This book is about David, who can’t sit still in class.
I am a SAHM/WAHM of three boys ranging in age from 3 to 18. We are working on saving enough for college at the same time as affording diapers. I author a few blogs, including http://teched4kids.com. I currently teach computer information technology classes for the local university and have in the past taught workshops for kid's in technology education besides being the Kentucky State FIRST LEGO League Championship Coordinator from 2005 to 2008.
All the reviews on Amazon are good, and I totally agree! It reminds me a little of my middle son who if he sees a button he must press it. It’s like an irresistible urge strikes him. But in this case David is in class and annoying the teacher.
For me it highlighted the difference in types of learning for kids. Some children learn better lectured in a classroom, but many learn better for by ‘doing’ and interacting. So many great ideas so little time.
I help with the local hands-on-science museum and see it all the time – where kids come in, try things, and leave excited about everything they have tried. They also remember more of what they learned!
This is one of four books in the series about children who learn differently. Each of the books explains different learning challenges (dyslexia, difficulty with timed tests, handwriting and ADHD) in kid friendly lingo.
