A Holy Experience:  How to make this month amazing! | HCS Learning Commons Newsletter | Scoop.it


What you know by heart — is what your heart really knows.

And the crazy things is, right at the first of the month: what the heart knows by heart is all that can calm a heart.

Direct a heart. Strengthen a heart.

So I’m thinking: What does a heart know by heart?  

So March blows in —  and this heart here stammers out a recitation of Romans 1:1-17 of The Romans Project:

Join in the March dare project with a memory commitment project.

"While working on this list of iPad apps for learning spelling I came across over a hundred app which are all supposedly geared towards helping kids and young learners with their spelling but going through them I came out with only 25 and the rest was just a waste of time and effort.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 12, 2013 3:15 PM

This site developed by Moms of Dyslexics provides a set of apps that can support dyslexics and struggling readers. As a Mom of an adult dyslexic, I want to thank these Moms who have created this site for families that have a child with dyslexia.

 

Here are the apps they have reviewed on this site:

> Sound Literacy-$24.99 Sound Literacy can be used in conjunction with any curriculum that emphasizes phonemic awareness, phonological processing, systematic phonetic instruction, or word building with ‘meaningful word parts’.

 

> Dyslexia Quest- $1.99: The Yeti Master will take your child on an adventure while testing working memory, processing speed, visual memory, phonological awareness, auditory memory, and sequencing skills.

 

> Montessori Crosswords-$2.99: Highly rated and based on Montessori learning methods, this app will aid in the development of reading and spelling skills through phonemic awareness.

 

> Spell Trekking-Free:  Your child will learn to spell while trekking through space on the S.S. Spell Trek.

 

> Letter Quiz-Free and Full Version-$1.99: Consists of four games to help your child learn letter recognition and writing practice.

 

> Dyslexic Like Me-$1.99:  The purpose of Dyslexic Like Me is to teach the child what dyslexia is and about successful people who also have dyslexia.

 

> See Read Say-$1.99:  The visual nature of a dyslexic can make learning sight words difficult.

 

> Phonics Genius-Free:  Phonetic awareness is essential to reading and this app takes it to a new level.  The app contains thousands of words grouped into 225 phonic categories.
