Set aside 15 minutes per day on weekdays to
help teach your child to read and write Nepali.
Go through each lesson carefully and slowly.
Set a goal that is attainable for your child's
age and personality.
Encourage your child to tackle the homework
on their own.
Review your child's homework diligently and
assign it a grade.
Pay particular attention to the tracing sheets,
correcting any patterns that need improvement.
Encourage your child to practice, practice,
practice...especially between lessons!
Talk about the importance of reading and writing
Review the facts about Nepal together. Enhance
their learning by adding your own knowledge and experience.
Celebrate milestones! Every time your child
has successfully completed 3 lessons take them out to do something
special together. Encourage their success by spending time together.
Once they have learned some letters, encourage
them to show their Nepali friends what they have learned.
Have them send sample letters to their grandparents
and relatives in Nepal.
Below are some suggested times. This can become
a family tradition that is integrated into your life with deep
meaning. For example:
The first thing your child does when they
come home from school is sit down, have a snack with you
and learn 15 minutes of Nepali reading and writing.
Right after dinner and before the tv gets
put on and every family member goes off on their own, sit
down and spend 15 meaningful minutes teaching your child
how to read and write Nepal.
Just before bedtime, take 15 minutes to
learn Nepali together. End each evening spending meaningful
and qualify time with your child as they uncover the treasures
of their native tongue.
