Word Lists

Word Lists

Get silly and help your child learn new words! Movement can be an effective learning strategy. So, ask your child to come up with a dance move that represents a new vocabulary word. Then, imitate their move. Follow up by asking them to come up with a dance move that represents the antonym of the word.
Make word study fun with games and movement activities! Play matching games or 'around the world' with cards that list synonyms or antonyms. Or, get students moving with 'charades': have small groups create movements, gestures, or pantomimes to represent new words. Games and movement are effective cognitive strategies to improve memory and increase interest.

Area, Perimeter, Complex Area, & Volume

Area, Perimeter, Complex Area, & Volume

Use a measuring tape to find the length and width of rectangle in your home, like a picture frame or small room. Round to the nearest whole number and ask your child to find the area of the rectangle. When children have opportunities for real world application, they are more likely to understand the underlying mathematical concepts.
Try using a hands-on approach when teaching area and perimeter! Use masking tape to make large rectangles on the floor all around the classroom. Give your students yard sticks and notebooks and tell them to find the area and perimeter of the rectangles. Use whole number sides to make this task approachable for all students.

Prepositions & Analyzing Point of View

Prepositions & Analyzing Point of View

Remind your child that both fiction and non fiction texts contain a point of view. As an example, choose a current event that your child is familiar with. Search on the internet to find articles from various different sources about the same event. Read the articles together and discuss the differences in point of view. Reading articles from different countries can provide an especially strong example for this activity.
Give your students a chance to discuss author's point of view by comparing two texts on the same topic. For example, you might introduce opposing points of view about a historical event. Then, ask students to identify the author's point of view in each text. Use a Venn Diagram or top hat organizer to compare the differences in point of view.

Argument Writing: Counterargument & Conclusions

Challenge your child to think beyond her own perspective. When she makes an argument, ask her to consider what someone might say if they disagreed with her. Thinking about alternative points of view will help your child sharpen her argument writing skills.
Provide opportunities for your students to read examples of strong arguments. When students have exposure to multiple examples, they will begin to recognize patterns that they can use in their own writing. Ask students to identify the various parts of the arguments they read, including the claim, evidence, and counter argument.
