Good Sports

Explain to your child that sportscasters describe a sporting event as it happens. You may want to show an example by watching a sporting event on TV or listening to one on the radio. If possible, attend a sporting event such as a basketball game and have your child describe what he or she sees using the present tense. Then have your child write a few of his or her observations and descriptions in a notebook.Irregular VerbsReading is the best way for your child to familiarize himself or herself with irregular verbs. Together read a book together and keep a list of all the irregular verbs. You and your child may want to keep a running list or irregular verbs that you find while reading. Then have your child tell the present and future tense of each verb.
