    Reading every day helps.  This could be you reading to your child, them reading to you, or both.  Below are some websites that have some books online for your child.  

    Story Line Online  - Here are some of your favorite stories read by famous movie stars. 

    Starfall - Practice your phonics skills with these read-along stories


    1. Count up and back to a target number.  (not necessarily starting at 1 or ending at 100) Example: Let's count back from 55 to 30. 

    2. Mystery number is a fun game to support number sense,  Using a 120 chart (linked below), think of one of the numbers on the chart.  Have your child try to guess the mystery number.  Each time your child takes a guess use math talk. (less that or greater than) until your child has discovered your mystery number.  Then switch roles. 

    Below is the 120 chart and some websited you can visit to work on math. 

    3. Math Stories: Make up math stories with your child using objects such as small toys.  Chose a range of numbers that allow your child to be stretched but yet still successful.  "I have 3 toy cars. I find 7 more toy cars. How many toy cars do I have now?" 

    4. Play Make a Ten game. Take out ten items. (beans, spoons, etc.) Count them out together as ten.  Have the child hide some behind their back and you must guess how many are hiding by counting the items you can see.  Nect, switch roles so parent hides the items and student must count and guess the number.  Be sure to emphasize combinations that make ten.  (5 and 5, 1 and 9, 3 and 7, etc.)
