I recently had the chance to try Reading Eggs, an online program that helps kids learn to read and/or improve their reading skills during a free trial. As I have a Kindergartener this year, it was perfect timing!
Even in the parents section, Reading Eggs holds the upper hand. After children have taken their assessments, an approximate reading age is given, and it updates after they complete more lessons successfully. The phonics skills and sight words that children know are also listed, making it easy to follow your child and encourage them outside of the program.
Lessons are simple, yet effective. At my daughter's level, one of the lessons she is given is to choose which picture contains a certain letter sound. It works so much better doing this on the computer, versus doing it in a book, because there have been several times when working in a workbook that neither of us can figure out what they are trying to convey with a given picture. On the computer, it can verbally tell you what the picture is of - no more guessing!
If you are interested in checking out this great program with your child, you can get a FREE trial!

"My son is having the same issue but he is only 3 1/2 years old. He has been potty trained for almost a year and has never had an accident. Well, we brought our baby girl home in Feb. and that's when it started. We understand why he is having them but it is becoming very frustrating. We have been patient and have started to remind him to go potty....
The other day, my 5 year old daughter, Shari did something she hasn't done in well over two years. She wet her pants. While it really surprised me, I knew that it was important to handle it delicately. She is at a point now that things like this have the real potential to shame and embarrass her.
This year, Easter falls on April 20. I love Easter! It's one of my favorite holidays. There's so much fun stuff to do and egg hunts are just a small part of it all. Those cheap plastic eggs have other uses too. For instance, you can use them to play Easter Egg Bingo.
Well, three months after New Years Resolutions have been made, I'm betting that I'm not the only one who has been struggling with their 'losing weight/getting healthier' goal. I think the hardest part of any diet is just getting started.
I feel like it's been a really long time since I've shared a recipe with you all. The 'Taco Chop' is something that my husband came up with one day when he was playing around with making dinner. It was delicious and I knew you all would love to try something new also!
