How to Get Your Child off the Refrigerator and on to Learning

Retail Price: $13.99
I was immediately drawn to this book – out of desperation of needing as much information as possible to work with MY highly spirited child. Carol Barnier’s book How to Get Your Child off the Refrigerator and on to Learning: Homeschooling Highly Distractable, ADHD, or Just Plain Fidgety Kids consists of ten chapters and two appendixes. Carol starts with a basic description of the child/ren she will be referring to in the remainder of the book. She talks A LOT about manipulatives and finding other ways to teach other than “copy and trace this” and “1 + 2 = 3″ ~ which simply do NOT work with highly spirited children. She not only talks about these things in a general sense – she actually provides exact example and reproducibles! (I personally REALLY enjoyed the part about teaching letters, phonics and reading! I can’t wait to try this with P!)
In her usual easy-to-read manner, Carol has provided a wonderful resource for parents of children who do not want to sit still! If you need ideas, this book has them!
I am really excited to be able to offer one copy to one of my readers! Enter below…
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
