The students I tutor prefer using a whiteboard over pen and paper. A whiteboard is easy to erase, so mistakes disappear with a quick swipe; there are no lingering reminders of the errors. I had the chance to play with this combination television/tablet/whiteboard last night and I am impressed. It links to your device (tablet, phone, etc.) and to your apps like Evernote, and it can be used as a really fun, interactive whiteboard. It makes practicing writing entertaining! If you’re looking for a new television this holiday season, you might want to check this one out. Here is a video review of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpLQUotlLuw
Having a passion can build a child’s self-esteem and it can encourage a child with dyslexia to practice reading. This is an interesting article about helping a child to find their passion. Page 2 of the article is especially helpful.
Many thanks to the students who attended the Dyslexic Kids Support Group last night! In addition to our regular monthly meetings, we have added fun field trips and activities each month including pottery making, laser tag and kayaking. We even have community service projects scheduled, like making reading rulers to distribute to young struggling readers in need. It’s going to be a great year! ~Scott
