Repeat directions in your own words

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