Teach New Skills With Tactile, Hands-On Learning

Help your child master new skills – like spelling new words or using apostrophes correctly – by experiencing them in a different way. For example, give her a can of shaving cream and – in the bathtub – let her practice a new skill on the wall. Practicing new skills in a hands-on manner helps children fully assimilate what they're learning.
