In the fast pass world we live in it can sometimes be a challenge to have activities for children to learn and explore in everyday life. “Learning at home by Rhonda Cratty is a new parent resource, filled with ideas to help children become the best they can be. Daily activities for family fun, that make subjects become more than pencil and paper, moving learning into everyday life.”
Rhonda Cratty taught in public school for 30 years; as a teacher of Gifted and Talented students from K-6th, a regular classroom teacher, and as an instructional coach. In a recent interview with Cratty, she talked about her new curriculum that gives themes and activities for families called “Learning at home”.
Cratty uses her experience and knowledge to create an interactive curriculum that gives parents an easy to follow outline of activities to engage their children. “Parents want information of ways to help their children at their fingertips. Learning at Home is a resource for all parents to find ideas, homework help, lists of books, recipes, and more.” says Cratty
There’s a new theme every week with activities to complement the theme. Cratty has set up the activities so that they can be adapted for different ages of children in the home. She provides a supply list of items that will be needed for the activities. Most of those are everyday house hold items.
“Learning at home” gives a balance of activities in all domains; such as math, science, writing, and reading, etc. It’s easy for parents to follow and implement in their daily live. An example is May #3 Backyard Science for Families. There is a breakdown of tools, insects, and even plant investigations for families to learn about and enjoy together.
With every theme Cratty provides a list of children’s books that enhance the learning and enjoyment of the activities.
Along with the activities Cratty provides in the curriculum she also gives other resources just for parents. Such as “Ten Books to Help Parents Motivate Children of different ages to Learn”. As you know parenting is a challenge, the more knowledge you have the better off you are.
Engaging in activities with your child not only helps them learn but it strengthens the bond between you. Using “Learning at Home” can make it easier with it’s easy to follow topics and family fun activities.
