Cursive writing is rapidly disappearing from school curriculums. Print and television newscasts have reported on this trend, and as someone who learned to write with the Palmer Method, I was surprised. How will kids sign their names on legal documents? Will they be baffled if they receive a letter from Grandma in cursive writing? Actually, kids who have not learned this writing are unable to read it, and to them, it looks more like scribbles than communication. A Wall Street Journal article, "The New Script for Teaching Handwriting is No Script at All," says handwriting is "going the way of the quill pen." Students are learning keyboarding instead, a skill my generation calls typing. Many of us use a combination of print and cursive, and that makes our handwriting even more individual.
Find the mistake: These activities are terrible for young kids. An example might be, cross out the word that does not begin with the right letter, or correct the misspelled word. I know, seems like common sense, but I have seen some teachers try to teach young children using these kind of word sheets which are just ridiculously confusing for young learners. Crosswords: Excellent for 7 year olds, rough for kindergarten kids. Search "crossword generator" on Google and you can build your own crossword. Older students really like this; younger students would be a no go. What is the best way to teach your child reading? Some approaches work brilliantly, while others can damage your child has chances to read successfully. Find out more about reading techniques here.
Many children are being left behind due to lack of math skills. Schools today seem to do a poor job of preparing students for math at the middle and high school level. Here are 5 tips that parents can use to help their child be successful at math. Start early. Before your child goes to preschool, they need to be familiar with small numbers, up to 10. Two is easy to teach and point out. Pair of socks, shoes, etc. Five fingers on a hand and toes on feet. Ten total fingers and toes. At the preschool level, start counting up to 20. Add small numbers, 1 plus 1 is 2. 2 plus 1 is 3. You can even begin the fraction of one half. Half a sandwich, and other food items are a great start. When finishing kindergarten, your child needs to be able to count past 20 and know what larger numbers mean as well. Not working with them, just be familiar.
