How to Inspire Children to Love Reading & Memorizing Poems

Inspire your Children to Love Reading by telling them good stories. Good stories inspire good questions. Read stories to them with morals, values, lessons, overcoming difficulties, strategies, analyzing. Thinking, in other words.

When we read to our children, we must not read monotone. That is boring even to a grown person. Just imagine how boring monotone reading is to children. We must read with voice inflections, excitement, rhythm. This helps keep the children’s attention.

Oral Reading is an Art form we must master to Inspire our children to Love Reading.

*—>> How to Inspire Children to Memorize Poems

Teach your children little short poems way before they start to read. It is best to have them memorize poems that rhyme. It sticks in their minds better. We must build up the children’s memories.

Later on…have them recite the poems back to you. Have them memorize a poem a week. Or a poem every two weeks. We can have them do this right after they learn a few words. It does not even matter if they only have a few words in their vocabulary. So what if they are still just baby talking.

If they learn a poem a week, that’s 52 poems a year. If they learn a poem every 2 weeks, that’s 26 poems a year. If they learn a poem a month, that’s 12 poems a year. Use your own discretion.

We must must not underestimate what our children have the capacity to learn. Our children can handle pretty much anything we work with them with.

Take Charge of Your Post, Dear Parents. Parents are the 1st Teachers.

Learn & Teach Speed Subtracting, Fractions & Geometry in Less than 5 Minutes

* Teach real young children how to subtract through adding. 

For example: 5 – 3. Tell them they are on 3 already, & count to 5. When they get to 5, ask them what did they need to get to 5. Tell them it is OK to use their fingers starting out. Give them another one: 7 – 2. Tell them they are at 2. Count on from there. When they get to 7, ask them how many fingers to get to 7. They will get faster the more you practice with them. Much faster counting forwards than backwards.

* Teach your Children Whole, Fractions & Geometry by Revealing, they are the same thing with a Different Name. The tools for this technique…Circle, Dollar Bill & Pennies.

Circle (Whole)—>> 360 degrees=$1 bill (Whole) =100 pennies (Whole)

1/2 Circle—>> Diameter 
(180 degrees)=1/2 Dollar=50 cents/pennies….half is half…it does not matter if it is Geometry or Arithmetic. Geometric Term for half of Circle is Diameter. Arithmetic Term for half of $1 is 50 Cents. In others words, same game with another name. Don’t get confused with labels. Just learn the label names for the type of math you are doing.

1/4 Circle=90 degrees 
(Right Angle)=1/4 Dollar=25 cents.
