Last week I told you how I teach reading to children who are having a hard time learning to read. Today I give you more ideas for reading related activities and a few for mathematics. Please add yours below? Or come to Facebook: Great Shalom
I was asked to say something about how homeschooling moms can help children who are having trouble reading. This is my method. This is how I taught reading to my grandsons. One of them was being put back in Kindergarten for the 3rd time, during the October of his first grade year. My daughter appealed to me since she was getting nowhere with the school system. He learned in 4 hours! We worked with him in other ways and he excelled. Then, I used the same method on the second grandson who had different problems and then compounded with a serious brain injury from a car accident. He went on to a private Elementary with no one ever knowing he had had a problem. He was on the honor roll for the next two years.
Don’t let bad method be the reason that your child learns that he is stupid or that she is “learning disabled.” Of course, some problems may need some help by skilled professionals, but teaching reading in a sensible, organized, multi-sensory way is a reasonable place to start.
Here is how.
Today we begin a series on “What to do When the Road to Reading gets Rocky.” The first thing to do is to be sure of your own mindset, Mama. Faith helps in that!
Please! Share with moms who are beginning to encounter difficulties with their children’s academics! Also home educators, especially if they are having trouble teaching their children to read, will benefit. They feel so alone. Here is help! We will lay things out in a fairly orderly way. They want to know… please tell them it is here, now.
