The Road To Greatness         Download on Kindle

Some of the greatest minds in history have struggled with some all-too-familiar problems: Albert Einstein’s father nicknamed his young son “the dopey one.” Isaac Newton’s family insisted that he needed to become a farmer, not a scientist. When Charles Darwin’s father sent his son off to medical school, Darwin got in trouble for leaving his books behind as he went out and studied nature. Like too many kids today, these and other famous people struggled with disappointments, distractions, and disasters. But to read their stories is to become inspired at what they accomplished against...

After his death, Apple’s co-founder, Steve Jobs, was memorialized as a man of great vision, someone who knew how to take his dreams and see them through to fruition. While not every child may be suited to become the next co-founder of a tech giant, children can learn to experience success by adopting many of the traits that defined Jobs. His vision, his attention to detail, and his desire to always strive for the best are all traits parents can encourage in their own children. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma –...

Socratic learning and iPads in the classroom

Socrates was a thinker from ancient times. His theory as a teacher was that asking questions would increase learning. Through questioning, students learn better than they would just by listening to a teacher or reading a book. The fact that students have to get involved in a discussion means that they must know the information in order to ask questions and answer them, too. Many students really enjoy Socratic discussions because they really enjoy talking. Following in the Footstep of Socrates Many of the most famous educational leaders from the 1900s believe that Socratic...

Building a love of reading one book at a time

There is no doubt that children love to play with computers and tablets. The advent of the tablet has made it easier than ever for children to become comfortable using technology at very young ages. Where older generations had to be taught to use technology, it seems like children leave the womb being able to use smartphones and iPads. Kids and Their Ease with Technology The challenge for parents is not in teaching kids how to use technology, but in finding technology tools that are interesting and educational at the same time. Of course, children love to play games with smart...

Touring history with iPads in the classroom

Tweet Share When my principal visited my classroom last spring to ask if I wanted to have a set of iPads in my classroom, I had to say yes. I knew that technology was vital to the success of my students in the present and future; but as someone who had never held an iPad, I was a little scared of my quick answer. I knew they would be helpful for my 5th graders with math, science, and reading, but I had no idea how much fun it would be to study history, too. Potential for Differentiation In my search for history resources, I stumbled upon The Road to Greatness....

It all starts at home!

Success at school begins in the home. Children who grow up in homes that are filled with language, good food, books, and art are usually very successful at home. A culturally rich environment gives children the tools they need to succeed in school and in life. They learn the importance of reading, the joy of learning, and the value of appreciation. In today’s world, students also need to have early access to technology, so they can become comfortable with tools that they will be using for the rest of their lives. Parents Serve as Role Models Parents need to be involved in...

The benefits of reading to children from an early age

Reading is the most important educational skill. While many educators and learning experts disagree with this statement, it is hard for them to argue. Reading really is the most important skill that a child can learn during the school-age years. Many educators are under the impression knowing how to do math is more important that being able to read. Without reading skills, people would not be able to read a math problem and learn about the possible solutions. Reading is a part of every curricular area. Social studies classes read everything from political cartoons to historical...

Be a great mystery reader

I first became a Mystery Reader a few years back, prior to my increased understanding of what needs to go into my child’s education and learning experience in order to have a bright future. I would normally grab any book readily available and what I thought was suitable to the age group at the time. Once reading, I would proceed to read as quickly as I could so I could get back to something more important. After all, I paid my taxes and it was up to the school district and my child’s teacher to provide the education. I’m sure it was clear to my kids and their fellow classmates that...

The Importance of Reading to Future Success

One of the truest predictors of future success is the amount of reading that children do at a young age. The amount of time that children read and are read to predicts whether they will be successful. Surprisingly, parents and children do not have to read for hours each day; they only need to read for 20 minutes each day. With 20 simple minutes of reading, students are exposed to over 1,000,000 words in the course of a school year. In comparison, children who read for five minutes per day are exposed to a paltry 8,000 words each year. Imagine what your child will know by spending 20 minutes...

Create excitement for learning at home with an iPad digital library for young kids

The world of education begins at home and every child’s first teachers are their parents. Children love to learn, but parents can either stall that love or keep it going. Without the encouragement of their parents, children can lose that love of learning, which can make their time in school unnecessarily unpleasant. However, when parents are committed to helping their children succeed academically, children will learn discipline and they will develop a curiosity for learning. Tweet Share The World in Your Hands One of our products that helps students feed their...

Success bringing autistic children and animals together

Animals can make a big difference helping children with autism begin to understand emotions. Some experts believe that the simple emotions that animals display are easier for children with autism to understand. A recent study at the University of Queensland in Australia found that children who have animals around them are more likely to show positive social behaviors. This is good news for anyone who works with an autistic child on a regular basis. Good New from Research The University of Queensland research was conducted with children from age five to thirteen. The researchers...

Why I Love Homeschooling

A few years ago, I decided to quit my job as a public school teacher so I could stay home and teach my children myself. I became tired of the politics of public schools and the heavy emphasis on testing. My children were in large classes with teachers who obviously cared about them, but they were overwhelmed with children who could not follow directions and behave. Since my children are both very well behaved, they were often placed next to these badly behaving students. I understood why the teachers did this, but I still did not like it. After listening to my kids complain and...

Ease of finding homeschooling materials for teaching young kids

In the early days of the homeschooling movement, parents had a difficult time finding materials. As publishers realized that this large group of families needed high quality materials, they took a big step towards meeting their needs. Since many homeschooling parents are not trained as teachers, the materials they use need to be easy for parents to use with obvious lessons that do not need to be planned. The materials also needed to be specifically designed for a wide variety of educational levels, too. Homeschool Publishing Marketplace Publishers have created a huge market...

Early Learning and Academic Success

Many people do not realize the significance of early learning when it comes to broadening a person’s intellectual abilities. Even an infant’s experiences can deeply change his or her development. The fact of the matter is that a child’s future academic success is strongly based upon early learning that takes place before the age of 3. The public education system in the United States clearly leaves a lot to be desired. In Clayton Christensen’s book “Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns,” he discusses the way that ideally integrating...
