Teacher and mom Rhonda Cratty has compiled the best tips for helping your children learn into a book titled "Learning at Home."
Cratty's book, offered on Amazon in print and eBook format, is filled with ideas to help children become the best they can be without what Cratty calls "drill and kill" skills.
Drawing from 30 years of teaching experience and raising her own children, Cratty offers parents a year's worth of learning ideas to use at home.
Tips for family fun nights, holidays, trips and everyday ways to learn at home will help parents make learning a fun way for the entire family to bond.
The 48 learning ideas contained in "Learning at Home" are sorted into four ideas each month. Some of the topics include tips to help your child enjoy math, addition and subtraction strategies, backyard science, family cooking and following directions.
Homeschooling parents can use Cratty's book as a resource; however, the book is aimed at all parents, who can use the ideas in everyday life at home.
The learning ideas can be used around the kitchen table, in the backyard or on vacation with objects found at home and books from the library.
Each idea will work with multiple ages and needs within a family. Also included in the book are lists of family-friendly books, recipes, homework help and games to extend learning.
Parents are their children's first teachers and this book helps make the teaching process easier. Parents can challenge and motivate their children, helping them achieve their goals.
All parents can use a little extra help when teaching their children important concepts. "Learning at Home" will help you introduce new concepts to your children and reinforce skills.
