    Back To School Tips for Families
                                                 Back to school is here again.  The carefree days of summer are fading and signs of fall slowly cropping up. Before you know it, you’ll be filling backpacks with school supplies, packing lunchboxes, and waiting for the school bus. Now is the time to start preparing your child for the transition. Beyond the basics of school clothes shopping and buying supplies, here are some important things you can do to prepare your kids for back to school. Adjust to a School Year Schedule After a summer of staying up late and sleeping in, getting up on time for school is tough for kids. Set your family up for success by easing into earlier bed and wake up times a few weeks before school starts. And practice getting ready in the morning to... Read More...
  • Growing Organic Veggies With a Preschooler

    Growing Organic Veggies With a Preschooler
    We try to keep things as natural as possible around here, especially when it comes to our food. We originally moved to Gloucester so that my husband could pursue an apprenticeship on an organic farm, and we spent four glorious growing seasons awash in local, organic produce. These days, Erik is no longer working on a farm due to the (totally awesome) increased time and financial requirements of our growing family. We are members of a CSA, but it's not the same. We miss growing our own food, at least vicariously through Erik! Luckily, our community boasts a brilliant organization called Backyard Growers, whose mission is to provide the resources necessary to help local residents have access to healthy food ... by growing it themselves! They operate a Backyard Gardens program and, through this program, will actually build an 8'x4' raised bed (complete with local compost!) right in your backyard. They offer workshops to get you started, help you map... Read More...
  • Learning to Write in Preschool

    Learning to Write in Preschool
    Teaching a child to write their name is the first step in literacy for a young child. It should be an enjoyable, engaging experience for a child. A child's writing typically goes through several stages, beginning with scribbling. From there, children tend to write using more letter-like shapes and later, a child may create a piece of writing that includes random strings of letters. It is important to recognize that each effort of crayon to paper has value. Get out a small white board or a piece of paper, whiteboard pens or markers. Sit the child down at a table and sit next to him/her. Put the paper/whiteboard and the pens/marker in front of the child. First, write their name for them on the paper and explain that this is how you write their name. Then write their name so that they can trace it. Have them trace a few times until they get the hang of it. Practice this... Read More...

    Summer Chores and a Whiny 11 year Old
    Summer in our household will officially arrive June 20th. Anyway, I am determined to be more organized in the area of summer activities, chores, and media time with my kids. I've been pretty organized before, but I've noticed some problems and I wanted to tweak my plans again. That's the beauty of keeping schedules, you learn to be flexible when it's just not quite right. As they grow, so must your flexibility! Here is a chore list that I found to help my son be more organized without a lot of stress and arguing!  It's tough in the summer to maintain any kind of schedule or normalcy because I work from home and my son doesn't have to rush to be anywhere!  I am pre-occupied and he gets away with murder. I am convinced this summer will be our best ever and hopefully we will develop a pace that is conducive to all. I hope this helps your family.  I... Read More...

    The Importance of Preschool
    "There's increasing evidence that children gain a lot from going to preschool," says Parents advisor Kathleen McCartney, PhD, dean of Harvard Graduate School of Education, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. "At preschool, they become exposed to numbers, letters, and shapes. And, more important, they learn how to socialize -- get along with other children, share, contribute to circle time."Craft           Statistics show that a majority of kids attend at least one year of preschool: According to the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER), more than two-thirds of 4-year-olds and more than 40 percent of 3-year-olds were enrolled in a preschool in 2005. "Children who attend high-quality preschool enter kindergarten with better pre-reading skills, richer vocabularies, and stronger basic math skills than those who do not," says NIEER director W. Steven Barnett, PhD. "Every child should have some sort of group experience before he starts kindergarten," says Amy Flynn, director of New York... Read More...

    7 Steps to Reading Success
       Read 15-20 minutes per day. Keep a variety of books on hand. Discuss the story as you read. Read out loud using funny voices and act the story out.  (This helps to keep a child's attention) Point out words as you read. Create Flash Cards to Identify letters.  If you have mastered letter recognition, then create flash cards that teach letter sounds.  If that is mastered start teaching your child to sound out words.  Helpful hint.....Learn to recognize 3 letter sounds and once that is mastered add 3 more until all 26 are mastered.    Flash Cards 1-  Letter Sounds Flash Cards Read everything!  Street signs, Menu's, Store Sign's, Billboards, etc.    I love the Beach Book- Please keep in mind, the earlier in a child's life you begin to read, the better your child will be.  Make reading fun, engaging, and ultimately make a solid academic foundation in your child's education.
