  • Best ways to prepare your child for second grade

    Hey Parents!

    One of the best ways to prepare your child for second grade is to READ, READ, READ.  You can read to them or with them. When you're finished a book or chapter, ask them questions about what they read. You can even have them answer these question stems by writing the answers.

    Another way to help strengthen your child's writing before coming to second grade is to keep a journal. Encourage your child to write about what they do each day.
