Who Uses My Dad Is A Mechanic

This lesson can be useful to any parent who wants to help their Grade 1 child at home. The tasks support what your child is doing in the classroom. This package is easy to use.

  1. You could share the reading – children love to do that. One paragraph each.
  2. Watch over your child while she or he does the tasks.
  3. Avoid prompting your child. Self-correcting is a sign of progress.
  4. Give your child time to work out words using the phonic approach. Small hints can help when needed.

This teaching material is for suitable for parents, though anyone can use it. Any parent can download, print in black, and teach. I have used this item many times in my own tutoring work with many children. I have adapted it so that parents can teach independently. Just use the text to prompt you and work though systematically. Give your child breaks when needed.
