Homework- I highly encourage my students to practice their Math facts at least 15 minutes, (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), each day with the use of flashcards, math programs such as; Xtramath, write them out on paper...whatever suits your child.
Reading It is important for you to read to your child as often as possible. Expose them to different types of reading; magazines, textbooks, menus, newspapers, joke books, etc. For most children in this age group 20 to 30 minutes is a good time frame, you can split the time between you and your young reader. Your child needs to hear what fluent reading sounds like from an experienced reader, like a guardian or older sibling. You can take turns allowing your child to take over more of the reading as they progress and feel more confident throughout the year.
