Welcome to Mommy Teacher!

My name is Rebecca Murray. I am a stay at home mom who is also an Elementary School Teacher. I recently decided to take some time off from teaching to stay at home with my son. I was in the classroom for 9 years, and I have taught several subjects.

As teacher, I was asked by parents,"How can you help my child?, or "How can I challenge my child more?" With that in mind, I have decided to start this blog to help parents answer those questions.

Please feel free to post any comments, ideas or questions. Please remember to do this in polite, mindful manner.
Thank you.

Good Day Everyone!

It is a hot and beautiful day here in VA. I recently just saw a back to school commerical. It is right around the corner. I can't believe the summer has gone so fast. What did you do with you child this summer? Remember reading is a very important activity during the summer. Did you know your child's reading level could drop one level if they don't continue to reading during the summer? I had many parents tell me my son or daughter was reading at 2nd grade level when the finished 1s t grade. What happened? The first thing that I ask them is did your son or daughter read this summer. They tell me no. I tell them that reading is a skill and needs to be practiced daily, and even over the summer!
