GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comIf you have not already done so, please read the first part of this post on Child Genius.

What is the point of all of this? Why put your child through a living nightmare? If you provide instability, chaos, and negativity, then you may as well book your spot on Jerry Springer.

Those are not just actors, those people exist. I deal with them on a daily basis. I have a customer that has been in the US for many years, and is probably in her late twenties or more, yet she has never used measuring spoons or a measuring cup. How is that possible? We run into people that have been through the school system and their basic-skill level is rather appalling. It is amazing how they make it through day-to-day transactions.

This comes up daily: why do people hate math?

It is simple – they grew up in a sub-standard environment that did not place any value on learning math, or probably any other subjects for that matter. They probably grew up in the one-size-fits all mentality of so-called education. The days of only providing rote, monotonous, boring, singular teaching experiences are obsolete and do not work for a great number of kids.

In this day and age, is there really any reason why so many kids should fail basic subjects? Information is much more accessible. Now of course, you will have to do your due diligence as there is plenty of misinformation out there as well.

With all of the problems I experienced growing up, I decided the best way I could do something about the situation is to help others avoid unnecessary traps and mind fields. So, now my husband and I do research and look for great products that will help people solve tough every-day issues.

We’re creating a series of websites that provide a lot of info on the concept of whole brain teaching. We’ve come across some fabulous products that are really producing great results.

This site, BabyMath.org, focuses on early childhood education activities that are made up of early childhood education resources which are easy to use and make learning a fun-filled exciting activity. The materials in the Genius Maker Program will help babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary-school aged children efficiently use early learning activities using modern preschool software that will let you see just how smart is your baby. This program is designed to work with kids 6 months to 8 years old.

Now, if your child is struggling with spelling, then please take a look at our Spelling Activities page for a great fun way to learn how to spell and have the success that you need without having to deal with boring, repetitive activities that probably don’t work anyway.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comThe concept of introducing preschool educational toys is not new – what is new is the best way to use these early childhood education resources to get the most learning benefits from them. When kids actively interact, they get the chance to solve problems and utilise their many emerging skills. They will get the reinforcement they need and therefore they will want more. You may experience a giant awakening or a run-away train effect – just be prepared to offer them more complex activities to keep that thrust for knowledge alive.

If your children are older in grade school and can already read, then you might want to check out our Magic Squares Worksheet site. Kids can make and solve a fun math puzzle – complete instructions are provided.

We’re working on a math games site. If children think they are playing some type of games, they become much more interested. One product that will help your children ages 4-7 is the Mind Power Series. This fun book set covers Brain Power, Math Power, and English Power, using games and puzzles to teach each lesson. There are plenty of engaging activities both in the main books and in the many free bonus books. Your child will have hours of exciting things to do in this comprehensive work set.

We also have a couple of new sites that deal with memory, learning, speed reading, concentration, study skills, and more. These sites are for older children, college level students, and business people that have to be much more productive.

What is our motivation? We see the results of a poor education, or when people are forced to grow up in an environment that does not facilitate education and positive learning experiences. If more people had the benefits of a strong positive early child education they might be doing really great things to solve big problems like world peace or world hunger instead of just barely make it, living a day-to-day existence full of uncertainty.

We would like to offer practical solutions that will help people of all ages, all backgrounds, and all type of learning styles. If we can help one person be successful, then he or she will tell others, and they will also find success. Then we too will have the sense of accomplishment.

Please fill out our newsletter form. When we have new sites, new products to showcase, and info on new educational methods, we will drop you a quick line.

Thanks for your support,

Rae and Mark's Signature

PS:  We have developed a nice skill set between us. I (Rae) use my right-brain approach to figuring things out, and my husband, Mark, uses his left-brain to figure things out, although he has an extra layer to cope with as he’s also left-handed, so that could possibly add an extra wrinkle into the mix for him, but he’s figured out how to navigate and make his way through a right-handed world, so that’s good.

Together, we try to find solutions to tough problems, and although we may take slightly different pathways, typically, we somehow arrive at the same conclusion, so in that respect, our brains are synchronised and we work very well together.

Unfortunately, we come across people every single day who are massively lacking the necessary skills and clearly haven’t figured any of this out for themselves yet. For these people, it may be too late, but it’s not too late to set children off on the right track from a very early age, and we know from our own experiences that the dividends of that approach will be huge.

