I spy the letter B
Use the contents of your kitchen cabinets to help build your child’s reading observation skills. Ask her to look for letters of the alphabet or words on boxes or cans of food. For example, as your child is eating cereal, ask her to show you five A’s on the box. Start with capital letters then move to lowercase letters. How many cans contain items beginning with B?

Check study conditions before a test
Does your child have a test coming up? Chances are the teacher won’t have music playing or a TV on during the test. So don’t allow your child to study with such distractions, either. The test will probably be timed, so your child could try taking a practice test using a kitchen timer.
