A Helpful Resource

Heard of AERO? It stands for “Alternative Educational Resources Ontario”. I received, on loan, for free, 9 books on CD and download. Students will use the digital book, along with the hard copy, to complete age appropriate book reports, etc. and hopefully cultivate a love of books! I used two last year and they were such a hit that I am really excited about my growing digital library!

I think people underestimate the benefits of digital books. Books experienced this way not only develop a love of books but also increase vocabulary, build comprehension skills, increase empathy for different characters and help the listener understand story structure.

Since I have been reading about executive function I found this checklist interesting.

In fact, the newsletter from The National Center for Learning Disability has many great links including Tips For Talking to Your Child About Being Distracted and Unfocused and 13(Better) Questions to Ask Your Child About School.
