“Work together with your child on a scrapbook featuring familyphotos. Keeping it at school offers a piece of home when yourchild’s blue, or just to share with friends.
A quick note tucked into your child’s lunch box can becomean important event, first when your child recognizes his name, andagain when he rushes to a teacher to read it to him.”

If you can’t volunteer during the day, help set up/cleanup an afterschool event, put homework packets together over theweekend, record yourself reading a book for the listening center,etc.”
