Tip Tuesday – Hot Lava

Welcome to our 1st Tip Tuesday!! I often hear from moms – “I don’t remember how I learned to read. I don’t even know where to start, what can I do?” In response, I would give them some ideas – most of them revolved around games and playing. But I would walk away feeling like you moms needed more. That’s where the inspiration for Tip Tuesday came from – my desire to give moms activities and ideas for helping them teach their child to read in a way that is fun for everyone!
