    Dear Parents, 

    Please review these skills with your child. 

    Recognizing Letters A-Z, both Uppercase and Lowercase 

    Visit the website "Have fun teaching A-Z" to see and hear examples of the alphabet. Have your child say the alphabet as well as sound it out. Ask them to look for objects around them that contain that letter; books, billboards, etc.

    Recognizing numbers 0-20 and counting objects up to that number 

    How high can your child count? Have them begin at 0 and challenge them too count as high as they can.


    Cirlce, star, diamond, triangle, square, rectangle, oval.

    Writing their First and Last Name 

    You may write it for them and let them independently copy/write it. You may also cute the letters of their name out and allow them to spell their name out.

    Read for 10 minutes each night 

    Create a reading log. Have your child show you the front and back cover of the book, the title of the book, and the first word you read on the page (body of the book). In class we discuss how you read left to right and top to bottom. When reading, stop and allow your child to make predictions about what will happen next in the story. When done, have them summarize the story back to you or what they can remember from the story.


    Red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple, pink, gray, black, brown, and pink. Look around your house, in magazines, at the store, or on a road trip and ask your child to point out the given color. 

    Sight Words 

    A, and, at, can, down, go, had, have, he, I, in, is, on, she, see, up, was, the, with, you. Write these down on a paper or flashcards and have your child read them to you.

    Compound Words 

    Take two words and put them together to make a new word. For example: "foot" and "ball" would create the compound word "football".

    Rhyming Words 

    Give your child a word and let them tell you other words that rhyme with it. For example: at, bat, cat; rake, bake, cake.


    Give your child a word and have them tell you the number of syllables in that word. For example: "computer". Computer has three syllables.


    Thank You For Working with your child on these items!
