Looking for a somewhat easy read since my brain is usually a little fried at night. Something starting from 1 year and on preferred but if it has a little bit of the first year too then it’s ok. Thanks!!
My daughter is 4 years old because she is a year behind in school because her b day is sept 6, 5 days after the cut off. In her school they start at 18 months she’s in pre-K 3 right now. Since she started pre k 2 she tells me that school is boring and when she started pre-K 3 this year (2XXX-XXXX) she tells me the same thing. What should I do?
When did your child start learning how to write? When do you think it is a good time to teach them the alphabet, numbers, colors, and very basic Spanish words? My dad used to use flash cards on us when we were about 4, instead of him reading to us, he had us read to him while he just guided us along, and he always had us doing those workbooks that you can get at Wal-Mart, and I was reading on m...

I'm a SAHM to a 13 month old. She's great at independent play and loves reading books (by herself and with me). She has TONS of toys, a lot of them are intended for "learning" but I'm looking for more enriching things to fill our days with. We have some flash cards and I try naming things/ asking her to name things when I do play with her. We do music time with an instrume... More
Which do you recommend? We have to make a choice between the two.. has anyone sent their kids to both and found a huge difference? Just wondering how these kids adapt to traditional High-School coming from Elementaries that use MI Theory.
How do I get him to pay more attention to the words? He seems to have most books memorized... I prompt him if necessary. Sometimes he tells me the whole story, other times I read the whole story.
ADHD and dyslexia = frustrated mother and child :(
My kindergartener was an early reader and now reads independently at a grade 2/3 level. He’s way beyond what they are doing in his class and I want to make sure he doesn’t get bored with reading! Is this something I should work with his teacher on or just try to make sure he has plenty of books at home to challenge him?
When Winnie asked if I would answer questions from parents about how children learn to read, I was delighted to say, “Yes!” As well as designing the curriculum behind HOMER’s learn-to-read program, I have been teaching children to read for more years than I like to admit, but I never lose the excitement and joy that comes from helping youngsters make reading breakthroughs. I love sharing helpf... More
My daughter likes to play school sometimes and I was thinking of doing little drills to practice for school—like the morning routine and walking to school etc. Thoughts? Also any book recommendations? She loves stories to prepare her for transitions. TIA
I try to read to her every night, but all she wants to do it wiggle and talk and flip around the pages. Sometimes she engages with the story or pictures but mostly she just isn’t interested. What am I doing wrong?
I've been teaching my 3 and 2 year old about language since birth. My 2 year old, his vocabulary is just beginning to build. He is at 100+ words now. My 3 year old has an impressive understanding for language and grammar. I think she's ready to learn to read. I'd like tips on how to begin. She's known the alphabet for 2 years and can recognize letters in various fonts, both big ... More
