Dr. Beechik speaks of the “powerful, natural method” of attaining language and arithmetic skills. I think of all books I have ever read on the subjects of learning and teaching, curriculum and methods, this has been the best. While it is geared at Kindergarten to Grade three, re-reading it helps me to focus on the best environment for children to learn in, even older kids.
I have saved hundreds of dollars on curricula and programs over the years because I just keep returning to the idea of what is necessary. Love. Environment, Joy, Method. Fostering good habits.
Oh, it’s a short book, do take the time to read it.
