Dictionary Skills

Children will often have trouble finding a word in the dictionary because they are looking up a word with its inflectional ending, not the base word itself. Teach your child to break down words that have inflectional endings; once they identify the base word, they can look it up in the dictionary. This process can help avoid unnecessary frustration!

Polygons

Polygons

As your child dives into the world of geometry, be sure to teach them about the characteristics unique to each shape. Share images of the different polygons. The more exposure your child has to them, the better they will be at identifying them. Tangram activities offer hands-on practice in working with polygons.
