  • How Using A Slant Board Can Help Improve Your Child's Reading Comprehension

    If you're working with your child to help him or her learn to read, you want to take a look at the Slant Boards Visual Edge has to offer. The board can help kids to read by slanting books or reading material at a 22 degree angle, which makes it easier to see the words on the page.

    The legs of the slant board also collapse, so the device is easy to carry and transport. The book latch at the bottom of the board and the paperclip up top are ideal for holding books of any size or keeping papers secure. The boards are available in colors of the blue, yellow, and green varieties.

For instance, the slanted lap pillow makes for comfortable reading in bed or while traveling. Visual Edge also sells dry erase markers in several colors and magnet sets that help children create eye-catching shapes while learning more about geometry. If you need replacement parts for your slant boards, Visual Edge offers paperclips and book catches as well as board legs to keep the Slant Board functioning well.

    While the Slant Board can help kids to read the textbooks and leisure reading materials of their choice, there are also a few tips you can incorporate into your child or student's daily schedule that will improve reading skills. For instance, set aside a time each day to read with your child. This creates a routine and sends the message to your son or daughter that reading is important. Scheduling a time for the entire family to read together can also be fun and engaging for the child and help him or her to associate reading with having a great time. It's also a good idea to surround your child with as much reading material as possible. This gives him or her options when it comes to learning about a variety of subjects. When young readers have an array of choices, they are more likely to read for pleasure, which increases comprehension and can boost a child's confidence in the classroom.

  • What Is The Incline Board Reading Tool?

    If you're motivating your child to read more and want to include more tools and resources in the process, the incline board reading tool from Visual Edge can help. The board has a number of features that can make reading more appealing for children, and can even make it easier for you to read to and with your child on a daily basis.

    The incline board reading tool is available in neon colors like yellow, blue and green, making the items immediately attractive to a child. The board slants the book or magazine your child is reading at a 22 degree angle to make it easier to see while he/she is sitting. This frees your child's hands to create flashcards with you of words that he/she needs to become more familiar with. The Slant Board also has two small legs that collapse, so you can take the board with you anywhere.

    Visual Edge's Slant Boards also have a dry-erase surface, so your child can write down words while he/she is reading. Writing is essential to learning how to read well, so purchasing a desktop adjustable slant board that can help with both important skills is certainly helpful. The company also sells dry-erase markers.

    In addition to the Slant Boards, Visual Edge also offers a lap pillow so your child can read from his/her laptop. The computer fits comfortably on the pillow so the screen can be seen clearly, and there are two Velcro straps on the item that hold the laptop in place. There are plenty of online resources like games and reading puzzles that you can incorporate into your child's reading time, and with Visual Edge's laptop pillow, these electronic lesson plans are easily accessed.

    Now that you know where to purchase the tools for improving your child's reading, incorporating certain tasks, like reading a book with your son or daughter every day or having them read to you as you run errands and complete daily tasks will be much easier.
