or Too Busy to Learn?
Are your children auditory learners? Do you have children that need hands-on activities in able to learn? How about those boys that must be “busy” either by hand or body and CANNOT sit still to learn? Then I would suggest audio learning! The amount of free resources for audiobooks is outstanding. I could probably create an entire blog around them, but for now will stick to a post.
READ and educate yourself about how children learn, your teaching style, and how boys/auditory learners are different. A few books I would reccomend are:
Bringing up Boys by Dr. Dobson
The Way They Learn by Cynthia Ulrich Tobias
