  • Create a reading log at home, writing down books that your child has read to you and you have read to them.
  • Play board games at home with your child (Sorry, Uno, etc.)
  • Use dice and the attached page to play some fun number games with your child.
  • Review sight words.  You can also have your child find sight words in magazines, books and in other forms of print. Sight word lists can be found in the files and documents tab on the website.
