Good morning! Can you share tips on how to differentiate for different ages? My daughter is almost 4 and my son is 2.
Nikolai Pizarro

Do you have specific things you want differentiations with?

So with the letter sounds. She'll master them quicker. I know he'll learn through exposure but I don't want to overwhelm him
Tiffany
05:02
maybe I'm overthinking

Meredith & Preston here. We are just starting to work on lower case letter sounds with my almost 4 year old. Starting from C, M, A, T. How do I parallel this to starting to write? Try those four letters?
Preston Lewellen
07:36
And do while reading, do we focus on those letters in the text?
Tiffany

I never taught my 4 year old to write letters and he’s able to write them all from memory and reading!! it’s amazing

Good morning Tricia here. I am finding that my son is trying to read words that he sees in his environment. He uses the skill of segmenting but he uses the words he knows from memory.

we’ve been working on the sound “e” this week and my son keeps saying the letter name. I’m worried we confused him and he’s struggling to unlearn.
Tricia

he likes to segment
Preston Lewellen

Just following up on the phonological awareness, can you discuss further how to develop they are hearing the sounds when we read to them?

Hello Everyone. Nikolai this is very helpful. Any recommendations for Math focused programs that you can recommend/suggest.
Preston Lewellen

You spoke about about sight words being memorization, what place do they have in literacy development?
Judith Marie B.

What is the name of the Power book that you mentioned during our session on Thursday.
Judith Marie B.
51:47
You might need to do a Math session!!!
Judith Marie B.
52:47
Pleaseeeeee do!!!
Preston Lewellen
01:01:24
Can you discuss visual literacy skills and math? We have been working on math being iterative (+1 building block) and exhibiting patterns (2+1=1+2)
Emely R.
01:05:03
do you switch off days in terms of teaching math and literacy concepts or just make it all a part of each day?
Emely R.
01:08:30
I do too much lol this course has taught me to chill
Emely R.
01:10:29
yes I’ve noticed since I’ve slowed down this week he is internalizing much more
Preston Lewellen
01:11:24
How do we differentiate wanting to play versus working on literacy skills? It can vary between child when they want to focus. How do we make it feel less like a chore?
Emely R.
01:21:38
we got the dry erase board and my son is loving learning letter sounds now! he erases it and waits for me to rewrite it so he can say it. that was a really helpful strategy towards making learning fun again and getting his attention!

I had this screaming match with my 12 year old last night.
Judith Marie B.
01:22:36
Got it!!! When you build the work is easy!!!! Got itttttt!!!

they will have the foundation, but traditional education will try to continue challenging them with new problems. How do we prepare them for those challenges, when its really hard and have to focus on connecting the dots?
Emely R.
01:26:40
it sounds like by building capacity at home we insulate them from the challenges of traditional education or at least I hope. I’m so anxious about my son starting pre-K especially the more I’m learning about how developmentally inappropriate practices are.

just wanted to share that we watched “The Neverending Story” last night and I was so excited to talk about visualization after bc I realized how useful that movie was to cement the concept of getting “into” the story and creating mental pictures for the words were reading❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
