4  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Teacher Says Students are Dumber Every Year on: February 28, 2012, 06:12:09 PM
That bothers me, and it saddens me. The school where my kid goes is a decent/good school in our community, yet it fails on educating at a competitive level in my opinion. My child started there already knowing how to read and math above grade, and almost 2 years later now, according to the teacher, he is falling behind Sad.
I work with my son at home almost every day so he can stay motivated, but his motivation has gone down the drain. Kids at school are like 'zombies', they just don't know why they are doing what they do, and some teachers are like that too Sad.

What frustrate me the most is that we have to stay up until late every day trying to do the work that he is supposed to do at school at home. After we are all tired, and needless to say that my patience is worn out after a long day of work and chores at home.

I feel that the school system has failed my son and our family, we started above level, and the they have not been able to keep him up. I talk to other families whose kids go to private schools and they are in a different level, not sure why. I guess we have to pay big bucks in order to get the quality of education our kids need.

Thank you! I see, the product I just ordered last night was Your Baby Can Speak Spanish from their official website which is $39.95 I think. So I am curious once I receive this product to see the main difference between this new product and the Your Baby Can Read one.

I am interested in getting the French version.

Thanks again!

can you post a link?

thanks! smile
7  EARLY LEARNING / Homeschooling / Re: To homeschool or not to homeschool on: November 17, 2011, 05:36:47 AM
Thanks FortNelsonMom for the advise about the book, I will request it this week from our library! And thanks to you too mother_of_faith for your great and detailed advise!

I love teaching my kids and for me is more like a game, we usually work setting up goals every week, once I see my children's strengths or weaknesses I might adjust the goal one level up or down, and work from there. I love to see how they grasp knowledge and how the gears in their brains start making sense out of everything smile.

I have already lots of workbooks for every subject since we work at home during vacation or when I feel we need to catch up with something.

I am still feeling undecided, but I think is because I need to learn more about the homeschooling process before I make a decision. So I will find out what would my resources be where we live and read more about the art of Homeschooling.

I have to admit that my biggest concern is that he would miss his friends from school a lot Sad.

Hi KL,

My girl LOVES your App! is funny you mention we 'found' it because (i) I always browse 'brillkids' in the app store just in case you guys are up to something Wink, and (ii) I remember reading in this forum about the new app for iPad.

Anyhow, we are so happy you designed this app for iPads, since we are apple users at our house this is a nice surprise smile, and my kids are the primary users for our family iPad.

Thank you very much!!

Would love to see more lessons, even if we need to buy them smile.
9  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: My baby can read!!! on: November 17, 2011, 05:11:14 AM
Never mind! I found it in their official website, and I can't believe the price, I paid a lot more for YBCR and YBCD than for this Spanish version!
But my kids LOVE this program!
10  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: My baby can read!!! on: November 17, 2011, 05:02:48 AM
I have been looking for a version of YBCR in Spanish but I can't seem to find it online, at least in the USA. Can anyone post a link?

Thanks much!
11  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: Reading Bear is live! on: November 08, 2011, 05:54:50 PM
I LOVE IT! I have saved it in my Favorites and I am planning on using it with my little girl, thanks so much for doing this!!

Great job!!
12  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: Little Reader Touch on: November 08, 2011, 04:52:53 PM
I also downloaded last night the Doman's Math Dots App. I have not started using it yet but I like that the lessons come organized already in the slides and after is played it checks a chart so you can keep track on how many times did you play each lesson to your baby each day.

I found other very useful apps that I downloaded for my 22 month old girl, but I can't remember all of them right now. I will make a list and share it later here.

smile
13  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Little Reader Touch on: November 08, 2011, 03:22:43 PM
Hello!

I just downloaded the Little Reader touch last night in our iPad and my little girl is LOVING IT! I like the fact that the first lessons are very similar to the YBCR because she feels familiar to the vocabulary already.

Great job Brillkids team!! When can we start seeing more lessons added to that App?

smile
14  EARLY LEARNING / Homeschooling / Re: To homeschool or not to homeschool on: November 08, 2011, 02:10:29 PM
Thanks everyone for your comments. I have been doing some thinking. So far, we also have been doing the 'afterschooling' just like melodym37 mentions, but my son has told me sometimes that he would love to have some free time when he could relax or read or play. So I worry about overwhelming him after school.
We do practice piano everyday as we are in the Suzuki program which is basically 'homeschooling' for music, and some days he has after school classes. But I am concerned that every time I ask him 'what did you learn at school today?', he can hardly recall anything new. He tells me what he did with his friends at recess.
And he does not bring home often any homework or a book where I can see what has he been working on, so I feel the need to test him at home to see where he is at.
He is the most advanced reader and has very good math skills in his class, not sure if he is above his peers but last year he was in the Gifted and Talented program. I do not think he is gifted, but just a bright kid that has worked with his parents since baby. However I see the potential for all he can still learn and accomplish and I do not feel he has been 'pushed' in the right direction. I think the teachers are doing their best, but having a class where even the second graders are at a basic K reading level, their priorities usually go to make sure all the kids are reading at the level they are at.

15  EARLY LEARNING / Homeschooling / To homeschool or not to homeschool on: November 07, 2011, 02:41:46 AM
Hello,

I would like to get some advices on the dilemma of 'how to know if homeschooling is right for your family?'

Perhaps this topic has been posted already and I have not read it, but I still would like to get an honest feedback from parents that have homeschooled.

My 6 year old boy is currently attending public school, but somehow I get the impression that he is not getting enough of it as he should be. I don't think he is progressing enough in his learning process, nor I think he is very enthusiastic about learning when he is at school.

When he has school breaks, like summer or winter break, I take on homeschooling him, and it seems that he takes big leaps learning with me, in a short amount of time  than in all the time he spends at school.

He is still at school mainly because I want him to have friends around and a social life, and because I am not sure (honestly) I will have the stamina to do this all year around. By the end of the Summer break or Winter break I end up exhausted of all the activities we do together on top of my regular responsibilities like home making and my part-time job.

To all the homeschool parents: How do you do it?, are you able to keep a job or part-time job if you decide to homeschool?, what's the worst case scenario that can happen if i decide to homeschool?

Please advise me because this 'homeschool' bug it's been itching for quite a while now.

Thanks all!
