Dyslexia Gold – A review

I’ve previously discussed my son’s language disorder struggles that have an impact on his reading skills. He tends to skim through text, not ready clearly mostly when it is not a preferred book.  I am hence continually looking for resources that can help him.

LeapStart Interactive Learning Success Bundle

As a parent, we struggle from time to time to curate a child’s day with meaningful activities.  It is easier to fall into the rabbit hole of “screen time” along with our daily grind of life, in general.  Even with the best intentions we may fall short and sometimes feel guilty about our decisions managing screen time.  I am always looking out for creative options to engage my child, which led me to LeapFrog‘s   LeapStart® Learning Success Bundle™.  So, why does screen time restriction warrant attention and is it really important to pause and think?  Yes indeed!

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The Wonder of Creation: 100 More Devotions About God and Science I admire how Indescribable Kids & Co. has combined faith and science in this new book. Science fascinates our children, and they constantly question, “Why?” about everything.  My son’s questions seem to be never ending!  This book attempts to address such questions and in the process, it also teaches some basic science.

Math Mammoth Curriculum Review

What is Math Mammoth?

Differentiation

Differentiation of instruction, is it really needed?

The child is ready when he/she is!  You may have heard this several times, when it comes to educating a child with special needs.  Well, do we know when they are ready?  Are we doing anything to make them ready, like we do in all other arenas of their life?  Does repetition alone mean quality instruction that has been well tried?  These are some questions that come to the mind of a well intentioned parent/caregiver when they are dealing with a child having diverse needs.  If you are one of them then read on!
