How can you set your child on the right path and bolster your own knowledge? Last week I wrote about educational activities that your could do with your child at home and in the community.
This week I want to give you some tools to help you engage your child in the learning process.
Whether you check them out from the library or buy them, these books are a good place to start:
- The Well Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer
- The Core Knowledge Foundation’s: What Your ____ Grader Needs to Know by E.D. Hirsch
- The Educated Child by William Bennett and Chester E. Finn, Jr. is a comprehensive book that reinforces the Core Knowledge Foundation’s ideas.
- Honey For a Child’s Heart by Gladys Hunt or Honey for a Teen’s Heart, also by Gladys Hunt
- The Read-Aloud Handbook By Jim Trelease
- The Marva Collins Way by Marva Collins
- Values: Lighting the Candle of Excellence : A Practical Guide for the Family by Marva Collins
- The Bible, I personally believe that this is the most important resource you could need in your home--even if you are an Atheist. This little library has shaped most of western thought and still influences non-believers and believers all over the world.
