Synonyms

Be sure to utilize synonyms and antonyms as you support your child's vocabulary growth. While the terms can be confusing, teach a fun trick to keep them straight! The word "synonym" starts with the letter "s." Synonyms have the same word meaning, so simply remember "synonym, same." If your child can remember that, it will be clear that the antonyms are the opposite word meanings.
When we make connections between words and their synonyms and antonyms in context, we build a strong vocabulary. Support your students as they build their vocabulary with synonyms and antonyms! Many students confuse the terms, though, so be sure to teach them a fun trick to help keep it clear. Tell your students to remember that synonym starts with the letter "s" and so does the word "same." Think "synonym, same." If they can remember that, they can remember that antonym means opposite.

Multiplication and Area & Multiplying and Dividing with 4

Multiplication and Area & Multiplying and Dividing with 4

Area might be an overwhelming concept for your child, but you can support him as he builds a foundational understanding. At the very basic level, your child will learn to count the unit squares inside a shape. Using graph paper provides a perfect visual for your child before moving to the formula of Length x Width. Practice finding area on the graph paper to support your child as he makes the connection between counting unit squares and using multiplication to find the area of shapes.
As your students become more fluent with geometry, it is important to build their foundational understanding of the concepts, such as area. Give your students the opportunity to grapple with finding area by covering the basics. Have your students count the unit squares before teaching the formula for area. As you make the connection between unit squares and the formula, give them the opportunity to find area in real-world contexts. When they feel confident in understanding the basics, area will be a fun geometry activity for them!

Creating an Informative Picture Book

Creating an Informative Picture Book

A key component of good writing is organization. An organized writer uses a sequence that makes it easy to follow the story or informative text. Guide your child on his journey to become a strong writer by giving him activities that help him master the skill of sequence! Give your child graphic organizers to plan out a story before entering the draft stage of the writing process. Have your child make an informative picture book about how to do a chore or hobby. These tasks will challenge your child to use a solid sequence that makes the writing cohesive.
Sequence is a critical component of strong writing, regardless of genre! To support your students as they master the skill of writing with sequence, give them fun tasks. Have your students create informative picture books for the classroom, their families, or their book buddies in a younger grade. Offer your students graphic organizers to encourage the process of planning and getting organized before entering the next stage of the writing process.
