**Reading My advice:**Have student read for 15 minutes if in Kindergarten to 1st grade. Have student read for 20 minutes if in 2nd to 5th grade. Make sure you have them respond to at least 4 questions about what they have read. For example: Who are the main characters in the book? What was the tone of the book? What was the main or important idea in the book? Use supporting evidence from the text. Make sure they know their sight words for their grade level because that is important. Give quizzes before the start of an activity.

**Math:**

**Pre-School to Kindergarten**read the directions to them. Use drawings, hands, or manipulative's to help the student solve the problem. All children learn differently and please take your time. Have them do connect the dots, make them count to 30-100. Have them describe objects in the house that pertain to a mathematical object such as a triangle or square.If in Kindergarten have them write a math word problem and answer it.

**1st to 5th grade**math becomes a little more challenging. Have the student watch Khan Academy Videos, or my you tube channel which is coming soon.

**For word problems have the students use the CUBES method. C means circle the key numbers. U means underline the question being asked. B means box any math action words or operational signs. E means Eliminate unnecessary information, evaluate, and draw. S means solve and check. Meaning show all your work and then check to see if it was right.**

Multiplication: Have students create a multiplication chart. Make them do their multiplication until they get it right. Use strategies like grouping using pictures. Have them count and show them it means the same as with no picture. Teach them that division is the opposite of multiplying. For example: 6 times 2 is 12 and 12 divided by 6 is 2. Always giving them a visual will help them understand the math better.
