Kumon Madison
The end of year is near, and it is key to reflect on what this past year has taught all of us. Ask your child to list all the things they have learned and accomplished this year. Some things might include adjusting to remote learning, completing a challenging level in School or Kumon, or even stepping out of their comfort zone. Read the list aloud and praise your child for their perseverance and hard work this year.

Making lists with your child will help embed some great foundational skills to help them stay organized, be effective, and learn to prioritize. Challenge them this holiday season to create a variety of lists and encourage continued learning through winter break.

Call Kumon of Madison for an orientation, free Math and Reading placement test or simply schedule an orientation online - https://www.kumon.com/madison.
Happy Holidays!
