How can I help my student?
I am often asked, “What can I do to help my student?” One of the most important things you can do is to encourage reading. Your 5th grader should be reading 20 minutes daily. Let them see you reading too. Ask them questions about what they are reading. Have them summarize a section or list details.
For math keep encouraging them to practice their basic facts. I have many on-line games listed on the resources page. You can also play Multiplication War with a deck of cards or dice.
