Whether you are just getting back from a vacation with extended family or you spent your summer relaxing at home sweet home, the back-to-school bell is ready to ring. How will you get all your shopping done with minimal stress?
We all learn in different ways, but most people identify with one of four learning styles. Identifying your child’s learning style helps you to not only better understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses, but also to introduce methods that help aid their learning.
You (really) are your child’s best first teacher. Science tells us that the experiences we have in the first years of our lives actually affect the physical architecture of the developing brain. Your child’s brain is built over time, and it needs a good base to support all future development.
With a little creativity, parents can make year-round learning fun for their children. For children, learning is an ongoing process, one that continues even after the last bell of the school year. Just because families are gearing up for fun, sun and relaxation doesn’t mean educational activities can’t be incorporated into vacation plans.
