Measurement

Measurement is an important life skill; teach your child the basics with real-life practice. Allow your child to measure personal items, then move on to larger spaces like a room or hallway at home. Encourage your child as they learn the different units of measurement — hands-on experience will help reinforce the difference between an inch, a foot, and a mile.

Predicting

Predicting

Making predictions is a reading comprehension skill taught early on, but one that often falls by the wayside by the third grade. And yet it remains a key component of active reading. As your child reads, ask them what they think will happen next. What details in the text helped them make that prediction? Challenge your child by asking, How do the events in one text connect to those in another? Get your child in the habit of predicting, making connections, and thinking critically about the stories they read.
