When Olivia was attending public school, I felt like she wasn’t getting enough help in learning how to write. Since the Common Core came out, they no longer taught was was necessary in the world but only taught what was going to be on the end of the year tests. It was heart breaking to see Olivia struggle so much and to see her not learn what she really needed to learn. So when I was asked to do a review with Here to Help Learning
I jumped on the opportunity. I have since learned that teaching how to write a paragraph or learning to write an essay is easier than the public schools ever taught her.
Here to Help Learning
is an online program that has not only videos to teach you on the proper way to write a paragraph but also has worksheets that you can print out and give to your child to help with them learning. We watched several lessons on Flight 1 Paragraph Writing, already together and in one of the lessons it really to understand how an essay or paragraph is written. I have even used several of the lessons to give her a homework assignment to help her learn more. The videos are very informational and yet fun for both of us to complete and help her understand what is going on. Here to Help Learning not only has different Flight’s for you to learn but it also has Literature to complete with your student as well. The book that we have and are going to start reading soon is “Island of the Blue Dolphins” which is a book that I read when I was Olivia’s age. It just so happened to be one of my favorite books! I love this literature information that Here to Help Learning has provided and it will make my life a lot easier for Olivia to understand the book as we read it together. I love how the videos are really fun and make the learning and reading of the book even more fun! You can’t go wrong with a fun book and fun literature to learn about. Plus it gives the parent worksheets for yourself and worksheets for the students too. How cool is that.
Some other resources that Here to Help Learning
has available are How to Make an Essay Folder, and printable resources.
