BRAINSAREFUN FEARLESS FRIDAY BLOG – Bright Futures With Reading and Math – Friday October 25, 2013


– from Rory Donaldson, teacher

How do we want our kids to feel about reading and math? We want them to feel successful, "I can do it!"

So kids experience this feeling I'm releasing a new free series of Brainsarefun white papers. The first is a redesign of an old chestnut, "Homework, A Cruel Hoax." This single activity is responsible for more school failure and yelling at home than any other single activity. How does homework help kids feel successful with reading and math?

Here are some recommendations, in a brand-new format, that you'll find easier to share with teachers and other parents I think you'll enjoy it. Be sure to pass it on and let me know how I can help.
