Review academic skills for children

Reviewing academic skills for children is an important step in ensuring their academic success. Here are some key academic skills to review:

  • Reading: Review your child’s reading skills, including sight word recognition, phonics, fluency, and comprehension. Consider having them read aloud to you or using reading apps or games to practice these skills.
  • Writing: Review your child’s writing skills, including handwriting, spelling, grammar, and sentence structure. Provide opportunities for them to write, such as journaling or writing letters to family members.
  • Math: Review your child’s math skills, including basic arithmetic, measurement, time, money, and geometry. Use math games or apps to practice these skills in a fun and engaging way.
  • Science: Review your child’s knowledge of basic science concepts, such as plants, animals, weather, and the human body. Provide opportunities for hands-on learning, such as experiments or nature walks.
  • Social studies: Review your child’s knowledge of basic social studies concepts, such as history, geography, and civics. Provide opportunities for learning through books, documentaries, or visits to local historical sites.
  • Critical thinking: Review your child’s critical thinking skills, such as problem-solving, decision-making, and reasoning. Provide opportunities for them to think critically, such as by asking them open-ended questions or having them solve puzzles.
  • Technology: Review your child’s technology skills, such as typing, using basic software, and internet safety. Provide opportunities for them to use technology in a safe and responsible manner.

It’s important to remember that every child develops at their own pace and may have different
strengths and weaknesses. Be sure to provide opportunities for your child to practice and develop their skills in a fun and engaging way, and to praise their efforts and progress along the way.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