The programs we find and recommend are usually very reasonably priced for what you get – that’s great value for today and well into the future. If one-size truly fits all, then we wouldn’t be here. The world is diverse and we have to find ways to teach that will work for the many learning styles out there. The programs listed on our sites will give you a range of options because some of the programs may work for one of your children and not the others, you then would have to try other programs for them.

We don’t give up and neither should you. Keep trying until you find the right approach for each one of your kids. Once you crack the code like we did, so many possibilities will open up for your family. Your kids will have a purpose, they will ask you for more problem-solving activities, and they will want to delve deeper into many areas. Who knows, they may even ask for a chemistry set instead of a Play Station – well that could be wishful thinking, but once the light bulb is turned on you could see the making of a Child Genius right before your very eyes!

Spelling Activities

Click N KidsWe think the Genius Maker Program can work for most children; however, as with many things, one size does not fit all. If you have a child that has trouble with that program, then we have another program that does work for the many different types of learners.

Spelling for kids can be a real challenge, especially if the child has a learning disability such as visual dyslexia, autism, Down syndrome, and others. These children have to deal with so much in their lives they could really use expert help with spelling.

English has so many inconsistencies and quirks that parents and teachers often revisit this issue of how to improve spelling abilities in each child.

In the past, there were no easy answers, until 2003 when Click N Read-Click N Spell was developed.

This revolutionary program took boring spelling lesson plans and equally boring spelling programs and transformed them into something that children could understand and look forward to doing each and every day.

Some of you will remember the old phonics exercises while they were workable the delivery system was generally lacking and many kids would just mentally tune out. No longer is this a problem.

Teaching phonics, teaching spelling, and coming up with spelling lessons has become much simpler with the advent of the Click N Spell program. Now your child will get the spelling practice that he needs in the comforts of your home.

Montessori Philosophy

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comDuring 1907, Maria Montessori, an Italian education specialist, introduced the world to the ground-breaking theories that she had developed regarding the education of young children, and the Montessori philosophy, which would forever change the way that people thought about education, was born.

In terms of the Montessori theory – or, as it is sometimes incorrectly called, the Montessorie theory – children learn best when they are allowed to work uninterruptedly with specific practical tools that have been presented to them as part of their environment.

Through engaging in repetitive, calming work with the tools in question, these children are able to reach a state of profound tranquility, which will, in turn, facilitate learning and social interaction.

The Montessori Method, furthermore, stresses that adults should not be put in charge of children in these learning situations, that they should act as guides rather than teachers and that they should never specifically instruct the children in specific tasks.

Adults should, therefore, never interact with the children themselves, and should only interact with the children’s environment when it becomes necessary to alter their behavior.

Children can receive Montessori training in a number of different areas ranging from purely education subjects like mathematics and reading to cultural subjects based on practical life experiences.

A number of different Montessori materials have been developed to be of use during training in each of the different areas, and these materials would include things like colored blocks or boxes to teach children about colors and the ten red and blue colored “spindle-rods” that are used to facilitate Montessori math lessons. Montessori equipment is easily available and can readily be purchased – both in stores and online – so as to facilitate Montessori homeschooling.

Young children can acquire a Montessori education in one of three basic ways: they can take part in a Montessori homeschool program, they can attend a Montessori kindergarten – a school specializing solely in providing Montessori services – or they can participate in one or more Montessori courses as offered by a mainstream school.

For those parents who decide to go the Montessori at home route, Montessori supplies and Montessori toys can be considered an investment in their child’s future and can also always be re-used.

Although the philosophy does make a distinction between activities designed for children aged between birth and six years and those designed for children aged between six and twelve years, it also suggests that children of the different age groups should be allowed to work together.

The various Montessori books that are available on the subject call these different age groups the first and second planes of development and point out that children of different age groups should be encouraged to work together as younger children often learn from older ones.

When all is said and done, the basic idea behind the Montessori philosophy advocates a child’s taking charge of his own environment and molding it in ways that would result in his learning more about the world around him.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comWe like the idea of children becoming invested in their learning. We like the idea of educators helping children to see the rewards and benefits of learning. We also like to see a positive non-threatening learning environment – this is always necessary to facilitate any real learning.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comThe Montessori activities will achieve those qualities and that is wonderful; however, we strongly believe in providing children with structure. They need a way to understand boundaries and responsibility, structure provides for this.

