Working at home with your Preschooler
It is imperative to your preschooler’s academic growth for you to be working with them on preschool skills at home. They need consistency between school and home. They need to regularly practice their skills to master them and be able to move on to new skills.
Support your child by reading to them EVERYDAY. It is not just a saying, reading daily does make you smarter! Also, correct their speech, if they mispronounce a word correct them, don’t allow them to believe it is cute, it will eventually become an issue, correct it while you can.
Talk,Talk,Talk to your child. Repeat what they say to you, talk all day long to them. The more you talk the more they talk. If you have nothing to say, turn on music and sing with them.
If you don’t know what your child needs to be working on at home, please ask a teacher. We know and would be happy to email you a personalized list of items your child needs to practice.
Continue to stay involve, ask questions, we like questions! It is important for you to understand where your child is at academically so you can continue to support and advocate for them. Don’t assume they know something. You may be surprised to find out what they do and do not know.
We are here for you! Thank you for your dedication to your preschooler!
