I am so excited to be in the Primary Behavior Support Program Classroom.
For students that are struggling in reading, especially those that are 2 or more years behind in their reading skills I strongly, strongly, recommend you read to your child books that are at or above (but appropriate to their age) their GRADE level. As you read, discuss the story, what's happening, what your thoughts are, and above all, just share the love of reading and sharing stories. There are many reason I recommend this, but the top ones are as follows:
For those who struggle in math. Play as many games as you can think of that will eventually require math. My family plays a game called 9-hole, or sometimes golf, with two sets of cards. We have spent countless hours playing, it involves simple math, a small amount of stratagey, but mostly luck!
