Many families turn to extra curricular activities to provide what their kids need more of. After school enrichment programs can give these learners the things they’re missing out on during regular school hours. But how do you choose the right one for your child?
For the last 3 weeks of summer break, our visual kids need to brush up on math facts! For most visual kids, math is not a favorite subject. As I mentioned in my book, Being Visual, our right brain kids are great with the conceptual side of math but memorizing facts and taking tests really rattles them.
Drawing is a fun, low key way for your kids to practice their handwriting skills without the pressure that school can sometimes put on them. Watch and learn how fun and easy it is to draw as Bette Fetter, demonstrates how to draw a cute cartoon Bumblebee with simple step by step instruction.
I was recently adding activities in the calendar for my grandson when I realized that we have only 5 WEEKS of summer vacation left! Whether you have more or less time to your summer vacation, the fact is that those hard earned academic skills, especially reading, writing and math, require constant reinforcement throughout the summer. Let’s start with some writing practice.
Whether they are beginners or just need to remind their hands how to hold onto a pencil, coloring is a great way for your visual learner to practice using those muscles required for legible handwriting. Young Rembrandts is joining the coloring craze with their own beautifully designed and drawn coloring pages.
