Along with math, English is the other fundamental language that makes all other learning possible. Here are a few tips to make sure your child is getting the most out of their English education, broken down by grade level:
Elementary school children should be reading and writing for at least an hour each, every day. For the majority of elementary level students, the key to reading and writing development is time on task. Consistency is key. It’s also important to make sure your child’s reading material is at the right level. Too easy and the student won’t progress. Too hard and you can turn your child off to reading.
Middle to High School
Make sure your child is reading at least 30 minutes a day. Consider making it a family event, where at the end of each session, each family member takes a couple of minutes to share what they are reading while other family members ask questions. We also recommend setting aside time for weekly writing prompts based on your child's interests. Encourage creativity as well as spelling and good grammar.
