Math Dyslexia

Malik often experience issues with mathematics. Somehow no matter how much he tries, he struggles with the multiplication tables. We have been studying the facts for years using flash cards, songs etc.

I am aware that he has a form of Dyslexia but never thought it crossed with his math until now. It is important for math to sound interesting to him. To effectively teach I have to, adopt new techniques.

This week he practiced his 3's time table.

Teaching a Visual Learner

Do you have a visual learner? Do you ever wonder how you can teach a visual learner? Well today I am going to show you one idea that can be modified for any child. With all the technology out today most homes have a camera phone, iPad or tablet with a camera. Why not record whatever you want to teach your visual learner. My son loves to raise and eat early. So I decided to record for him how to make some of his favorite breakfast cereals in the microwave. He owns an iPad so after I record the videos I send it to his device. This is a great way for him to learn life skills. So pull out those cameras and get to recording.

Older Beginner Reader


Finding the right books for an older beginner reader can be challenging. You want to provide them with choices that are not to juvenile but yet simple enough for them to read. After many visits to our local library I finally found the perfect ready to read series for my son. The series is called "Henry and Mudge". What I like about this series is it offers complex stories with varied sentence structure with the bonus of pictures. I was also able to find book discussion questions to go along with each book.


If you have a struggling or late reader don't be discouraged. Remember every child is different. Our journey to read has been tough at times. But seeing my child finally identifying words makes it all worth it.
