audible learning
 We love audiobooks- they are fantastic for increasing a child's academic vocabulary, supporting their comprehension, and creating the meaningful imagery students need to make connections with literature.  All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet. 
Tips for homework:
1. Create a routine - Prepsters (and others) are used to having a regular schedule at school. As much as you can, create and stick to a schedule or routine at home. (Example: come home, snack, homework, play outside OR soccer practice, dinner, homework, bedtime routine)
2. Focus on school-related work in specific time increments - establish a time of day (see suggestions above) and a certain place for students to do academic work. 

4. Build in time for fun and to let off steam! -Dance parties, a run around the block, etc. We have recess at school for a reason!
