Childhood memories

Papier de Norma

Who didn’t rollerblade as a kid?  Maybe some of you were rollerskaters (never achieved that…), which is, in my opinion, is harder, so, bravo!  Rollerblading was one of my favorite activities as a kid (among various kid activites: kickball, chinese jump rope, jump rope, four square…).  As I was telling you last week, a girl I tutor has a pen pal in Germany.  This pen pal was her playground buddy, the girl she jump roped with, the girl she played with.  We all remember those wonderful childhood memories!  What was your favorite games as a kid?

Police in New York City have arrested the mother of a seven-year-old boy who took a gun and ammunition to school in his rucksack.

Deborah Farley was arrested on Friday on several charges including criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say the 53-year-old’s son had taken the handgun to his Queens elementary school on Thursday.

They said it was not clear whether the boy initially knew it was in his bag.

Police said when the mother learned about the gun she rushed to school and told officials her son had a dental appointment.

The boy said he had given the weapon to a friend, at which point she alerted the principal.

The school, which has been practising for security drills since the Sandy Hook massacre, was immediately locked down.

The seven-year-old’s rucksack was searched and the semi-automatic pistol, a magazine containing ten rounds and a plastic bag with bullets in it was found.

A flare gun was found in the second boy’s bag, police said.

Many very bright children find learning to read English very hard. That can be surprising until you understand what’s going on. The truth is that their intelligence often leads them down the wrong path when they first try to read. As the text gets harder they will find progress more and more difficult. So they end up on a reading plateau, with lots of wild guessing and a collapsing self-confidence. If you guide them back onto the right path, they will usually progress fast.

There are actually multiple possible reasons for reading difficulty, but what I have described above is the most common. We call it Optilexia.

The key to getting progress with reading for a child is to understand what is causing the difficulty. That might be Optilexia or eye-tracking difficulty or Irlen Syndrome or one of the other 7 causes of difficulty we see the patterns of routinely with the children we help.

Once you understand a child’s reading difficulty, guiding the child to success usually becomes fairly easy.

So, at the heart of the Easyread System is a process of trying to understand the patterns shown by each child. We then make sure we apply the right help to get the child reading confidently. It normally takes around 6-9 months to achieve that.

It can be quite complex, but we have had years of experience helping thousands of children, so there are not many things left we have not seen! And if we don’t succeed we do not charge for our help.

Learning to read is probably the most critical educational step in every child’s life. So we focus hard on doing everything we can to make it go the right way. English is a very tricky language to learn to read, so just going with your intuition on how to help does not always work out well. One in five English-speaking children cannot read by the age of 11.