Children without structure will fight you on many things just for the heck of it. You are the adult and you are in charge – it has to be that way. You are not out to create a best friend in your child, your main goal is to provide them with love and affection, and the best quality educational experiences available.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comThere is no reason why a child cannot succeed if you provide a positive environment, stability, consistency, and use proven teaching techniques that can and will accelerate your child’s learning in the core subjects like baby math, how to teach a child to read, photographic memory skills, etc.

All of this and a lot more can be achieved by using the Genius Maker Program. This program was conceived from the right-brain teaching methods by pioneers such as Dr. Shichida, et al.

If you like the idea of bringing out the genius in your child, then you will have a much better chance at achieving that with the Genius Maker, rather than solely relying on the Montessori Daycare system.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comWhat we’re suggesting here is to take the best characteristics of Montessori preschools and the Genius Maker Program to make your homeschooling preschool a flagship for maximum learning.

Is it worth $35 USD to make your baby a genius? You can easily do that for kids 6 months to 8 years, the program works for so-called normal children as well as for children with brain deficiencies, learning issues such as LH, Dyslexia, ADD, etc.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comNo longer will you have to worry about your child succeeding in school. You can take your child’s learning to another level – just by spending a few moments each day using this fun and motivational program.

Don’t settle for less and don’t let the low cost fool you. Get started today with an immediate download of the entire Genius Maker Package, including easy-to-use interactive core subjects using your computer system where you can change the font size and other parameters for individualized learning for each of your children.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comOrdering is on secured servers, it is lightning fast with NO shipping charges, and if for any reason you and your children are not satisfied then by all means get your money back within the 60 period.

This is a miniscule investment when you consider the implications. Your child can learn and move leaps and bounds over what you or I could ever do growing up (see more on the notion of creating a Child Genius).

How To Teach A Child To Read

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comSeveral theories have been put forward regarding how to teach a child to read, but, before choosing a particular method of how to teach to read, parents should decide two things: whether they actually want to teach baby to read before he goes to school and, if they do, how old should their baby be before they start teaching him.

There are several arguments for and against teaching children to read before they go to school. Those arguments that are in favor of teaching babies to read state that babies are quite capable of learning to recognize whole words even before they are a year old.

These arguments also state that teaching reading skills to young children before they go to school can only benefit them as studies have shown that learning reading at a young age results in increased levels of intelligence in later life.

Those that argue against enrolling extremely young children in reading programs for kids say that a child will develop the cognitive skills necessary to learn how to read only when they turn 6 or 7.

This argument does not, however, explain how those children who are actually taught how to read at an early age seem to be able to do so extremely competently.

As the arguments for teaching young children reading skills appear to outweigh those against, the next questions that parents should ask are “when do I teach my child to read” and “how do I teach my child to read”.

In respect of when to start to teach your baby to read, it has been suggested that a child is ready to learn how to read as soon as he has shown himself ready to learn how to speak.

On the other hand, when deciding exactly how to teach a baby reading skills, parents must keep in mind that, above all, reading lessons must be fun for the child.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comResearch has shown that merely reading to kids – although entertaining for both parents and children – will not actually teach the children how to read.

One method that has been found to obtain results, however, is teaching by flashcard, and here a flashcard is a card that displays both an image and the word that represents that image. These cards are literally flashed at a child for seconds at a time, and the child learns that the word represents the image.

Another method of teaching a toddler reading skills – known as the multisensory method – involves engaging all of the child’s senses to illustrate the meaning of a particular word, and this method achieves results because young children learn intuitively by experiencing rather than rationally by memorizing.

Some babies may require particular attention due to a disability. It is not uncommon for parents and educators to take courses in a variety of special education masters programs. This helps them prepare for any obstacles that may occur.

There are more ways of how to teach a child to read than have been listed above, and even more are being developed every day as finding out your baby can read at the tender age of 2 or 3 will only stimulate parents to share their personalized teaching methods with their communities.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comWe found an excellent right-brain teaching course based on the Shichida Method.

You’ve heard about the incredible possibilities of creating a baby genius. You’ve thought about what it would take to teach my baby to read, well we thought about this too. The only question is how can you get your hands on that proverbial ordinary parents guide to teaching reading?

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comGood news, it just got a whole easier and cheaper ; not only will you solve the problem of how to teach my child to read, you will actually get a powerhouse homeschooling preschool curriculum that will give your child unprecedented skills at the age of 6 months old!

