What is the best way to teach my child how to read directions for assignments first?

Parent As Tutor

Review the directions for each assignment with your child prior to attempting to the child's attempt to start the assignment. Make sure you understand the assignment first, so that you can efficiently help your child complete the assignment. Use timers, water breaks, and other reminders to break up long assignments. Before your child returns to task, go over the directions once again to insure that they are still clear in your child's mind.
