What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

It is to be commended that you wish to work with your brother to help him get a great start to his academic learning.  Consider making literacy and math fun by using games to help him learn these fundamentals.

Board games that use basic counting, such as Candyland or words matching can be fun and beneficial. Also, art projects can help a child who may have difficulty with concepts grasp them through hands on fun!

Good luck!!
