50 Ways to Increase your Child's Learning

41   
Expand Speech. When little ones are learning to speak, don't give in to pointing or one word responses. Expand your child's language and comments with responses that take their ideas one thought further. Later, encourage your child to speak in full sentences and elaborate their thoughts with details.

42   
Practice Speaking.
Public speaking takes practice, but perfection is not the goal. From the briefest hello to conversations with adults, parts in plays and book reports, prepare your child through role-playing and practice. Your child will be more comfortable speaking in very small groups and larger ones.
43   
Apply Mathematics Daily.
From making change, counting forks, dividing cookies, and measuring ingredients to weighing on the scale, setting the thermostat and cutting wood, teach your child the value of math naturally.
Apply Mathematics Daily   


44   
Keep Schoolwork.
Save a selection of your child's work each year to show progress and serve as a record of what he is learning. If there is a problem, repeated mistakes or carelessness, it will be easier to detect with a sequence of examples that can be referenced.
