Researchers has proven that children can lose as much as six to eight weeks of school if children minds are not kept active and stimulated with new information each day. as a professional reading specialist, their is nothing more dear to my heart then literacy . I try to give helpful hints that will help prevent brain drain and keep your child mind sharp. I hope you can take advantage of these fun easy tips. Todays' tip is after your child reads a story have your child tell you orally what the story was about. Get as much details as you can. In that way you can check on their comprehension. I am an advocate for literacy as many of you are. Wouldn't be wonderful if we could all be advocates in little ways by helping children become successful in school and in life.
