Our objective today is to help you be able to assess your student's understanding and concept acquisition daily using different closure techniques that will help you gauge where they are at in an instant.   Today you will learn how to   Check for understanding. Create the opportunities for your child to draw conclusions from the lesson and for your more quiet thinkers to have the opportunity to articulate their ideas and thoughts. Foster more reflective thinking Reflect on your own teaching and lessons and not beat yourself up!  Exit Tickets  Are a formative assessment tool to provide the educator with an informal measure of how their students are doing. Students are also able to reflect, think critically, and express their thoughts on what they have just learned.  Reflection   This gives students the time to process what they have learned and the time to think about what they have been thinking about. This also helps the teacher know if the students has a clear picture of the what was learned.  Formative assessments some examples are:  Ask them to write one thing that stuck with them from the lesson.  Ask them to verbally answer one question about the day's lesson before they can leave the class.  Have them create a tweet.  Have them create a flipgrid.  Reflections can be either a formative or summative assessment tool  Examples are  Journals Have them give a classmate an affirmation of the work they did that day.  Asking questions like this one:   Any ideas as to why we didn't get very far in today's lesson?  Think of some exit ticket that you could use in your lesson closure?  Think creatively Exit tickets are short. Exit tickets can be daily and are informal.  What is Next!  Thank you for supporting this show by listening and sharing with friends!

By giving families the art, the visuals, and the hands-on, helps expand the child's memory. When children are given visuals to connect with what they are learning they create something educators call "brain movies." These are the pictures we make in our minds when we read. The more experiences and visuals a child has the more understanding. Hands-on learning can specifically help build the brain, can help with focus, can help with memory, can help with reading comprehension, can help with  reluctant learners, and  can help with independent learning. Call to Action  Resources:   Below Coupon: Go to tab that says coupon and Freebies and sign up for newsletter.   Trial: You can try them out for free when you avail their all access subscription plan, automatic you will have a free week.    Social Media Links  Website:   What is Next!  Thank you for supporting this show by listening and sharing with friends!

A Reading Program That Succeeds Where Other Programs Fail with Merry Marinello of AllAboutLearningPress.com
Intro  Merry Marinello gives a stellar interview and description of the Founder of All about Learning Press Marie Rippel, who had a child with severe dyslexia. They were told he would never read or write. She researched, figured out how to teach her son and also tutored kids for 20 years. She doesn’t want anyone to have to go through what they did. Merry also talks about the powerful results that this program has accomplished and Merry has a great personal testimony as well!  Top three takeaways  Many people think it needs to look like “school at home” and don’t realize how much freedom there is to teach to your child’s needs and interests, and to work at your child’s pace rather than trying to follow “grade levels.” All About Reading often succeeds where other programs fail. An example was a woman named Raquel had a daughter Katie who was struggling with learning to read. Her local school that was specifically created for children with dyslexia thought Katie's situation was hopeless and wouldn’t admit her because they didn’t think they could help her! Raquel was determined to help her and believed she was creative and capable. She found All About Reading and All About Spelling and her daughter was successful!  The founder, Marie Rippel, have a child with severe dyslexia (he is grown now). Marie and her husband were told he would never read or write. Marie researched, figured out how to teach her son and also tutored kids for 20 years after. She created All About Reading Press because Marie to this day doesn’t want anyone to have to go through what they did!  Call to Action  Resources:   Free Resources Page: Tons of free activities and how-to articles:    Placement Test:    Monthly Giveaway:   Promotions: Get 15% off on any purchase in September! Visit allaboutlearningpress.com and Enter Code AALP15 at checkout!

Sam Sorbo Education Freedom Advocate, Founder of Underground Education and Author of Words for Warriors
Intro   Sam Sorbo is an Education Freedom Advocate. She is an author, writer,  podcast host of the Sam Sorbo show. She is also an actor and producer and is known for Miracle in East Texas (2019), Andromeda (2000) and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (1995). She has been married to Kevin Sorbo since January 5, 1998 and they have three beautiful children.  Top takeaways  One foundational lesson we learn in the traditional school system is how incapable we are. One paradigm no child left behind was to support a child's learning but it has become the means by which we push children through a system unprepared for each following level which results in a child misunderstanding their own abilities.   Homeschooling is not about the 3R's Reading, Writing and Arithmetic (which by the way are not three r's). The beauty of homeschooling is that it is a joint project between parent and child, it is not just the parent as teacher or all about the student but a powerful collaboration which completely obliterates the paradigm the traditional education system puts out of they are the supreme authority.  Parents you are raising an adult, and there has been a theft of your children and we have given them over to a system that is exploiting the fact that children are easily influenced by what they see and hear  because they are just starting to form an identity in relation to what is around them, and the government and schools understand that and will shame you from becoming that influence so that they can step in and further make you feel incapable.  Call to Action  Resources:   Social Media Links  Website:   Facebook:   Instagram:   Twitter: @thesamsorbo  What is Next!  Thank you for supporting this show by listening and sharing with friends!
