  • Multiplication/Division Mastery

    It is important for children to know as many table facts as possible off by heart. There are many ways of learning tables and your child will respond to different strategies such as singing, reciting, writing, playing games, making up rhymes and many more. Most important is to make it fun and do a little often. Don’t worry if your child appears to be struggling to learn their tables. There are many strategies you can try to help them. Most of all be supportive and make it a fun activity.

  • Setting your child up for reading success!

    Work with your child at home on their sight words! The development of sight word recognition continues to be a top priority when instructing emerging and beginning readers. What Are Sight Words? Sight Words (high-frequency, core words) are the words that are used most often in reading and writing. Why Are Sight Words Important? Sight words are very important for your child to master because “sight words account for up to 75% of the words used in beginning printed children’s materials”, (Study to Identify High Frequency Word in Printed Materials, by DJ Kear & MA Gladheart). There are different sight words for every grade level. Each set of words builds upon the other, meaning that once your child learns the Sight Words in Kindergarten, he will be expected to still recognize those words as he learns new words in first grade, and so forth. Many of the over 200 Sight Words do not follow the basic principles, thus they cannot be “sounded out”. Beginning readers need an effective strategy for decoding unknown words, and knowing sight words is an effective method.
