Encourage the child to be active and have FUN and PLAY!
Elementary children have a short attention span (15-20 minutes).
Read to and with your elementary child. Yes! Read. Read. Read!
Be patient! Elementary children usually love to learn. Be careful not to turn their love of learning off by being overly critical of mistakes or failures. Make learning FUN! Allow learning mistakes to become part of their education and intellectual development. Children often succeed after making mistakes or errors when the parent remains positive and encouraging.
Avoid using a lot of analogies when you know that your child is having a difficult time processing information. Provide simple answers, comparison and have the child repeat back to you what you said to check for understanding.
