MORE BOOKS, LESS TV AND TEACH THEM TO PUT ON THEIR SHOES

The Jewish Chronicle - - Features -

much time your preschool child spends watch­ing TV and play­ing on com­put­ers. Chil­dren who strug­gle with at­ten­tion con­trol in the class­room have of­ten spent a lot of time in front of screens.

Talk and lis­ten to your child. Read a book with them ev­ery day if you can, and talk about the pic­tures, story and rhymes. This helps with their lan­guage, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and phon­ics skills.

En­cour­age in­de­pen­dence (eg putting shoes or tights on) as this is great for their de­vel­op­ment and is much ap­pre­ci­ated by teach­ers too.

Make sure your child is get­ting plenty of sleep – it will re­ally help his per­for­mance at school.
