Do you want to experience the satisfaction of supplementing your kids' education? Do you want your kids to be prepared for grades K-20?   If you said "yes" to any of the questions above, it would be critical for you to be a part of the demonstrations and lectures that this course will provide.

Welcome to 'Helping Your Kids with their School Work'.

So, what is this course all about?

Let's get your kids on the same page with your about their school work!

Through animation and presentation software, this course will concentrate on methods for developing needed tools for kids' study through demonstrations. Children everywhere need sound training in the reading, writing, and arithmetic areas, but the training needs to be given in creative and interesting ways so that the children will want to learn. Some people may think that it is impossible to plan innovative programs with a small amount of money, but there are vast resources available from existing materials at little or no expense. 

What makes this course unique? The course will help guide busy parents in creating a supplemental home-based educational program to build-up their kids' key cognitive strategies and higher-order thinking. In developing this program, parents will be shown how their every-day interaction with their kids can help prepare them for real-world experiences in life and higher education through the following that will be defined more in this course:

  • Parents talk to their kids and try to make them learn new words and concepts.

  • Parents buy and play with toys to encourage their young children to tinker.

  • Parents travel with their kids through parks and pointing out flowers and squirrels.

Looking forward to working with you in this course by getting you and your kids on supplemental curricula to connect to their class work and homework.

Notice to encourage and increase bonding between parents and children.

Course Notice

Since most parents today are busy at their job and have little time to spend with their families, a supplemental information literacy program has to be developed for the busy parent. In developing this program, parents should be reminded how they interact with their children.

Is this the right course?

In developing this program, parents should be reminded how they interact with their children. Although most parents have talked to, traveled with, and tinkered around their young kids, they have not stopped to formalize these three T's into a teaching method.

Is this course covering the right stuff?

Professor Weldon has concentrated on information literacy methods for her clients and students for over 20 years.

Is this the right instructor?
