Is this something you'd watch? lolajessup Due July 25; 2 kids; 1 angel baby; Beaverton, Michigan 44057 posts

So every time I open a thread about teaching preschoolers different skills, even some elementary skills, I find it so difficult to explain myself to people. If I made a YouTube channel with videos modeling the use of developmentally appropriate activities and teaching methods is that something you would watch or think would be useful to people who are always asking things like "how do I teach my kid letters?" I just want to help people see how to teach young children in an appropriate manner instead of resorting to worksheets and tracing.



Thoughts, suggestions? Just wanting to bounce some ideas.

I love using all different kinds of methods, so, probably so. As long as it didn't come across as "This is the only right way to do this..." because I don't believe there is any ONE right way to teach a child, considering we all learn so differently.

Well duh lol :D no but really, it would show many different approaches for different types of children.



Hmmmm, now I need to find children for my movies. I guess I could strategically have the camera person not show the child's face :)

You ladies rock!!! I'm so excited now. I'm visualizing it now!!! It's weird how my brain works. It's so hard to explain and would be better done visually and verbally than through text. I'm gonna start making a list of topics. Dang, I need to write a book but this would be so much more helpful I think. But I have considered writing a book series like "101 ways to teach letters" or "101 ways to teach your child colors". Maybe titled the DAP Collection. But who has time for books, were busy moms lol!!!