Would your baby benefit by learning a whopping 500 new words – how would that help your bonding and communications?

The homeschooling math component of the Genius Maker Program is absolutely phenomenal. Imagine your child doing baby math before most kids can even talk.

We gotta warn you, make sure you have plenty of facial tissue handy as there will be no stopping the water works. When you see your baby actually reading, doing math problems, and recalling everything you put in front of him, you will weep.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comThe Genius Maker Program is easy-to-use, takes just a few minutes a day, and is extremely affordable at only $34.95 USD. There’s a 60-day money back, ordering is done via secure servers, the package is delivered via instant download so no shipping fees, and no waiting.

Now, you can afford to give your child the same opportunities that once were exclusive to only kids of the rich and privileged. You can give your kids that all-important edge without taking out a second mortgage.

We’re passionate about educating children, as you can see when you read the post on Child Genius, the nightmare one of our staff members went through was a very bitter ordeal. We hope that we can help people avoid such wasted opportunities. This one thing could be a life altering decision that your child will forever thank you for taking a leap of faith. Get started now with a 7-day trial.

Homeschooling Preschool

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comThere are several reasons why homeschooling preschool children makes sense, and possibly the most important of all of these reasons is that homeschooling will give these children a head-start on their education in a safe environment where their parents can supervise their curriculum.

Once parents have decided that they do indeed have the time and the resources required to school their young children at home, the next step would be learning how to homeschool a preschooler.

Homeschooling toddlers is obviously not the same as homeschooling children of elementary school age, and parents would have to develop their own special toddler-based curriculum and not just rely on finding out what the elementary schools are teaching.

There is, fortunately, a lot of information available – both on the Internet and from other sources – concerning what homeschooling lessons and homeschooling activities would suit preschoolers. The information that parents can get their hands on is, in fact, extremely detailed, and different curriculums are available for two year olds, three year olds and four-to-six year olds.

Generally, the curriculums that have been specifically designed for homeschooling preschoolers include lessons in subjects such as social studies, reading, writing, math and science, but homeschooling ideas can involve almost any activity as long as it is fun for the child and it teaches them either certain information or a specific skill.

The materials required for homeschooling kindergarten children are available in almost any format, and parents can choose between, for instance, buying actual physical workbooks or buying and downloading virtual worksheets from the Internet.

Some of the physical workbooks are also reusable in that they are made of a special material that can be wiped clean so that the pages can be written on time and time again.

If it is to be effective, homeschooling for preschoolers must also be fun – definitely fun for the child and, if possible, fun for the parents as well – and homeschooling science activities and homeschool math projects therefore have to be packaged so that they are interesting and engaging for all concerned.

In most curriculums that have been designed for homeschooling pre k children, subjects like math and science are disguised as something else, and, for instance, helping mommy hand out cookies can become an exercise in division while baking the cookies can teach a little one all about basic science and hygiene.

It is also important to design a homeschooling schedule that takes into account the fact that, although young children have a great capacity for learning, they also have an extremely short attention span.

Individual lessons should therefore be fairly short and should take place at regular intervals throughout the day as, this way, parents will get the most out of a curriculum that has been specifically designed for homeschooling for preschool children.

If parents find that homeschooling preschool children works for them, then, once their child turns six or seven, they should be ready to take the next step, which would, of course, be elementary homeschooling.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comMore and more people are looking into homeschooling and it is no wonder why.

There are so many problems with traditional public schools and, to a lesser degree, private schools, where you can spend a small fortune.

If you are thinking about setting up a homeschool for toddlers on up through homeschooling teens, we think it is terrific and congrats would be in order.

Now, of course there will be many things to deal with and one of the largest things to work out would be the homeschooling schedules. This will require structure and focus, but once you set everything up, it will become routine.

GeniusMaker from TeachMyBaby.comAfter you get organized, we hope that you will seriously consider the Genius Maker for all young children in the household. The recommended age for this program is 6 months to 8 years. This will give your children a great foundation in the core subjects as baby math, how to teach a child to read, and memory/recall activities.

It takes just a few minutes each day to accelerate your child’s learning. Think about it, your baby will learn to read before most kids even start speaking – that’s fantastic! This is possible with the use of proven right-brain methods used in the Genius Maker Program.
