Learning grammar rules can be difficult and confusing. My Miss 9 is having troubles understanding and remembering the differences between verbs, nouns and adjectives. To be honest off the top of my head I couldn’t answer her question of “What is an adjective?”.
When I had the parent teacher interviews at the end of last term her teacher mentioned it would benefit her to have some extra help at home to help her understand. I always spend time with the kids giving them maths problems while driving in the car, doing spelling tests while preparing dinner and doing times tables as they go to bed. So I am all for helping her at home.
I created these posters which I have laminated and stuck on the back of the toilet door for all the kids to look at and review. They have their fraction and multiplication posters on the wardrobe doors in the bedrooms to view while lying in bed, quotes and maps on the walls of the toy room for while they are watching TV, so why not have something on the back of the door while they are spending 10 minutes longer than they should on the toilet It’s a great space for them to look, ponder and learn. I plan on changing the posters every few weeks to something different to help them get a better understanding of what they are learning at school.
The posters are available for purchase from my shop. With a special offer of 20% off for one week only (until 17th May 2012).
