Tutor helping struggling child with math and science
12/17/2014
As the holiday break is coming up shortly, we are sure you have numerous plans with your family, and it might be a quite busy time for you. However, it’s important to maintain certain norms with your child in order to help him or her get back into the swing of school a bit more easily come January. One way to do this is by ensuring your child continues to read over the break. The Tutoring Center in Bear would love to help you figure out just how to do that today, by providing some fun tips. 

The first possibility, of course, is to read for pleasure with your children. If you have a favorite holiday story you like to read, like ‘The Night Before Christmas’ for example, have your child read it to you instead of reading it yourself. You could also take the time to work through a series of books with your child which he or she has shown particular interest in. 

After Christmas you should consider having your child write thank you notes to those who gave presents or invited him or her over. Not only will this provide your child with a moment to practice writing and penmanship, it is also a great opportunity to teach your child more about being grateful. 

You could get your child to assist you in making a grocery list. He or she will get an opportunity perhaps to make some decisions and practice writing. 

Likewise, you could consider allowing your child to help you cook in the kitchen. He or she can read the recipe and help you gather the ingredients. Of course you can take it a step further, allowing your child to help you with the measurements and practice a bit of math. 

You could consider giving books as Christmas gifts, as this can cause your child to form positive associations with books and reading in general. It’s also a good idea to provide a reading space in your home, especially for older children. Your child will appreciate their own independent space in which to read.

These are but a few simple, effective ways to get your child motivated to read over winter break. Even the small things can help them to remain enthusiastic about learning. Another great way to keep them engaged in learning is to promote creative activities over the winter break. Remember that if your child is having difficulty in reading, or any other academic area, The Tutoring Center is here to help. For tutoring in Bear be sure to contact us at (302)-832-2400.
