    Great tips thank you for sharing. My daughters teacher encourages much of the same! Thankfully we have a child who loves to read and write even if I cant always read her writing!

      You are so fortunate to have a great teacher! I can tell you as a teacher myself that there is nothing better for a teacher to hear praise from a parent. and kudos to you for being supportive! Keep up the good work with your daughter so she makes reading and writing a life long habit!

    Great ideas. My daughter loves learning new things and receiving my feedback. Skills learned early will help kids develop love for those subjects later too.

    Great tips! My kiddos are 4 and almost 6, so this is a big thing in our house. I love watching our 4yo try so hard to write and try to encourage her and take advantage of her interest in it right now. Our other kiddo just finished kindergarten and it’s amazing the progress that is made in one school year!!

      Such great ages! You are right, the progress they make in one year is astounding at that age. I love looking back at the beginning of the year in my daughter’s kindergarten portfolio. So amazing!

      Children are so much more capable than we give them credit for sometimes. Thanks for commenting.

    Great ideas. Especially the reading component. Children live to make books as well. Keep it fun!!

    I love reading together and acknowledging them! It’s so important to uplift children and acknowledge them when they are making progress. It instills self-esteem and confidence. Thank you for the great read. I also love your format. Easy to read!

      Emotional intelligence is often not taught intentionally. It truly makes a difference in all aspects of a child’s education! Thanks for the kind words!

    My parents did so much of what you mention there. I’m so thankful for everything they’ve done for me to turn into such a bookworm!
