Reading: Read a book of your child's choosing each day. Ask comprehension questions such as: Who is in the story? Where are they in the story? When is the story happening? What happened in the beginning, middle, and end? You can also review the book by taking a picture walk (going through the pictures and describing the story just based on the pictures).
Math: Count! We are diving deep into Money and Fractions. Please discuss what each coin is called and how much it is worth and add different amounts together. We discuss the shapes around us, we talk about the angles of each shape and point to the different parts (such as sides, vertices, line segments, perpendicular, intersecting, or parallel lines within the shape).
Writing: Practice coming up with sentences verbally and then transferring them onto paper. Also make sure that when your student is requesting items, you are requiring students to ask you in a complete sentence. You may also practice the pre-writing strokes: vertical line (from top to bottom), horizontal line (from left to right), cross (vertical and horizontal lines combined), circle, square, and triangle. Providing hand over hand assistance is appropriate in some cases, but it is a good idea to try to back off of the hand by going to the wrist, then elbow, and then independent. Some students may require different amounts of time for each phase.
