Our Children’s Reading Skills – under the microscope!

Posted on

A recent newspaper article stated –  “Busy parents wish they had more time to read with their kids but are struggling to find the spare minutes and energy each day to give them the crucial one-on-one attention. Experts warn that children who missed out on core literacy skills from learning to love books at a young age could be left lagging behind their classmates in their later school years”.

A senior lecturer and early childhood teacher from Macquarie University’s Institute of Early Childhood said, “parents sharing a book with their children was exceptionally valuable for their future reading and writing skills”.

Further studies show very clearly that introducing books and reading to our children at an early age is the core of sound literacy skills.

This article by Sheryl Rogers, Director of Books from Birth of Middle Tennessee, is a must read. She highlights the following points and confirms that “reading to your child is incredibly beneficial, no matter how young the child is”.

  • School Preparation
  • Vocabulary Development
  • Education Advancement
  • Passion for Books
  • Stress Management

Dr Charles Margerison has researched many aspects of reading and ways to entice more interest in this activity. An activity that once was the core of family life in most homes all over the world.

Oh dear!

Text Albert-Einstein-Quote-300x183

Its here!

What do you do about over-use of technology in your home? You can make a difference within your own family.

  • Set sensible and fair boundaries eg no texting at meal times
  • Encourage other activities…and yes! you should join in too!
  • Reward and praise efforts
  • Find ways to show your family that it’s not a ‘parent’ thing, but rather a social behaviour that has got out of hand

Whilst we do not agree of course with every word Einstein said, it does provoke thoughts about how technology interferes with some social aspects of our lives. We need to embrace our relationships without mobile phones constantly interrupting!

  • Here are some articles by Dr Charles Margerison that you will find encouraging and informative. Click on the links highlighted.

Will You Read This?

It is often said that children do not read as much as their parents because TV and computer games take up more of their time. As a result, many people feel that reading skills need to be improved. How can we improve reading skills?

How Students Learn from Amazing People Avatars

All technology is not bad! In fact, we can learn a lot from how technology has advanced in the classroom and business. Dr Margerison had been searching for a method, a technique, and a tool, that engaged students.  He has since developed this educational innovation called a BioView® avatar. This is short for biographical interview and is presented in the form of an avatar video.

Learning from Amazing People

Our children can learn from others who succeeded. Those who discovered their special talent and developed it. Our aim is to encourage students and adults to do likewise by understanding how amazing people lived and worked. See how Dr Margerison has changed how we can learn from these amazing contributors to our world through unique Bioviews®.

It’s about Time!

The phrase, ‘it’s about time’ has been around for centuries. Time is a means of measuring inputs and outputs. Time can be converted into something of value.  Therefore, as a commodity, it is an asset that is of great value to individuals and organizations, who do not wish to see time wasted or squandered. How can we use our time more effectively?

NOW MEET THE MAN WHO SAID:

“I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.”

Click HERE and view his amazing BioView® by Dr Charles Margerison with your children and students.

CLASS DISCUSSION:

  • Once your class has gone though this article, open up discussions about how we can help each other to be more responsible with the use of technology, but in particular, mobile phone use
  • Ask them to be honest – what would they do if they had children of their own?
  • Have the class make suggestions on large posters and place around the room

Letter to Coco

Gabrielle Dorziat

 May 1912

My dear Coco,

I thoroughly enjoyed our day together last week. That hat, my goodness darling, that hat I modeled for you? I must have it!  All my friends are dying to see your next creations. My dear, they are waiting with great fervor to buy up all those beautiful hats. What am I to do? Ah, I must simply make you my exclusive milliner!

Dearest Coco, what is that creative little mind of yours dreaming up today? All my friends are saying that you will be famous one day! Maybe one day people all over the world will be talking about you. Maybe women will be wearing not just your hats, but dresses, coats, lingerie or maybe fragrances and bags and…oh my dear, I could go on and on.

Well my dear, I must go now. I am so exhausted from my theatre performance last night. It was a full house and we received a standing ovation.

Ps. I have popped in a little photo of me from the magazine in that gorgeous hat! I look quite stunning don’t you think?
