1  BEYOND EARLY LEARNING (for older years) / Languages / Re: Ready to read and write on: Today at 02:50:22 PM
I used the 'MUZZY' movies in elementary school. They are cartoon videos that teach children languages such as Spanish and French. It is funny and entertaining. While the kids are watching the movie, explain to them what the characters are saying and give out worksheets related to what they've just watched. Also, do a lot of fun activities. Coloring worksheets are effective because kids can learn the names of Spanish colors this way.
2  EARLY LEARNING / Parents of Children with Special Needs / Re: Please introduce yourself! on: January 16, 2018, 09:12:54 AM
My daughter is in grade 2, and it was brought to my attention by her teacher that her reading level was below grade level. After 2 months, my child is now reading at grade level and expected to excel beyond. We completed this program and it was fantastic. It was very easy to follow and straightforward. She became so much more confident sounding words out and generally reading.

4  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Teach Your Baby Math - At What Age? on: January 05, 2018, 03:19:55 PM
You want to teach your baby math, and that is great news. You want to know though, what is the best age where your child will learn the most? That is a great question, and as you continue reading you will find your answer.

- Good job Mom or Dad! You want to teach your baby math and this is going to be something that you will be thanked for by your child later. There are a lot of parents that are excited about doing this but they are not sure if this is going to push their child too far too fast. You should not be worried about this. Babies are like little information sponges and it's fine to teach your baby math early on. Let's go on now to talk more about why you should start out at a young age as well as some easy things that you can do to get them ready.

- As I said above your baby is going to absorb information easily. You can actually teach your baby math at an age as young as 1-month-old. No, I did not say 1 year old, I said 1 month old. This is amazing and you will be happy that you can start out right away. As you become more comfortable with teaching your baby you are going to enjoy the process. If you let this time window up to 6 years pass you are really allowing something very special to be missed.

- Now you are wondering what you can do to teach your baby math. There are some simple things that you can do. Some parents use flash cards that are quite expensive others try to just use their fingers and different things like that but the best and easiest way for the parents and for the babies is an online software that is inexpensive as well as designed with your child in mind.

- A mixture of games, colors, and fun is going to allow your baby to get well on the way to being a little genius. You are sure to save yourself a lot of trouble with low grades at school and a lot of times with for your child when you teach them early on.

If you want to know exactly what age your should teach your baby math, it is between 1 month old until they are 6. This is when they will absorb the most.

All the best to you and your children!

Why can't I join busuu.com? I've tried many times to make an account. But when I try to log in, it just says that the password is wrong (even though I know it's right) and asks if I want a new password sent to my email. But when I click where it says "Sorry, [email address] is not recognized as a username or an email address".
6  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Maternity clothes question on: December 31, 2017, 11:02:29 AM
I've had the best luck with Gap Maternity, both online and in the back of my local BabyGap store. It is more expensive than Motherhood Maternity, but I signed up for their credit card and have actually been getting really great deals. I find the quality and fit to be better which is good since I have to wear nice stuff to work.
7  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Looking for computer games for 18 month old on: December 29, 2017, 04:59:13 AM
Check out the local superstore they will have a lot of different games. Also good games on Disney.com. These are all educational. The fact is that every game she plays is educational at this age. And also, not every single thing she does every day has to be educational - some things can be just for fun.
8  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / 5 Tips on How Talking Will Help Them Learn! on: December 26, 2017, 12:16:58 PM
Teach your baby math when they are born is the key. This is when their senses are at their greatest, and once they start talking they will learn even faster. Why is it that when they talk they will learn faster? Continue reading my friends to find out.

* Their vision starts developing. When they are babies they want to talk so badly, but everything comes in time. This is where as a parent you have to teach your baby math. You can sing and talk to your child and they will try to copy you. You see, they want to learn and they will listen to you. They are developing what is called their auditory sense.

* They associate sight and sound and become aware that when they 'talks' things happen too. The more interactions there are between you and your child at this stage, the sooner your child will develop their senses. The thinking and feeling processes are also developing and with them a thirst for knowledge. By you stimulating this process it will enhance their ability to make connections, to assimilate, and later to analyze and give meaning to objects and words and the connections between them.

