Wondering why we choose the books we do? Or why this technique work so well in engaging your child with their books? Read on for more information on why the BZY Reader system is so successful!
The books are chosen from a large selection of children’s books that are age specific. I look for books that provide an interesting story or opportunity to build learning through the theme of the book. So in effect, I take a teacher’s perspective on a book and build activities that will enhance your child’s learning.
Children learn by being involved with their world. Using their five sense to accumulate information and then build on prior information. The world is wide open to them and learning comes naturally. When I first began teaching literature based learning was the popular way to teach various skills. There is a natural sequence to taking a story and interacting with it, using their senses and prior knowledge to build understanding. So the theme of the book is extended into math activities, language arts activities, science, etc. This method of teaching is still used in schools today, but a parent doesn’t necessarily have access to this information or materials.
The boxes are created to give parents the opportunity to share learning activities with their child without the extra time needed to find a good book, think up activities, and find the materials. It’s all there for you as well as other resources to delve a little deeper. Time flies when you are raising children. The boxes offer a moment to stop and enjoy your child’s childhood and the wonder of learning new things.
