Growing Successful Readers

 

Growing readers successfully is at the top of every mom’s priority list.  This episode from the Planning a Successful Roadschool Year series puts the topic front and center. Kimberly Travaglino, co-founder of Fulltime Families, calls in from the west cost from her beautiful coastal location. Mary Beth Goff, the Road Trip Teacher, refers to her call-in location from the gulf coast of Southwest Florida. Tips from this broadcast come from the traveling mamas’ rolling homeschools while living full-time in a RV.

Listeners get bonus tips from this season’s  series sponsor, Time4Learning. The comprehensive K-12 online curriculum is a favorite from the Roadschool Moms Approved resources and used by both KT and MB in their own roadschools. Language arts along with LA extensions are favorite lessons from Time4Learning from this Roadschool 101 crew.

On this special episode, Stephanie Simpson, from Explore with Usborne, shares her recommendations for growing readers from every season including:

  • Emerging Readers
  • Early Readers
  • Fluent Readers
  • Expert Readers

How is this possible? Hit the replay to hear the fulltime RVing mama trio talk about their favorite reading development tip: family read aloud time. All three veteran homeschooling moms agree that including read aloud time in homeschool days is a benefit to all ages of readers. The Road Trip Teacher talks about a specific situation with the developing reader in her household and what she did to solve the issue.

Family read-aloud time is a great way to ignite the spark of curiosity for independent readers. If a plane enthusiast is in the midst, find a book set in the World War II time period. This teaches historical information and provides an introduction to the reader on fighter planes. Have kids that are enthralled in the prairie life era? Introduce the Little House series from the Prairie Life book club or start your next read-aloud session with Little House in the Big Woods. It’s all about listening to the nature of your kids and designing their surroundings with subjects or ideas to help them grow.

In conclusion, this Roadschool Moms episode wraps up with the dynamic duo mention of Morning Time. This is their favorite element to the roadschool day. Further, Mary Beth refers to the Morning Time plans she is working on to share with other moms from the Learning Shoppe over at Road Trip Teacher. Kimberly reminds listeners that Morning Time is not complicated. As a matter of fact, it is a simple process. The RSM team agrees that their favorite recommendation for a Morning Time starting point is from Holly Giles. For more details on that idea, hit the replay on the podcast about Morning Time by Nature.

Guiding independent learners is a challenge. Moreover, keeping an independent student interested and learning is another part of the picture. This over-the-road team with 30+ years of mom-experience highlights ways to accomplish these goals by training roadschoolers in these areas:

  • Self-Motivation

  • Responsibility

First of all, hone in on these characteristics and help your kiddos help themselves. Independent learning is the greatest gift you will ever give to your homeschooler.
