So I’ve been using IXL to help my kids feed their brains during the summer and I think its been very helpful. I do think its a bit expensive, but I like the way the site in contructed to help them learn. So we are going to continue with it throughout the summer and see what happens.
How Do I get my Kids to Read..
I know how important reading is, and how critical it is to passing exams including maths. My kids hate reading, if they have to read to solve a math problem they would get it wrong because they refuse to read. Now I’m trying to figure out ways I can get them to read and the type of books that would be interesting to nine year olds. I know they like comic books, but trust me, they only look at the pictures. Somehow they can look at the pictures and tell you what happening in the story. ( that’s a good start right?) I need them to read!
My first Challenge/solution
Read a book with them everynight…. So my intention is to read a book with them everynight and discuss the story to see if that will pull some interest.
Read a different book everynight for 2 weeks starting 7/11/2017 ending 7/25/2017.
So on the 26th night someone should be asking for me to read them a story…..
Any suggestions and or opinions??
