1  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: How to make them realize that they can read sightwords on books? on: March 09, 2013, 05:54:30 PM
I completely agree with printing off the words in the same font onto paper. I would also recommend attaching the pages together to make them into a mini book. You can use rings or staples or even sew them together. I would then read the book as quickly as I would read flashcards. This might help to bridge the gap. Like Wolfwind said, they have a lot to do and see, so you have to move quickly to keep their interest and to show them that you are not trying to take up all their time. Try to keep in mind that large font is best. Small children may be capable of reading small print, but if it takes too much focus, they might bypass it to get onto to something that they consider more interesting and engaging. So large print is best. I also recommend making these books available for your child to flip through whenever they want. My floor is covered in books on a daily basis. And many of my books are being held together with tape. I am personally okay with that as all the tears are accidents usually due to excitement while reading!

6  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Other Topics / Re: At What Age Do You Start Handwriting on: September 04, 2012, 02:15:57 PM
It was around this age that we started to introduce the "idea" of handwrting. And what I mean by that is we got Kumon's My First Tracing Book and My First Book of Mazes and put them in pocket protectors within a binder. We used dry erase markers over the pocket protectors to make them reusable, If you are interested in using the cursive sheets I am putting together, I very much recommend the my first tracing book as it was a big part of my inspiration.

Now, we just got the books and put them together. It took him some time to really get the hang of it all. But we practiced together hand-over hand. He was doing the Tracing book correctly in a matter of months. However, it is only in the last few months that he has become interested in using the Mazes book correctly.

You are very welcome and thanks for taking the time to read it! yes

I would also like to share that you can now print Cursive ABC Tracing Cards from here:

They are hand drawn so some of the lines aren't as clean as I would like, but I don't have the proper programs to make them all fancy.

I have a new blog post up about putting art back into education and why cursive first is a great idea.

Lots of links!
11  Products Marketplace / Product Discussions and Reviews / Would you purchase a cursive program designed especially for EL toddlers? on: August 31, 2012, 03:30:18 PM
I truly believe in the wisdom of teaching children cursive first and I believe that children will naturally pick up print. However, I have found that my son has trouble remembering which line to trace when making letters over cursive tracing fonts. I also find some cursives have too much flourish whereas the modern cursives can be too choppy. I think I have created my solution.

I am thinking of creating a website that will contain printable cursive worksheets similar to the ones I made for my science coloring pages that can be seen here:

I think that would be a great way to share my other resources and lesson plans. I have ideas for math (with an artsy slant), and some grammar lessons as well as more science. All would contain reading recommendations and possibly printable readers, songs, etc. The cursive curriculum would likely be integrated thoughout the others as well as on its own. It will go from words to sentences and onward all the while, the outline will become lighter and the text smaller.

If I could get enough together to warrant such a thing, would $50 a year be too much to ask? Thoughts? Opinions?
12  Products Marketplace / Product Discussions and Reviews / Re: 50% Off Preschool Prep on: August 31, 2012, 03:08:38 PM
We just got the sight word readers and they were an instant hit with my 3 yo. He has become very resistant to reading aloud, but with these and other select easy books (Spot books, Karen Katz flap books, etc.), he is more than willing. I can't wait for the phonics readers!

Mind, he does read whole paragraphs, more difficult books, and diagrams quietly to himself, but I like to encourage him to read to me for gentle corrections in pronunciation, and short and sweet fluency practice. I also believe that public speaking skills are very important especially for "team" settings. I have met many adults that have a very hard time reading aloud during classes and such. These fit the bill beautifully, There are just enough words and the print is large and clear. I can have him read one or two of these a day and let him be on his way.

I decided against any of the DVDs as my son learned everything on them from LR, homemade books or playing with mommy. My daughter seems to be on the same track. The one change I made with her is that we added the Leapfrog Letter Factory and Talking Words Factory to the mix. They are currently her favorites and she will occassionally make several letter sounds when she spots their letters at 8 months old. Another up with the Leapfrog DVDs is that they have encouraged spontaneous spelling in my 3yo son. I don't feel the same would occur with the Preschool Prep DVDs.

 big grin Kids are so friggin cute! You guys are doing awesome! I love how knowledge just comes out the mouths of babes.

Wolfwind: That is great! Making up words, for a 22 month old is impressive esp if she is attempting to write them!

Anna: Ella is so cute! I love the mammoth bones and sticks! I wish my imagination was still that active.

That is awesome. Kids are so great at applying what they know to everything around them! Much better than adults are, I think. Josiah tells me almost daily about the atoms in his hands. LOL
14  EARLY LEARNING / Homeschooling / Re: Scholastic $1 sale on: August 21, 2012, 04:04:41 PM

What ebooks are you referring to exactly? I can't seem to find them...

And on another algebra note: Do you know about Hands-on equations? I think it would be right up Ella's alley as a great Algebra preparation game. I meant to mention it to you before.

The free sight word readers I found are translated into Spanish, French and German!

Click on the reader you want (listed in English) and that will take you to the booklets and helps (extras) page for each. The foreign language printables are on that page.
