 Math Tip: Why should your child memorize times tables when the world is full of calculators?  Because math facts are the basis for higher math.  When students have to stop and calculate, they lose  their focus on the larger concept.  Knowing the facts will also give your child the confidence to try more advanced math.

 Primary Reading Tip: Make sure your child has regular opportunities to find books she likes. Plan frequent trips to the library.  Sign up for summer reading programs.  Visit bookstores and reading websites.

 Intermediate Reading Tip:  It's a good idea to preview educational websites when your child isn't nearby.  Then, when you hear, "Can I go online?" you'll be able to offer her some choices you like.  Try:

1.  Funbrain.com.  Learning games for K-8

2.  Scholastic.com. Searchable by subject.

3. Starfall.com. Phonics with comics.

4.  PBSKIDS.org. Play with TV friends.
