What advice would you give to a mom who thinks her child has too much homework?

What's one of your favorite educational activities that can be done outside the classroom?

What can parents do to get their child ready for Kindergarten?


There are a lot of fun games that parents can make that won’t break the bank. These games can be a fun way to promote letter knowledge, phonological awareness and math skills all while having fun, your children won’t even know that you are getting them ready for school. But most important thing is you are giving them the joy of learning. You can make a letter clipping game by writing letters around a piece of card board and give them cloths pins with letters written on them. Have your children match the letters on the cloths pins to the letters on the card board. Not only will they be leaning letters but they will be improving their fine motor skills at the same time. Make number and letter game boards and have your children roll the dice and move their marker the right amount of times. Have them identify the letter, color, shape or number that they landed on. Having your children use dice is a great way to have them subatizing numbers. (being able to identify an amount by just looking at the objects or dots)
