Challenge your child to list words that have specific prefixes and to determine their meaning. Your young learner will feel empowered as they are able to figure out the meaning of words simply by knowing the meaning of the prefix.

Author's Purpose

Author's Purpose

P-I-E. Persuade, Inform, or Entertain. These are the three main reasons an author writes a text. Ask your student about author's purpose as he reads short and long text. This will challenge them to think beyond the text.
To build strong readers, teach them to think beyond the text about the author's intentions. Authors write to persuade, inform, and entertain. Be sure to teach your students the key words and clues of each type of writing.

Creative Writing

Creative Writing

Telling a story from another point of view is a challenging and fun spin on things. Help your child pretend to be another character or object in the story. Challenge them to tell the story from that point of view. Be sure to discuss how the story changed when it was told from a different point of view.
There are many ways to approach create writing. One way is to get your students to think about the main and supporting characters. Another is to challenge your students to think about the story from other points of view. For a fun and interesting writing exercise, choose a picture book that you have read to the class. Give students the opportunity to choose a character from the book and tell the story from that character's point of view. Allow your students to share and offer each other feedback.
