HOMER Co-Founder Stephanie Dua with her daughter.

It’s February. Love is in the air. There are also a lot of spitballs flying in our national conversation. This Valentine’s Day, we could all use a dose of some good old-fashioned kindness.

As moms (we’ve got six kiddos between us), and founders of HOMER, the digital learn-to-read program that partners with parents to teach young children to read, we’ve been thinking a lot this season about books and activities that teach kids the importance of kindness, tolerance, empathy and understanding.

Valentine’s Day seems like the perfect holiday for spotlighting kindness and teaching our kids that even the smallest acts of generosity can have an outsized impact on the world.

Homer, the #1 Learn-to-Read Program, offers hundreds of printables for children who are learning to read or who are working to build advanced knowledge. Our practice sheets are perfect for when screen time is over. 

We’ve compiled a list of the best printables to use for beginning readers. These sheets work directly with Level 1 in our Learn to Read section within the program. 

1. Traceable Letters
Help your child work on his or her fine motor skills!

2. Problem Solving
Encourage your little learner to use critical thinking.

3. Sound Recognition
Let your child practice sounds of letters.

4. Letter Recognition
Your child will learn to sight words (and use his or her creativity!)

5. Free Writing
Boost your child’s confidence by allowing him or her to write from the imagination

You can find all of these printables (and more) here: http://bit.ly/2cP1F9o
