Family Learning: How to Help Your Children Succeed in School by Learning at Home offers practical, simple activities that parents can do with their children (grades K-8) to help them learn. These “learning adventures” provide real-world applications for concepts taught in school, as well as enrichment for any homeschool curriculum. Family Learning promotes the idea of making learning an unexceptional part of everyday family life. With these fun, easy learning activities—which can be shared in the kitchen, in the backyard, in the car, on vacations— all parents, no matter what income or educational level, can help their children develop an interest in learning and develop a richer understanding of the world around them. “Even a little Family Learning,” says author and educator William F. Russell, Ed.D., “will help children succeed in school and in life.” Family Learning identifies hundreds of library books (all with Dewey classifications) and other free or inexpensive learning resources, and it provides over a hundred web links to videos that help parents explain and demonstrate concepts in all school subjects including character development. For the parent who asks, “How can I help?” this is the perfect place to begin.
