Homework Help:

Having difficulty understanding the language that your child’s homework is in, but still would like to help/review? Download and use Google Lens! By shining your camera over the sheet, it will automatically translate it into your desired language for your viewing pleasure: Google Lens – Search What You See.

Rising 1st Grader Pro-Tip:

Over the summers, journaling 2-3x/wk in Spanish & English, partially to keep up penmanship, but also because they will be writing a lot more in 2nd grade. If they seem resistant, have them write out a birthday or Christmas wish-list.
