How To Use Anagrams To Improve Spelling

There are several approaches to learning spelling, and if you’re having problems with one method, try another. Whether you’re an adult working on spelling improvement for yourself, or helping a child learn to spell, remember that there are many ways to learn.

"Kids with hydrocephalus typically have problems understanding language ........." | rosh_vettiveloo_sri_rafelsia | Scoop.it

Many of the calls we receive are about behaviour. Unfortunately, as parents, our ability to manage our child’s behaviour seems to be one of those things that identifies us as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ parents, which is why when things seem to be going wrong it is often distressing.

 

The first thing to remember is that all parents have difficulties with their child’s behaviour sometimes and the second is that though we can’t control children’s behaviour, we can manage it.

 

*** How hydrocephalus may impact on learning and behaviour ***

 

Children with hydrocephalus typically have problems with understanding language, concentration, short term memory and processing information. All of these, potentially, can have an impact on behaviour.

 

If you can ‘t remember instructions then you won’t be able to carry them out. If you have trouble transferring knowledge to new situations itmay be that you can do something in one place but not another. If you don’t understand jokes your friends may think you‘re a bit ‘odd’.

What Types of E-Books Are Best for Young Readers?

What Types of E-Books Are Best for Young Readers? | rosh_vettiveloo_sri_rafelsia | Scoop.it
Could e-books actually get in the way of reading? In a study looking at students’ use of e-books created with Apple’s iBooks Author software, the Schugars discovered that the young readers often skipped over the text altogether, engaging instead with the books’ interactive visual features.

We should REALLY be paying attention to this, folks. I realize that one should not put all faith in a single study but when even one study shows that reading comprehension DROPPED when using electronic books it is something of which we should take notice. Even more telling is the young readers skipping "text altogether, engaging instead with the books' interactive visual features." Don't get me wrong - I see a place for electronic resources but schools putting all their eggs into this basket are going to (IMHO) come to regret the decision.
