Reading Reflex and Reflex Math

Hope everyone is having an awesome time for their summer and to all of those that are still plugging away for school, good on you! We have basically given up for the year so far (I will reflect on this in a later-post).

But I wanted to share what we have been doing as far as math additions and it has been going great!
We started ReflexMath. It focuses on math addition/subtraction up to 12 and multiplication/division up to 12. My one son has really taken off on it and doing super well! My other son should be at multiplications and hit a wall. We have him started on addition and subtraction now and he is doing great again!

Find Reflex math HERE

In conversations on a Yahoo Group I am apart of there was mention of Reading Reflex. I had never heard of it and did some research on it.

It is on Sale now, so great price for Canadians! But, it looks awesome...many pyscho-education consultants do recommend learning its practices and reading this book. It is on my books-to-read List and can't wait to get my hands on it!

Happy Learning!

Using Orton Gillingham at home!

So today I am going to talk about how to use your regular curriculum and turn it into an OG method of learning....

Here we have the SING SPELL READ and WRITE Kindergarten Book 2 of the set. Instead of just learning the flat letter and manipulating them here like they have it, we take it further and create the words using clay. pulling the hat letters out that are flat and then creating the 3D visual with clay; my Dyslexic son was able to recognize his first real word and say it. 

Which letters was he looking at? The 3D ones!!!!
They make a huge difference!

We also do rice sand and letters. We say the letter, write the letter in the sand and say its' sound!
Very helpful...very OG!

Here are some great resources for at home that I have compiled for you already:

New Book :D

Ok, so this technically doesn't have anything to do with Homeschooling...however, because I am Dyslexic and I wrote a book...I think that says something?

Plus, I am just super ecstatic about my new book cover...that I had to share it lol!

What do you think?

So Dyslexics can write books...if they have good editors :D

Happy Learning!

The Brainy Bunch:Homeschool Family sends 7 kids to college by age12 !!

I am not sure if any of her children struggle with would be interesting to know if that is the case with some. They typically focus on an interest-based learning environment and I think that is soo good for the Dyslexic learner. We might not be able to achieve what they have done, but we can certainly learn something here and take it with us as well as be encouraged!!

Happy Learning!
