In the Remedial Room, we use strategies and activities that support the classroom curriculum.
Most of our activities use a hands-on approach and actively engages the students.
A question that is often asked is, “What can I do with my child at home to help support classroom reading activities”?
Here are some easy suggestions:
- Read to your child daily. Reading predictable books such as Brown Bear, Brown Bear will motivate your child to read with you.
- Use environmental print. Label everyday objects such as “door”, “window”, “bedroom”, etc.
- Place magnetic letters on your refrigerator. Leave a simple message for your child everyday.
- Play “Go Fish” using cards with letters of the alphabet.
- Play “Alphabet Bingo” for letter recognition or “Word Bingo” for sight words.
- Play “Concentration” with sight words that need to be learned.
- Have a set of 10 words in a word bank. Make a pile of “Words I Know” and “Words to Work On”. Review them daily.
