“The Golden Spiral,” Mathematics: Book Four

“The Golden Spiral,” Mathematics: Book Four

We are excited about our fourth book in our Mathematics One Set going “live” on April 1, 2021. Zoey, P.B., and Polly learn about The Golden Ratio and its designs in nature and creations. They continue to learn about friendship and the importance of family on their journeys.

Even before they’re born, babies learn to recognize their parents’ voices. Reading to your baby before birth and beyond, even for just a few minutes a day, exposes them to language, and the comfort of your voice.

Healthline.com states, “Babies and young children are sponges that soak in practically everything in their environments. It’s true! Even during storytime, their minds are at work, taking in all the language they hear and lessons the characters learn. Reading to your child — at any age — will boost their brain development, your bond, and so much more. And all it takes is a few books, motivation, and a little time.”

We’re excited about the fourth book in our Mathematics One Set going “live” on April 1, 2021. Zoey, P.B., and Polly learn about The Golden Ratio and its designs in nature and creations made by hands and imaginations. They continue to learn about friendship and the importance of family on their journeys.

Reading to a Child (Part Two)

Children’s Books: Where a child’s mind and imaginings Blossom & BLOOM!

Ed Decker, Rewireme.com, wrote the following reasons why reading to a child is important.

6. It builds language skills. According to Reading Is Fundamental, an organization devoted to promoting literacy, ‘Children learn to love the sound of language before they even notice the existence of printed words on a page.’ Being read to helps build listening skills and concentration, both very important for social interaction. Reading aloud also familiarizes children with the language of books, which is not the same as what they hear on TV or in daily conversations. Books are written with a more formal structure that helps program the brain to be more receptive to learning, especially in the classroom.

7. It establishes reading as something that’s fun, not a chore. When the reader shows excitement, it enlivens the storytelling so it’s even more of a treat for kids. This fun factor can make it a lot easier for children to accept and embrace the reading that will be required of them in school.”

8. “Recent research into the development and acquisition of early literacy skills has conclusively shown that rhythm and rhyme play a hugely important role in literacy development. This is because children’s early literacy skills are about listening and speaking rather than reading and writing. These first two skills are the bedrock foundation for the latter, and create much stronger ability in the latter if ingrained deeply and early on.”

Your Special Time with a Child

What are the keys to building a strong relationship with your children? We’d love to hear your ideas or experiences you’ve shared with children. These are from my mom.

1) Leaving a special note by their beds at night with a simple encouraging thought or memory. 2) Making cupcakes with them … letting them frost each cupcake with colorful frosting and as many sprinkles as the cupcake can hold (or not hold). 3) Reading bedtime stories that encourage their imaginations. 4) Making snowmen or snow angels. 5) Drawing and coloring a scene from their imagination. 6) Adding glitter to every picture (yes, I know some of you don’ like glitter or cleaning up glitter. But my mom loves it. “Who wouldn’t love something that sparkles?” I’m not a fan, but my cousins loved it. 7) Creating a family time capsule and burying it for someone to uncover a hundred years from now. 8) Creating your own kaleidoscope. 9) Sharing stories from your grandparents and great grandparents. 10) Painting stones with designs.

“So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall.”

This wonderful quote is by Roald Dahl, the author of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. One way to inspire your children is to read to and with them.

Reading develops your child’s imagination while providing a window into our world and through the universe and back. Your child can learn from the brightest and most creative people living over many centuries who have written their thoughts, dreams, and imaginings.

Cherish books and spending time reading with your child. Read, read, and read to and with your child and share your books. Spend time at the library and visit bookstores. Surround your children with books, read to them, and they will love to read and learn.
