School Time - Time to Start Reading with Your Child

Parents - Home Schooler - Now that School is started, it is time to spend some time with your children reading. Reading is an important, if not the most important part of your child's education. In my experience in working with children as a teacher and a tutor, I have found that a child that can not read well will not excel. The child that can not read many times becomes discourage, which can lead to other behavioral problems. The solution to the problem is not the school spending time with the child teaching them to read, but the parent. Children that have a parent or parents actively involved in their reading and learning will have more success in life than the child that is left to themselves to learn at home. My challenge to parents, grandparents, is to become involved with teaching a child how to read and enjoy reading. Your child will be happier and have a better learning experience in school.

10 Tips for Choosing Books for children of All Ages
(Taken from Reading Horizon's News Letter)
1.) Have children choose their own books as soon as they start showing a preference for one over another.

2.) Find the children's section of your local library. Get to know the librarian, who can be a great resource.

3.) Find out what your child is interested in, and help choose books that are related to his or her interests.

4.) Ask friends, family, and teachers what books their children have enjoyed; try a book swap.

5.) If your child does not like a book you are reading together, put it away. Reading is a fun time to share, not a time to fight.

6.) Again, Again, Again! Children may want to read the same book many times, even if you think they have outgrown it.

7.) Use book listsgenerated by various literacy organizations; they usually have good suggestions. For example: American Library Association, International Reading Association, Children's Book Guild.

8.) Look for books that you will like reading aloud. Your enjoyment will shine through and become contagious.

9.) Try out different kinds of books to see what appeals to your children.

10.) Have fun!Show your children the joy of reading and how it can open up a brand new world!

The Way to Heaven - Are You Going?

Are you 100% sure that you will spend eternity in Heaven? You can Know for sure and here is how:

1. ) Acknowledge that you are a sinner.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:23
2.) Realize the judgement for your sin is death, eternal separation from God.
"For the wages of sin is death..." Romans 6:23a
"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire ..." Revelation 20:15
3.) Accept God's payment for your sin.
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
4.) Ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you.
"That if thou shalt confess thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Romans 10:9 -10
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Romans 10:13

Friend, if you would like to be saved you can simply pray:

" Lord Jesus, I realize that I am a sinner and without you there is no other way to heaven. I therefore ask you to come into my heart and save me. Amen"
