Possessive Nouns & Homographs

Possessive Nouns & Homographs

Homophones and homographs can be really tricky for kids! Help your child learn the difference between these types of words so that he has a better understanding of word meaning and word relationships. Homophones are words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings. An example of a set of homophones is brake and break. Homographs, on the other hand, are spelled the same and are sometimes pronounced the same, but have different meanings. An example of a set of homographs is wind and wind. For fun, see how many words you and your child can think of and make two different lists!
Students build strong vocabularies when they understand word meanings and word relationships. It is important to clarify the difference between homophones and homographs for your students. Homophones are words that sound the same, but have different spellings and meanings, such as break and brake. Homographs are words that are spelled the same and are sometimes pronounced the same, but have different meanings, such as wind and wind. Teach your students to use the context in the sentence to figure out which word is being used. This will boost your students' grasp on these tricky words and how to use them correctly!

The Meaning of Division & Multiplying and Dividing by 2

The Meaning of Division & Multiplying and Dividing by 2

Your child may be intimidated by division, but it's not as scary as it seems! Help your child see the relationship between division and multiplication. Practice with fact families, and discuss that there are multiplication problems that can make basic division problems easier. Continue to practice fact fluency because your child still needs to be quick on his feet with those facts!
The concept of division can be intimidating for some students, but helping them to understand that it is directly connected to multiplication should ease their minds. Teach your students to use the inverse operation if they are struggling with basic division. For example, 8 divided by 4 can be related to a multiplication problem: 4 times what number equals 8. If your students are fluent with multiplication facts, this should translate as they become more comfortable with the concept of division.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary

Your child is constantly coming across new words as he reads, and with that comes a chance to broaden his vocabulary! Help your child make these new words part of his vocabulary by helping him keep a notebook or a personal dictionary. If he records, defines, and uses the words, they will have a more permanent place in his vocabulary.
With each new piece of text, your students have the opportunity to learn new words! This is so powerful, as long as you give them the tools to learn the words, their meanings, and how to use them correctly. It's important to provide word gathering strategies for the upper grades, too, so the students continue to grow their vocabulary. Consider using graphic organizers and notebooks to support your students as they grow strong vocabularies.
