"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development." Dr. Clive Robbins

Home Challenge:  It’s a good practice for your child to do “homework” everyday.  You can get inexpensive workbooks at All a Dollar that helps with numbers and letters.  Or you can get lots of free printable worksheets on the web such as:  http://www.first-school.ws/theme/handwriting.htm  and http://www.tlsbooks.com/preschoolworksheets.htm .  Try setting aside a few minutes a day where your child sits down and does one worksheet a day.  This will help get in the habit for school not only for your child but for you.