* It is vital for you to interact at this stage, to your child's development. When they listen to your voice talking or singing, it leaves a deep impression on them. They want to talk to you and it shows in their interaction with your actions and the sounds you make. They are so responsive and so eager to learn and this is when you should teach your baby math.

* There is a positive effect on the ability for you to teach your baby math when they can start talking. When they hear their own voice it motivates your child to learn math. You as the parent should get so excited when you hear your child talking. You should show this excitement to your child by clapping your hands, and then your child will get excited and this will stimulate their auditory and visual senses.

* For you to teach your baby math you must develop how your child can associate with things first. Of course, the younger your child learns to talk the quicker they will learn math and reading. The most important thing is to encourage them to hear because he or she wants to say what they hear and this will lead them to want to learn more and more.

I truly hope you see the importance to teach your baby math once they are born, and how when they start to talk they will learn so quickly. Not only will your child have the best beginning that they can have, but you will have created an unbreakable bond with them that no one can take away.

11  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / The Best Children’s Books of 2017, According to Kids on: December 13, 2017, 09:03:21 AM
After the Fall by Dan Santat



A twist on the classic tale of Humpty Dumpty takes a look at how Humpty is getting along after his famous fall. He is now terrified of heights, which is not good for an avid bird watcher who likes to climb up to high places. Wit and charm mingle with important ideas about overcoming fear in this masterfully told story.

Claymates by Dev Petty



Two blobs of clay transform into funny shapes and ultimately become the best of friends. A great book to inspire creativity and imagination. Warning: You will likely want to get crafty and do a hands-on project with clay immediately after reading this.

Town Is by the Sea by Joanne Schwartz



A gentle story of a boy living in a maritime mining community shares a “day in the life” experience. We follow the boy from waking up to visiting his grandfather’s grave to returning home for dinner. The illustrations are stunning and thought-provoking as we get a glimpse into a lifestyle that feels far away from the busyness of most of our lives.

We’re All Wonders by R. J. Palacio



The picture book version of the smash hit middle-grade novel and movie, Wonder, shares an earlier story of Auggie, a boy with facial deformities who navigates trying to fit in and be the uniquely special individual he is. As Mrs R. shares, “This book is perfect for readers of all ages to see the good and kind in everyone.”

Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers



This book examines a well-known symbol in American history, the Statue of Liberty, and gives fresh insights about a detail that most adults overlook. Why is her right foot lifted up as if she’s in mid-stride? This is a rare nonfiction text that is laugh-out-loud funny and simultaneously teaches new facts and opens your mind to new perspectives.

Blue Sky White Stars by Sarvinder Naberhaus



An inspiring and patriotic ode to America and the beauty of the American flag as a symbol of America’s history, landscape, and people. Powerful illustrations and poetic text make for an emotional story.

Baabwaa and Wooliam by David Elliott



Dental hygiene is the surprising centerpiece of this hilarious tale about friendship and the love of books. Two sheep friends, Baabwaa, who loves to knit, and Wooliam, who loves to read, meet a third sheep that turns out to be the famed wolf in sheep’s clothing. An unexpected friendship and lots of life lessons arise from their time together.

12  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Re: Doing maths with a toddler on: December 09, 2017, 12:16:49 PM
Math is about more than counting, it is also about size and quantity. Stacking cups or boxes are great. Pouring water into different size containers at bath time is also great. He can sit at the table and count the plates, cups, forks etc. when you set the table. He can also count while you give him two spoons of corn. Put toys, which are about the same size (cars or farm animals) into two groups, ask him which has more then let him count to find out. Does he know his uppercase letters? The older decks of Uno cards make for great play; all they need is colors, numbers and 3 uppercase letters. My 3 year old plays now like a pro, except that the puts his cards face up on the table, and just last week started dealing. We also used to count the teeth every morning when we brushed them. And he would count socks to put in the washer. Dice games are fun so are games with spinners they will help him recognize his numbers and give him counting experience. Most of all have fun.
