have them write about their favorite thing (what they did or watched or are going to do) DO NOT SPELL THE WORDS FOR THEM!! It is very important that they learn to sound out words.
  4. Review the sight words that I have been sending home for homework and include: the; and; I; going; Jack; Annie.
  5. Do simple addition and subtraction problems. (3+2=5 or 6-4=2).
  6. As always have them tell you what they did at school, what they learned.

All of these things will help your child succeeded not only in my class, but in first grade as well.
