Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
Learning activities parents can do with their children are described. Descriptions of activities are organized according to three age ranges: kindergarten through 3rd grade, 4th through 6th grade, and 7th through 12th grade. Initial discussion concerns pointers for parents of kindergartners; 41 things schools expect children to do before they enter first grade; and ways for parents to help their children learn to read. The learning activities for children in kindergarten through 3rd grade can take place in the kitchen, while shopping or traveling, and during vacation trips. Parent participation in children's learning of basic skills is also covered. Learning activities parents can do with children in grades 4 through 6 fall into the same categories as those for the younger children. Activities to enhance basic skills during waiting periods for children in grades K-6 are also described. Learning activities parents can do with children in grades 7 through 12 concern reading comprehension, encouragement of reading, thinking skills, a language experience story, study skills, math, career planning, words used in following directions, and an essential vocabulary. Suggestions for helping junior high and high school students conclude the guide. (RH)
