1) Take interest (ask your child about their new class, what they like, don’t like, etc.);
2) Get back into the swing of things (children like and need routine — get back into the homework AND chores routine right away);
3) Have fun with reading and writing (particularly with younger children, read to them each day, and also have them practice their writing by making cards for friends and family!).
