    Here are some things you can do in order to help your child prepare for second grade:

     

    • Teach your child to tie their shoes. Find a fun trick! Watch a video! Give an incentive! Be persistent!

     

    • Keep bedtime in the routine. It may be a little later and there will be nights that bedtime doesn’t apply. But overall, if we keep our bodies in a routine with sleep, September won’t hit quite so hard!

     

    • Choose a few family members and friends to write a letter to this summer. Ask your child to write in full sentences, ask questions and give details. Writing with a purpose makes it relevant and real for your child. Maybe someone will write them back! Include an envelope with return address and stamp to encourage that!

     

    • Encourage kindness. Find something that your child can do to bring a smile to someone’s face.  Deliver cookies, make a card, do chores, sing a song...something simply for a smile.

     

    • Read TO your child. We can’t encourage reading enough! Please visit the library and make books apart of your summer days. Most importantly, let your child see you read - to yourself and to them. Let them hear your silly voice. Let them tell you the best parts and predict how it will end.
