Discover Lit Kits
· Order separately or monthly subscriptions (prices vary)
The research-based, guiding principles that we teach in our DiscoverLit Kits
each month are based on ways to motivate and engage readers
intrinsically! This means we teach kids to love learning because it is SO FUN
to get SMART, not because they are getting stickers or points! The
principles we teach you, as parents, grandparents, home-schoolers, and
caregivers, will truly help you give the gift of life-long learning to a child.
These principles are NOT gimmicks or fads. These are proven principles
that work with all children. Small, daily doses of these activities make a
huge difference over time. Not only will you teach your child what expert
readers and writers DO, but you will do it WITH your child. This powerful
and interactive time WITH your child will build a sweet relationship between
the two of you and allow your child to feel a great sense of belonging.
Belonging is motivating for children.
