I’m constantly telling parents to listen to their “guts” as far as their kids go. This seems so simple, but our tricky brains will want to talk us out of those perfect intuitive feelings we have about our kids or even our dogs.
Spring is here and with that, it’s a good idea to revisit the importance of motor skills and how they affect learning. Getting kids outside or providing the opportunity to move can be a fantastic way to get the job done.
I get more requests for help with math skills than any other subject. It’s no wonder! With new expectations, math now involves both reading and writing, which penalizes a student who struggles in language arts but otherwise might succeed in math.
