1  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Make the best out of car commute time on: September 04, 2016, 07:01:33 AM
Hello everyone,
my daughter is 3 and a half now, she's attending a school that is about a 40 minutes car drive from home and I would like to make the most out of those 80 minutes we'll spend in the car together.
I would like to have some audiobooks or educational songs going, and that is pleasant for both of us.
I know you people  will have the best advice on this
Thank you
2  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Signing, Speaking, Languages / No brainer solution to teaching a language you don't know? on: January 11, 2015, 02:40:51 PM
Hello,
would you be so kind in suggesting a solution as easy, cheap and effortless as possible to teach mandarin chinese ( which I don't speak ) to my 2 year old. We are a bilingual household ( english - japanese ) and the community language is italian. I'd like to add chinese even though I don't speak it. Can you suggest an easy set of videos that I can use perhaps?

thanks!
4  BrillKids Software / Little Reader - General Discussion / Little reader on mac on: July 05, 2014, 07:08:48 PM
Hi, I would like to use Little reader on my mac, but I'd rather not use bootcamp. Do you know if little reader will run on a wirtual mavhine like virtualbox? thanks
5  Products Marketplace / Second-Hand Sell + Swap / Re: Wink to learn Mandarin chinese dvds (UK) on: July 05, 2014, 06:28:59 PM
Hi, if you haven't sold already, I'd like to get the set. I live in Italy though, could you send them there? of course I'll pay postage. Thanks

I have found the Ladybird series, what do you think about those?
7  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / What should I get my child to read? on: July 04, 2014, 02:08:15 PM
I happen to be in Sri Lanka on vacation. I browsed a couple of  bookstores for english books for children and have found plenty, whereas in my own country such books are not available ( not in my city at least).
I purchased a couple of books for bedtime storytelling, some board books ( poor quality though) for my 16 month old to handle and a few preschool books. But there is really an ample range of books, science for children, storybooks, board books for toddlers. I really don't know what I should get
What kinds of books do you advise to start building a good  library for my 16 month old?  Any suggestion is appreciated Thanks
8  Local Support Groups / Italiano / Re: SCAMBIO DVD on: July 03, 2014, 04:02:38 PM
SAlve, volevo sapere se ci sono ancora genitori italiani sul sito, mi farebbe piacere scambiare informazioni. Grazie
9  EARLY LEARNING / Homeschooling / What are the best resources you've found? on: June 30, 2014, 11:32:46 AM
Besides LR, LM and LMs, can you suggest very good resources for early learning reading, math and encyclopedic knowledge?
There are so many I feel overwhelmed and don't know where to start! Thanks
10  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Using Powerpoint presentations on: June 26, 2014, 07:42:00 AM
Hi, I'd like to ask to the more experienced members in this forum how you use powerpoint presentations. One approach I am using is that of choosing 3 sets of 5 cards in different presentations ( say, 5 italian words, 5 body parts, 5 objects). The presentation contain more slides than that, but I stop at the 5th card. I rearrange the cards manually instead of using a randomizer and add and retire cards as per Doman method.

However showing full presentations seems to be easier on both my child and I. I find it easier to show my child a set of 10 or so words in one presentation and stop the session at that. Later in the day I will show a different set and so on. In this case I use a randomizer.  But in this way I am not retiring nor adding cards, how many times should I show the same set before retiring the whole set? is it better to use the first system, with more cards but shown more often? Then how do I switch to another set of words? Do I just go cold turkey after a few days and start a different presentation?

I'm a beginner at EL and amSO confused!

11  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: Very hard to make my 10 month old kid to focus on LR and LM on: June 25, 2014, 11:37:46 AM
I may have a useful suggestion. I've had to invent quite a few strategies to keep my 16 month old engaged, one of these is movement: basically I hold her in my arms in front of the computer, standing so that I can move more freely, that I bounce at every word, or move her closer to the screen  or raise her up. This keeps her giggling and looking at the screen most of the time. Hope it helps
12  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Bilingual toddler: When to start with picture cards in second language? on: June 25, 2014, 11:34:10 AM
Velvetkatze, I have a question for you!
You have  explained very well your reasons for choosing to speak English to your child instead of your mother tongue, I am doing the same with my child, I speak English but I am a native italian speaker, just I am doing it for the sake of giving my child the benefits of being bilingual. We live in Italy and she will attend italian schools ( because I can't afford international ). I feel like my choice to use english will make it more difficult for her to achieve good results in italian schools, as I am not providing her with an extensive and thorough italian language exposure ( that I am sure I could provide, being fairly well educated), and as you pointed out child care givers cannot usually be untrusted with widening a child's vocabulary. How can I make sure that my child still gets enough italian language ( good, high level) exposure while not giving up on english? Do you have suggestions
13  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Can the LR method ( or Doman) induce dyslexia? on: June 24, 2014, 03:29:28 PM
Hello, I'm new to the forum. I have a 16 month old which I am starting on reading and math with LR and LM. Then someone told me the whole word method can cause dyslexia in normal children. Is there such a risk?
