Since the 1940s was years ago, I often wonder why parents and teachers still have the antiquated idea that learning should not involve movement. Nothing could be further from the truth!

If your child is not using his or her hands, feet, or voice to learn, you may be doing him or her a huge disservice. Check out this tip to find out why.

How Cooking Helps Children Read

If you’re looking for a creative way to teach children reading, look no further than the kitchen. Recipes can be fun to make and taste, but they also often have some of the most obscure directions out there. Your child will get to practice his or her inference skills and taste goodies with this yummy tip.

Many children who suffer from comprehension or inference skills benefit from meeting with a reading tutor online. Why? Well, for one, there’s no one breathing over their shoulder during assignments. A good online reading tutor helps your child feel comfortable and less pressured than they may with an in-person session. Ninth of all (yes, I’m aware that numbers 2-9 didn’t make the cut in this post…this point is most important), teachers and parents often report that meeting with a reading tutor online just 1 to 2 times a week has improved students’ reading comprehension by as many as 3 grade levels.
