Can You Top This? - Teamwork is important in school. In this game, children practice taking turns and working with others. They also build language skills.

Listen Up - This game helps teach how to listen carefully and follow directions, two things that are important in school.

Time Marches On - This game will help your children see the difference between "a few seconds" and "a few minutes," and can help them be on time in school.

Now You See It, Now You Don't - This activity teaches children to pay close attention by seeing how long it takes different kinds of liquids to freeze and melt.

Start To Finish - Organization has to be learned. This activity lets children practice planning, beginning, and finishing a job—important parts of completing schoolwork.

I'm OK, We're OK - All of us have ways in which we are special. This activity helps children recognize and appreciate how they, and others, are special.

Where Did I Put That? - Children need help getting organized. A special place for school items helps make mornings smoother for parents and children.

My Place - This activity gives each child a separate place to study or play.

Well Done - Children need the experience of doing chores. The following are ideas to help children be more responsible and realize the importance of people doing what they say they will do.

How Time Flies - "I don't have time to do all I need time to do." Sound familiar? Planning our time is one of the most useful things we can learn. Knowing how long something will take can save time and tempers.

Homework Made Easy (!) - Homework without nagging is much to be desired. Have your child try a homework chart.

Divide It Up - Just about anything is easier to do if it's divided into smaller pieces. As assignments get longer and more complicated, more organization and planning skills are needed.

Help Wanted - Older students are interested in life beyond school. You can help them have a realistic sense of what's out there.

How Can I Help? - We need to think about more than our own interests and ask "How can I help others?"

TV Time - Decide how you are going to use TV. Watching television can be educational or something we do in our spare time.
