By now the children are settling into their vacation from school. Holidays have come and gone and the children are still enjoying staying up late, sleeping in, playing with new toys, visiting with relatives and just having fun. Parents, please be sure to have your child review all 26 alphabet letters and sounds each and every day of the vacation. Add to this review the numbers from 1-31 which must also be practiced each and every day of the vacation. Some children in Kindergarten lose information when they come back to school after a regular weekend. Teachers must review rules of the classroom and have quick reviews of what was learned the week before. Can you imagine the reviewing that has to be done after a 2 week break from school and school routines? You can help your child make a smooth transition back to school in January by working with them daily on recognizing letters and letter sounds and by reviewing the numbers from 1-31 each and every day of the vacation, no matter where you are.
