Help Your Child Learn by Teaching Someone Else

Encourage your child to help a younger sibling master a new concept – like adding or subtracting two-digit numbers. The exercise of teaching the material to someone else will prove to be a helpful review for your child. Not only will she gain practice with the actual skill, but she'll also gain confidence in her ability to do similar tasks. As an extension activity, have the younger sibling – who just learned the material – teach the concept to you.
