Home practice folders are coming home this week!

You will find a GREEN folder in your student’s backpack. It will have their name on the front, like this:

Inside the folder, there will be:

  • A page to practice on the left-hand side, with directions for what to do
  • A log-page, for you to write any questions/comments, and sign that you’ve seen the home practice.
  • Old practice pages will go in the back.

What you should do:

  • Pick a time to practice – at breakfast, in the car going home from school, before dinner, etc. Practice with your child as frequently as you realistically can. 3-5x/week is great, but even 1-2x/week is extremely helpful. Any responsible person (parent, babysitter, older sibling, grandparent, etc) can be a good practice partner.
  • Keep it short! Practice should be 3-5 minutes MAX. Short, frequent practice is the most effective way to make progress, and also the most likely to actually happen in busy families.
  • Sign the log-sheet or home practice page, so that I know you’ve seen it. 🙂
  • Keep the folder in your student’s backpack. If it is always in the backpack, then it never gets lost. 🙂

Here’s to a new year, and lots of speech and language at home!
