The BORN2READ Results are in!

Results

Wow – I cannot believe we are just about to head into Week Eleven of Term Two!  To say it has been an adventure, returning fulltime teaching in a Prep class, would be a huge understatement!  It has been an amazing and an exciting journey and one that I am very grateful that I have […]

Thank you for your concerns – I appreciate your time!

BORN2READ

It has been an interesting month. I have always welcomed comments and critiques of the BORN2READ experience, but earlier this month I was floored, when I received a list of unfounded concerns about BORN2READ. I have to say, my initial reaction was disbelief that someone could get the BORN2READ Experience so wrong. Then I decided […]

It’s All In The Detail!

I have always said that my BORN2READ® readers have been road-tested by their intended audience. And I have always said, that not always is the feedback glowing. In fact, some characters have been shelved so quickly, it would make your head spin! I am still recovering from the shattering, overwhelming consensus that my dinosaurs looked […]

Commitment – what a wonderful concept!

Commitment

At the beginning of this year, I decided I would embrace the world of facials and skin care. I had never indulged in such ‘pampering’ before and foolishly thought, it would be just a matter of turning up once a month, enjoy the attention and relaxation, and then, a few months down the track, I […]

Where Does it Rain? On the plain, on the plain!

Practise

Recently, my father and I went to see the musical, ‘My Fair Lady’ and it was brilliant!! We went to a matinee on a Sunday, after hosting a family reunion the night before, and so to say we were feeling a little bit tired, is a huge understatement. I was worried I wouldn’t stay awake! […]

I Will Change the World – I Just Need Your Help!

Change the world

Quite a few years ago, I thought it would be a great idea to complete a Master Degree in Education.  I’d like to say, that my motivation for this decision was to increase my understanding of education and become a better teacher, but I would be lying.  All of my friends were studying, so rather […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR! WOOHOO!

New Year

I know, I know, I’m only a couple of months late, but as they say, better late than never.  I do have some very good reasons for my tardiness, which I really need to share. To say it has been a challenging start to the year, would not even come close to describing the past […]

Here I am again!!!

phases

So in a previous blog (The Four Phases), I outlined the four phases of any project that I undertake. I have just re-read that blog and see that, at the time of writing that blog, and for that project, I was in between Phase Two and Three, with the light in the tunnel, burningly close. […]

Sight Words – it’s not all about you!

sight words

My passion for teaching young children to read using sight words is no secret. However, what I have failed to articulate in the past: it is not my only vice nor should it be, in the quest to teach children to read. It amuses me that an often hotly debated topic is: phonics Vs sight […]

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

The celebrations are done – BORN2READ is officially ten years old!! To say I am very humbled to have made it to such a milestone, is a huge understatement. When I began this journey, I had no idea where it would lead.  But now, ten years on, BORN2READ has grown from a home-based business to […]
