Family Learning: How to Help Your Children Succeed in School by Learning at Home
First Word Learning Systems, Incorporated, 1997 - Family & Relationships - 364 pages
The activities in this book will help parents supplement and encourage their child's classroom learning as well as emphasize the importance of learning as a family unit. The lessons are divided into the following groups: language, mathematics, science, geography and astronomy, history, the world, and character development. Both kids and parents will enjoy and be challenged by educational lessons such as determining the chemistry of a candle flame, playing family Scrabble, celebrating historic events, or having family read-alouds. Family Learning shows that there is a difference between schooling and learning, and demonstrates specific things parents can do to dramatically impact their child's education.
