Learning to read is one of the most exciting childhood milestones and I’ve loved watching my children get excited as reading has “clicked” for them. My 7 year old has been reading for a while not but he’s just getting to the point where he really gets it and he looks for any opportunity to read. One of the things that has really helped him get excited about reading was Reading Eggs, so I was more than excited when they offered to sponsor this post so I could share our experience.
Did you know more than 47% of U.S. children are below grade-level reading? That’s a devastating statistic, not just because of the damaging effect it has on a child’s academic (and professional) future but because great reading skills can open doors and enrich lives. The new Rosetta Stone Kids Reading program is designed for kids age 3-7 and can help teach kids to read in an exciting way using your computer or tablet.
Reading is something I’m passionate about and before I even became a mother I knew that was something I wanted to share with my kids. My oldest three children are boys though and that comes with a few challenges. Nationally, boys consistently test lower than girls on reading assessments. The learning gap widens as boys move into middle and high school. These books are a sure way to help your boys discover how truly awesome reading can be.
Thanksgiving is a great time to teach kids about the origins of the holiday. We have a collection of Thanksgiving books that we have enjoyed over the years and we try and find a new favorite every year. Reading historical facts in story form is a great way to learn and helps kids develop a passion for history at the same time.
