Drill daily: Make sure your child is keeping in the work to improve and progressively getting better day by day as he trains to become a better speller.
Encourage spelling: Always acknowledge good work and remind him to keep it up. If he ever loses confidence, be willing to work with him and make learning more enjoyable.
Make spelling fun: Incorporate games in the activities. Learning to spell will be much more fun when your child is able to look forward to games that will help with his progress.
Let your child move at his own pace: Never rush him to learn anything that he’s not getting. Every child has his own gradient. Allow him to process what he is learning at his own pace. It is also important to recognize his progress. Don’t keep him on a spelling level that he has already spent enough time drilling. Acknowledge his progress and allow him to move on once he’s ready.

“When I was doing the Study Skills course, when I finished, I felt amazing. I was able to know everything about the three barriers. Now, studying will be easier than ever and my teacher (CLC tutor) is the best! I would know that I don’t know sometimes but now, I do and I know how to fix it.” – O. (7th grade)
“I learned the three barriers to study, and I also learned how to look up a word. This helps me learn and focus better. This can help me become a smart pilot and fly over the world. This all came from my tutor.” – Z. (5th grade student)

Read aloud together: Make it a habit to read aloud to your child every day. This helps them develop a love for reading and exposes them to a variety of vocabulary and storytelling styles.
Set aside daily reading time: Have them choose a convenient time each day to read independently. Encourage them to choose books from genres that they enjoy and find most interesting.
Create a reading-friendly environment: Set up a cozy reading nook in your home with comfortable seating, good lighting, and a selection of age-appropriate books. Make sure it is a quiet and distraction-free space, where your child can concentrate on reading.
Visit the library regularly: Take them to the library on a regular basis and let them choose their own books. Librarians can also recommend age-appropriate books and help your child find topics they are interested in.
Encourage writing and storytelling: Encourage your child to write their own stories, poems, or journal entries. This helps them develop their writing skills and allows them to express their creativity.
Be a reading role model: Make sure that your child knows why reading is so important and that they are going to need it in life. Encourage them to keep reading and to find the definition of any misunderstood words so they can always understand what they’re reading.

Bardmoor Golf & Tennis Club
Located at 8001 Cumberland Road, Seminole, FL 33777. Course Overview Voted 2019 Best Golf Course in Tampa Bay — Host Club to 13 PGA & LGPA Tour Events
Discover Why Bardmoor is a Favorite Among Tour Players – Bardmoor Golf & Tennis Club is one of the premier public golf courses in the Tampa Bay area. For more than a dozen years, our Club was the host site for the PGA/LPGA JCPenney Classic, as well as many prestigious local tournaments.
Bardmoor was founded in 1971 by Oliver Bardes, a wealthy Ohio industrialist who was an avid golfer. The present course was one of three courses designed for Bardes by William Diddle. The first rounds of golf at Bardmoor Country Club was an exhibition match with Ben Hogan and Tommy Bolt in 1971.
In 1998, Bardmoor Golf and Tennis Club opened a new 12,000-foot clubhouse. Today it features a fully stocked Golf Shop, Pizzeria & Grille, and the newly renovated event venue and outdoor patio for up to 300 guests. A Junior Olympic size pool and 16 tennis courts are among the other first-class amenities that you’ll find at Bardmoor. In 2001 Bardmoor underwent a $2 million design renovation by Gary Koch, a six-time PGA tour winner and renowned golf course architect. The greens were renovated, a new irrigation system was added and sparkling white sand was put into the bunkers.
The addition of TifEagle grass to the newly reconstructed greens has firmly established Bardmoor’s reputation for having some of the best greens in Florida. As you play, you’ll find some elevation changes and plenty of holes loaded with character. We have good sightlines on our fairways, and a great many well-tended pine trees. All our Par 3’s here are outstanding and each has something special about it. Everyone loves the shortest of them, No. 5, measuring 174 yards from the back and 115 from the forward tees. This is a picture-perfect hole with lots of appeal. It is one you will remember with its elevated green and glistening water behind the green and to the right. Bardmoor has some longer Par 3’s as well, like the 13th, measuring 225 from the back and 136 from the front tees.

Multiplication War: Shuffle a deck of cards and deal out the cards between two people. Both people flip over the top card of their pile at the same time and say the answer of the number on each of the two cards when multiplied together. Whoever says the correct answer first gets both cards and the person with the most cards at the end wins the game.
Math Games With Dice: Roll two dice, multiply the two numbers, and then add that number to their total to create a running score.
Bingo Math: Create bingo sheets with random numbers on them. Call out multiplication equations and have them figure out the answers. Once a number is revealed, they can mark it off their sheet depending on if they have it or not. Whoever gets five numbers in a row on their sheet will have a bingo.
Multiplication Math Trails: Draw an irregular route on a piece of paper, covering it with different multiplication equations to solve in order to figure out the way.
Multiplication Race: Time how long it takes to solve multiple problems with the goal of beating their own record as they get faster.
