At Home Ways to Help Your Kindergartner:
Read to your child and have them read to you, ask them questions about the story elements: characters, plot, setting, genre; have them make predictions, make real life connections to the text, help them notice text and graphic features (talk about how the pictures go with the words)
Check your student's folder: go over their work with them to discuss what they've been learning especially anything they were having trouble with, read our weekly story together, practice ice cream word list, and practice handwriting with first and last names, upper and lowercase letters, words, and sentences.
Encourage your child to write about pictures they've drawn or colored by phonetic spelling (sounding it out what they want to say and writing the letters for the sounds they hear)
Play bingo, memory/match/concentration/ with sight words/letters
Play "I Spy" by having the child practice identifying and producing letter sounds/naming something that starts with a chosen letter or spying words
Play "Mystery Word" by saying sounds in a word and having child blend to name the word for example /c/-/a/-/t/=cat or /c/-/at/=cat
Play board games especially those with dice or number cards to reinforce counting and number sense
Do Kids workbook practice/word searches together (The Dollar Tree or The Dollar General Store usually have good ones for cheap) or Highlights magazines
