Restate the Directions in Your Own Words
A great way to ensure your child understands what they’re being tasked to do with an assignment (especially those with multiple steps) is to ask them to repeat the directions back to you in their own words. If they are clear on what they need to do, this activity will help reinforce it. If they are unclear and not able to repeat the directions back in their own words, that’s okay and good to know! It just means they likely need a bit more support carefully breaking down the directions into a step-by-step checklist.
