"What You Need To Know To Survive The Future"

                                                                                                                                          Repeat, Repeat, Repeat.

              I ask every class this question. 

     "Our brains, minds or whatever you call it, is extremely good at many things but one thing it excels at.  What is it?"

     I ask all my classes this question, and I can get any number of answers, some strange and bazaar and others quite normal like numbers, math, watching TV, playing computer games etc.

     The answer to -Your brain is very good at one thing. What is it?-

     It is FORGETTING. 

     Your brain is extremely good at forgetting. Most kids, parents and teachers will agree with that.

     Very few students come up with that answer. They all think of something else, and it gets a few laughs after it sinks in. But it is very true.

So we have to re-program ourselves to remember and that usually means, repeat, repeat, repeat. 

     There is a lot of truth in the saying -In one ear and out the other- But there is one way to keep the information in your head without sticking one hand over one ear, and that is to repeat, repeat, repeat. Kids, especially very young kids possible under 6 or 7 years old, love you to just read the same story over and over again. I don’t really know why but they love it. I think it might have something to do with how much of the story they understand. 

To Homeschooling Parents And Parents of Children who are having Problems Learning to Read

Have A look At Three Free Videos About How to Teach Your Child To Read 

     Video 1: Introduction To Montessori Reading.

 Video 2: How To Make Sandpaper Letters. 

          Video 3: How To Teach Reading Using Sandpaper Letters

     As has been said many times before 'a picture tells a thousand words' and these free videos do just that. They are easier to understand as you can see how to make sandpaper letters then how to teach using them.

Then click the confirmation email in your email box. You can unsubscribe at any time. I do not like spam. I will not sell, give away or rent your email address.

     Then the questions start, so you must answer all the questions as best you can. It doesn’t matter how stupid these questions are - you must answer them because this builds vocabulary and understanding. 

Because the kid’s vocabulary is limited there might be a new word or something in a sentence they do not understand.

     Do not try and pass the questions over by saying. -You will learn as you get older. You must try to answer them as your kids are looking up to you because they think you know it all. Anyway by answering questions you will undo any confusion and misunderstanding that is quite common for early readers. For really young learners it is better to use picture books. As they say -One picture tells a thousand words.- 

     For more information about phonics courses I recommend including a Montessori course see our Teach Reading page.
