– As Dr. Seuss once said “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Every year at the beginning of March, children across the country kick-off National Reading Month by celebrating the birthday of the beloved Dr. Seuss and the many characters immortalized in children’s books across the globe.
But why wait until March to celebrate the joy of reading? Kumon, the world’s largest after-school math and reading program, is offering 50 percent off registration for its reading program at participating learning centers nationwide from February 1 – March 15.
“These results translated into a self-esteem boost that I didn’t anticipate,” Ms. Goldman said.
Teachers are recommending students who can benefit from Kumon’s instruction and, with parent involvement, are making the enrichment center an official partner in the learning process.
“The idea is not for Kumon students to be ‘tutored’ per se but to ‘self-propel’ through the material,” says center director Naomi Sazuki…
Even if your child prefers roving work stations to a dedicated desk, identify appropriate study spots and make sure she has all necessary supplies. “Try to pick the quietest areas in your home that will have as few distractions as possible,” advises Rima Muth from the national math and reading enrichment program Kumon.
