I’m very fascinated with you creativity. I wanted to know what activities to recommend for a child having problems with reading comprehension?
Thanks Amah, and what a great question. I guess my answer would depend on the age of your child and the sort of books you're reading…
I've been kinda lucky in that my kids have always been avid readers (even when they were tiny babies, they both adored books). When they were really little (under a year), I never read stories, instead we looked at thousands of books that had clear pictures, and we'd point to this and that, and I'd 'narrate' based on whatever my child was focusing on. We'd ask questions and ponder, so that the reading experience was more interactive. We only progressed to reading the actual words in storybooks when they were toddlers, and we started with very simple predictable story lines. (A lot of books designed for this young age have very abstract concepts in them, which I think are actually more designed to entertain the parents than the child). Does that help?
Otherwise, here are a few posts that deal with comprehension for older kids, maybe one of these might help… http://www.fantasticfunandlearning.com/comprehens… http://mosswoodconnections.com/activities-for-rea… http://growingbookbybook.com/modeling-comprehensi…
My name is Alan Williams and I’d love to discuss with you the possibility of buying some
advertising space on your website(danyabanya.com).
If this is something you’re interested in, then please let me know so that we
can arrange a deal that suits both of us.
Thanks for taking the time to reply
Hi Alan. Thanks for your message. I do offer some advertising options for family friendly type products on Danya Banya. You can find some information on our advertising page here: http://www.danyabanya.com/advertise/, however the scope really depends on how well your product fits with my audience. It's best if you email me on danya (at) danyabanya (dot) com, and we can discuss further. Thanks so much for your interest. Kindest, Danya.
We (my wife & myself) have enjoyed your pages. Wondering if more pics of your angel JJ can be shared. Assuming she is getting bigger by now.
I’m so glad that you enjoy reading our activities. JJ is much bigger – she’s 6.5 years old now. She still does lots of our activities, but sometimes she prefers not to be included in the photos, and I respect her choice. But every now and again she lets me include a photo – you’ll just have to keep an eye out. 🙂
Hi Danya Banya,

Iam very interesting in this activity and teach to kids. and more and more I learn about this practice and teach to kids. I need more about this craft activities and its benefits. I found your site. Could you please support me to develop my self furthermore.
Hi Suda, so great to hear from you. How exciting to be teaching 4+ & 7+ year olds – they’re both great ages for art & craft! You’ll find loads of activities on here. Probably your best bet is to look at the activity lists by ages – that’s a good starting point. I also have lots of great ideas on my pinterest boards (pinterest.com/danyabanya) if you’re after more. Have fun, and good luck!
