Creating a Grammar Wall With Your Children

When it comes to learning the details of language, math or science, there is no reason why your children should look at this as a chore. Creating a grammar wall at home is an opportunity to make learning more like a favorite game. Here are some artistic and exciting ways to get started.

How to Write a Letter to Your Future Adult Child

Kids grow up fast and parents often get too caught up in daily activities to think about their child’s future. Writing down all your experiences, hopes, and lessons for your future adult child will help give them a better understanding of how you were at that age and what they should expect in the coming years. Your child is young now, but what do you want to tell them when they become an adult?

Fitness for Kids

Exercise keeps kids physically and mentally healthy. Children need at least one hour of physical activity a day to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Getting active improves the immune system, makes bones stronger, and decreases risks of diseases later in life. Starting exercise at a young age can prevent certain types of cancers and will help blood pressure and bone density in the future. From rollerblading to joining a sports team, there are many options to get kids out and about.

Wear Your Most Hideous Holiday Outfit

On December 20, students will get in the spirit of the season by wearing their most extreme, outrageous holiday outfits for Holiday Cray Cray Day. In a school-wide competition, the person with the most hideous holiday apparel wins a pizza party for their class.

Giving Back Year-Round

The holiday season is often called the season of giving. We remind our children that it is important to give to others less fortunate than us around Thanksgiving and Christmas because not everyone gets presents or has warm clothes to wear in the cold months. Parents can carry on the season of giving and make it a year-round occasion that kids will look forward to.
