About Reading
Joined November 2014
I am a Special Ed supporting Teacher in a class of Kindergarten through 5th graders. In my 21st year of teaching I am seeing children who do not say sentences. They are not problem solving. They have very little human interaction since even teacher direction is done a lot on a smartboard. Yes, it keeps attention, but children are learning if something is not fast paced, or entertaining, then they do not have the attention skills to tolorate the slower experience. In organizations, everything is sugar coated for children. Children are not allowed to fail or even be the slightest bit prepared for the world they will face after school. I feel this is something I can help with through my antics and my clowning character Starfish. Children who cannot talk will receive practice while they tell a puppet something. My area of expertise is language impairments and autism as well as learning disabled and children with attention and focus issues. I also teach Mexican Adult Students reading. I use the Edmark Program, Library Books they check out, and We are working on writing as well. I have 2 websites on wealthy affiliate. One is http://esladultreadingforbeginners.siterubix.com and http://beaclown.siterubix.com
At Be A Clown, I am trying to bring clowning to the world the way I enjoy it. No scary or creepy clowns. These clowns can make a difference in a positive way to all ages.

Thanks for the follow. I have a son with Down Syndrome (now 20) and through him also meet a number of autistic. When I get a gap will take closer look at your reading site. May help my situation where reading and communication still presents difficulties.
Reply

One thing I have noticed with a student with Down Syndrome. They think whether they will continue a motion. However, 9 times out of 10, a student with autism if I start a motion they continue that motion. Example if I want them to pick up a ball, usually bending them over is enough for a child with autism, but the Down Syndrome child will stop and decide whether or not they want to continue.

So true! I believe autistic often communicate in pictures. My son's autistic "girlfriend" sends endless cell phone messages, not in writing but in symbol form. (If you've not seen, try and watch the movies, "Extremely Close and Incredibly Loud" and "Temple Grandin" Fascinating stuff!

Hello, and that's an interesting background. I'd also noticed that as the digital age progressed, human interaction at younger ages has decreased. So many kids just interact with electronic devices. Is that having a significant negative impact on their overall development?
Reply

Even the teenagers and young adults have a small understanding of reality. What about the ones who swipe all the time. The skills they may be learning but they don't have any practice working with their hands. I am finding more and more are pronouncing numbers wrong. Nobody is correcting them because they can answer a question on a smart board. Yes. Overall development is affected.
Reply
SteveHill Premium
Good point, and that has interesting implications for instructional design. While they have easy access to more information than ever before, if it's not structured and reinforced in the ways that humans need to learn, it's not going to sink in. Thanks for the feedback, it's definitely something to think about.

I need all the stories from the ones who have lived longer than I as I can get. There is so much I do not relate to about life. Even though I am living it, I have not a clue about so much.
Reply
grampamike Premium
LOL, take it from me, feeling clueless gets worse with age. Perhaps that's the point. We get to go on a never ending journey through life using our experiences to put our life puzzle together and to simply learn. One day our grandkids will come visit and ask, "why," and we can look back and say, "hmmm, been there and done that." Maybe the whole point is to simply help the next guy take the next step up the ladder of life. So many things have happened to me that I don't understand but I got through the experience so when someone crosses my path then I can help them learn from the experience. I'm a stroke survivor. Why me? What's the point? Who knows, but what I do know is that now I can take the hand of a newly recovering stroke survivor and offer encouragement. Grampas sure do think about odd stuff but once you reach a certain age then you can be as eccentric as you want, lol ... GrampaMike

We struggle and when we actually get through a trench, we understand more about being human. I see these kids and it is like...let them struggle. I do not know what everyone is expecting. Are they just going to get up out of bed one morning and be able to do all the little things by themselves they have never learned to do?

I just know I see so much about how these systems are going down the tubes. We lived in a successful system 20 years plus. Then it started falling. It takes most people a while before anyone notices. Then they start forgetting what it used to be and just say, "well it has always been this way."

My life is teaching and learning. The reward is when kids can successfully unlearn something they were taught wrong. I see kids learn to form a letter wrong. It is so hard to turn that around. They do not teach cursive anymore so teachers think it is not necessary to teach right form.

KeithBunge Premium
I have no formal degree but have gone to over 6 years of training at various colleges, trade schools, and other trainings. I always felt that the real learning did not start until after school. Most of the study that I have done on my own was far more in depth than any of the formal training that I have received with the exception of computer programming at Clover Park. I tried this on my own for 10 years and I could make some but not a lot of progress until I learned the basics from professional programmers. I have read books on affiliate marketing for 3 years but have made no actual progress towards putting up a site until I came to this program.

Children are our future. I am seeing kids who will knock over a bottle and they go to town on the spill. Nobody puts the bottle back up. Problem solving experiences is what our children need. I have even heard that since soldiers do power points so quick and not so much talking at the table, that decisions are made too quickly...not enough time to think. That is what is happening in our schools with computer tests. would love to go back to Reading and Writing and Arithemetic. Then with a solid foundation, the other can build on it.

Thanks for visiting. I am enjoying building. I am visiting aspects of clowning I never knew existed. I want people to understand that clowning is much more than makeup and acting silly. It is an art formand the uUnited states is officially running short of clowns. Could this be affecting our economy? In a way. Yes

Teaching in Special ed and regular is rewarding. I like the teachable moments where I can share part of my experiences growing up. I liked to hear my teachers "birdwalk" That is something that is severely looked down on by the education experts today.

Glad to hear from someone who appreciates my work. It means so much. Here where I live, my husband and I are both made fun of by his coworkers because we are clowns. But it doesn't matter because I love it.

I enjoy working with children with autism. More and more I am getting more accountability if I treat them more normal. Also puppets work well to get their communication out.

Never know, I know the movies or the trends going on have not put clowns in a good light but this was not anywhere in my childhood. I met a young lady who said she was afraid as a child but ended up being a clown for a festival. Balloon Twisting is fun and gets great tips and so is face painting. You have clowns who might where a silly vest and that is all. Don't not be a clown because of the makeup. It is optional.

The art of being able to read and write is so lost. I can pick up books from 100 years ago and the vocabulary, the language is so unlike what we see today. Children used to read novels at the age of 6. There is no such thing as a well loved library book that is checked out again and again. Much is because of the Accelerated Reading program. Children are not aloud to struggle with something they want to read. They are not aloud to check out a library book in school more than 1 time. The love of reading and the focus it takes to be developed is almost non-existent.

Susan, thanks for the follow and back atcha. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You have just found the right place to learn all there is to know about this online marketing community and how to build a highly successful business.
Just remember, this is a marathon race, not a short sprint.
So just have in mind that this online business success is not only going to take a lot of hard work from you but also dedication and plenty of time as you cannot become successful in a day or two.
Don't be in a hurry for success. Just do things right the first time around and success will meet you the harder you work.
Follow Kyle's videos and instructions and if you get stuck....well.......that is what the community is for! Just ask and you will receive everyone’s help each other out because we all care!

Communication from person to person is about null and void with children. Disability or not. Children learn from what they live. What do they live? Video games, texting and Internet. They get little chance to say yeah, to let the person talking know they are still listening.

Very worrisome. These are the future adults. If they don't practice talking when they are young? When will they? They really have a difficult time with even figuring out what they are told to do. Their wold is tech and video games unless they are privileged to be part of a family business or their parents go totally against the norm to raise them.
