While reading is good, the key is intentional reading, keeping an eye for new words, followup discussions about the story, characters, subject, summarizing etc. These will build engagement and in turn comprehension. We are happy to help children build on this.
Math surrounds us..for some it is a joy and others confounding! It can be easily applied. We are here to help you apply, connect and play with it!
