|Tips#1: Read Together Every Day|
|Read to your child every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close together. Bedtime is an especially great time for reading together.|
|Tips#2: Give Everything A Name|
|You can build comprehension skills early, even with the littlest child. Play games that involve naming or pointing to objects. Say things like, "Where's your nose?" and then, "Where's Mommy's nose?" Or touch your child's nose and say, "What's this?"|
There are lots of university programs that cater for equine studies, such as the option to achieve a professional riding certificate or a professional horse training certificate. In addition to this there are also schools available that teach children with specific disabilities about how they can care and ride a horse as part of therapy programs.
You will also find there are schools available that teach horseback riding as a sporting activity if that is what you want for your child. These tend not to be full time schools but are instead included as private lessons within a wider curriculum of activities. So whether you are interested in competing in dressage events or show-jumping and even barrel racing, there are a range of equestrian boarding schools available for both young children and teenagers. These schools also have stables where a child can study how to care for and nurture a horse. This can teach a child responsibility and they can develop a friendship of sports with the animal.
|Tips#3: Say How Much You Enjoy Reading Together|
|Tell your child how much you enjoy reading with him or her. Look forward to this time you spend together. Talk about "story time" as the favorite part of your day.|
|Tips#4: Be Interactive|
|Engage your child so he or she will actively listen to a story. Discuss what's happening, point out things on the page, and answer your child's questions. Ask questions of your own and listen to your child's responses.|
It has to be said that this kind of school is every child's dream, because instead of worrying about having a gym lesson or practicing ballet you can actually learn to ride a horse and understand how to control this marvelous animal. These horses range in temperament so that you can be sure to find either a steady and cheerful horse or one that is more challenging to hold. You will also be taught how to handle these horses through using a range of commands. It is good for a student to take the opportunity to handle horses of different temperaments.
For those advanced students who are already well established riders and are possibly already competing in competitions, they can use a more advanced horse that will respond well to any command. As always there will be a stable supervisor on hand to enable you to voice any concerns you may have and can provide useful answers students' questions. These professionals are also there to ensure that a child and horse are well-matched. This is important for both the safety of the rider and the horse.
In a high quality equestrian boarding school, children will get highly professional training from those who already have a high amount of experience in both dealing with horses and teaching children to ride.
This is certainly a fantastic way to learn while having fun in an educational environment.
|Tips#5: Read It Again And Again And Again|
|Your child will probably want to hear a favorite story over and over. Go ahead and read the same book for the 100th time! Research suggests that repeated readings help children develop language skills.|
|Tips#6: Talk About Writing, Too|
|Draw your child's attention to the way writing works. When looking at a book together, point out how we read from left to right and how words are separated by spaces.|
