What can you do? Spend time reading with your child, as often as you can. You’ll be giving your child a life long gift. Opening books, opens doors! Provide your child with opportunities to estimate, to count and to create patterns. Please speak to me, if you feel your child is having any difficulty. I will do my best to work with you to remedy the situation. If we can’t remedy it, I can bring other people in to help.
