Read a book that is not well known by your child. As you read discuss with them what is happening on each page.
After reading have your child retell the book to you in their own words. Ask them to tell you the story starting at the beginning. Ask for details if they are not giving you any. Remind them to speak in complete sentences as they tell you the story.
If they are unable to tell you much about the story reread it with them again. Ask them again to retell the story to you in complete sentences with details about the story.
Fold a paper into 3 equal parts. Label the first part Beginning, the center as the Middle and the third End
Beginning Middle End
Have your child draw a picture for each part of the book. Write a sentence if able or label the parts with a focus on the beginning sounds.
Word Work – Squiggle Park – continue at their level being sure they get 3 stars to show they have mastered the level before moving on.
Play a game of Who rolled more. Keep a score card of your name and your child’s name. Roll 2 dice and count the pips to see how many you have. Write the number under your name. Have your child roll the dice and count their pips. Have them write their number across from yours. Have your child circle the greater number.

Play 10 rounds and see who has more circles. They are the winner.
Play again. As a variation circle the smaller number and see who wins.
